Submitting one's cupcake design online seems easy enough. But replicating your submission in public in front of hundred of pairs of eyes is certainly quite daunting! And that was the challenge that the 55 finalists of Celcom Cupcake Challenge went through in Publika yesterday.
700 entries were received from 664 unique participants of which 55 were chosen to take part in the finals. Old and young battled it out. All walks of life had their share of fun in Publika. Ultimately 3 top winners had to be chosen based on creativity, uniqueness, best decoration and closest match to their submitted online entries with the 1Malaysia theme.
I reckon that this lil girl must be the youngest participant.
No one participated in vain since everyone received something for their efforts. 97 participants with the most likes receive a LG Prada mobile phone each. The other 564 other participants receive a RM200 voucher that can be used at any bluecube outlet in Malaysia.
Congratulations to the top 3 winners Vincent, Juneci and Mac who went home with cash winnings and a Samsung SIII each. Here's some pics from yesterday!
