What if I told you that simply by eating as many cupcakes as humanly possible in three hours, you could help end hunger in the Delaware Valley?! Nope– it’s not a dream! This Sunday, May 31st, we’re calling all cupcake fanatics in the Greater Philadelphia Area to step up and become hunger superheroes at Philabundance’s 5th Annual Cupcake Smash!

This young, fun community event brings together bakers, guest judges and cupcake fans alike to raise money and fight hunger in our region. Since its inception, Cupcake Smash has doubled in size each year. Help us smash our previous goals to raise $50,000 which will help to provide 100,000 meals to our neighbors in need!


This year, volunteer bakers were challenged to find inspiration in everyone’s favorite weekend treat– BRUNCH! Bakers will be competing for both bragging rights and awards. Mostly bragging rights. Judges this year include:

  • Daniela D’Ambrosio, The Pickled Heron
  • Matt Fein, Federal Donuts
  • Toni Johnson, Philabundance Community Kitchen
  • Jamie Landers, Luscious Bakery
  • Sara May, Bing Bing Dim Sum
  • Jill McClennen, Formerly of The Sweet Life Bakery
  • Rob Mitchell, The Cow and The Curd
  • Peter Scarola, R2L
  • Stephen Wilson, 10Arts at The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia


Wendy-Rollins_white-space-v2This delicious event will be hosted by Wendy Rollins of Radio 104.5! Wendy hosts middays (10am-3pm) on Radio 104.5 in Philadelphia and loves cupcakes almost as much as she loves music. She has been in Philadelphia since the station’s inception eight years ago and has become a fast fan of all things Philly. She also produces Radio 104.5 Studio Sessions, a collection of their best Studio Session performances, every year to benefit Philabundance.
