Nicola’s Donuts Holds Cupcake Creation Contest Now Through January 1st
Tampa, Fla. (December 12, 2012) – With 2012 quickly coming to an end, Nicola’s Donuts (with locations on West Busch Boulevard and North Dale Mabry Highway) is baking up ideas for a new tasty treat and needs your help!
From now through January 1, Nicola’s Donuts is asking its Facebook fans to help them create (and name) a new delicious menu item as part of its Cupcake Creation Contest. The winning recipe will be featured as the 2013 Cupcake of the Year.
Starting on December 12, Nicola’s will pit its yummiest confections against each other as fans vote first on cake flavors, then frosting options, then toppings, ultimately concocting their own cupcake creation to be announced on New Year’s Day.
First round (December 12 – 18)
- Involves eight cake flavors, from chocolate to red velvet, apple to pumpkin. Each day, fans will be asked to decide between two options until only one remains.
Second round (December 19 – 25)
- Involves eight of the creamiest frostings Nicola’s can mix up in the same head-to-head battles as Round One. After the top frosting choice emerges from a group that includes espresso, pink vanilla buttercream and strawberry, Round Three will commence.
Final round (December 26 – January 1)
- Will it be milk chocolate curls, rainbow sprinkles or one of the other six delicious options? Fans will select one top topping out of eight options.
The resulting cupcake will be immortalized as Nicola’s 2013 Featured Cupcake of the Year and will be served complementary all year long with any purchase of a dozen cupcakes.
“At Nicola’s, we are always trying to guess what the sweet fanatics of Tampa Bay are craving,” said Rachel Waatti, owner of Nicola’s Donuts. “This contest serves as a great opportunity to ask our loyal fans and customers what they are looking for in a cupcake, and we cannot wait to see what they come up with so we can start baking!”
