Calling all cupcake enthusiasts! Cupcakes for Goodness Sake is back and bigger than ever. Hosted by Carelink at Bespoke Video Production on Sunday, October 23 at 2:00 p.m. Cupcakes for Goodness Sake showcases amateur and professional bakers alike in a friendly competition. This year’s baking challenge: to create a delicious and unique cupcake inspired by everyone’s favorite Sunday tradition: brunch! Cupcakes for Goodness Sake raises funds + friends for CareLink and brings awareness to the critical needs of older people in the Central Arkansas community.
In anticipation of this fun-filled event, we’re sharing each baker’s unique expertise + talent.
Christy Milligan of Cupcakes on Kavanaugh is thrilled to be a part of Cupcakes for Goodness Sake’s friendly competition!
Inviting Arkansas: What is your signature baking style?
Christy Milligan: EVERYTHING from scratch baked fresh EVERY DAY! We even candy our own pecans.
IA: What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
CM: Probably the Oatmeal Cream pie (on Wednesdays) – it is my Nanny Verkler’s recipe, was her favorite, and is now mine!
IA: Have you ever had a kitchen fiasco?
CM: YES – for sure! The one I remember the most was when I was pretty much doing everything by myself – the baking, icing, customer service…everything. I had finished 24 custom decorated cupcakes and foolishly set the box on a bar stool. You can guess what happened next…SPLAT! Needless to say, I fired up the ovens and started over. Not without a good cry first!
IA: What keeps you living + giving in Central Arkansas?
CM: I am from Central Arkansas. I have been blessed to have traveled and lived in many different areas but I have to say… Arkansas is quite a hidden gem. The people in Arkansas and Central Arkansas are wonderful, giving people, which makes it pretty easy to give back.
IA: Why did you choose to be a participant in Cupcakes for Goodness Sake?
CM: Because it such a FUN event, and what a better way to help raise money for a great cause while eating some of the best sweets in town!
IA: What’s the anticipated highlight of the event for you?
CM: Taking down Hannah Lavender – JUST KIDDING! I’m looking forward to tasting all of the delicious treats baked by the fabulous bakers from around the area, seeing all of the kiddos have a fun time, AND watch while people not only open their mouths for sweets, but open their hearts & pocketbooks to raise money for Carelink!
