Grab your mixing bowls – the Tie-Dye Cupcake Bake-Off is almost here! We’re excited to welcome teams from all over the world, and this week we’ll be introducing you to a few of them in our Team Spotlight.

Without further ado, meet some of the stars of Tie-Dye Bake-Off 2013!

She’s the First*{OU} at Oakland University (Rochester, MI)

Several of our campus chapters are firing up their ovens next week, and Oakland University is no exception.


STF*{OU} President Lauren Barthold & the chapter’s baking supplies!

Have you participated in the Bake-Off before? This is our first year!  It is our first year as a chapter as well, so as soon as we heard about the bake-off we knew we wanted to be involved.

What’s your favorite tie-dye cupcake topping? We are going old school… sprinkles!


Cupcake Friday Project (Philadelphia, PA / Westmont, NJ)

Melissa at the Cupcake Friday Project added her own unique twist to the bake-off with two autumn-themed treats topped with a maple oat crisp and candied butternut squash seeds. Delicious!

Why did you decide to get involved with the bake-off? I saw mention of the bake-off in a GoodReads newsletter. BecauseI have a baking blog and want to have my own bakery someday, and LOVE raising money for good causes, I figured it was a solid fit.

These autumn-themed cupcakes look delicious!
