Nancy Sorensen contacted Raising Madison earlier this week asking if we’d write a post about the Iron Cupcake Madison Challenge happening this Sunday, June 26. The theme is Children’s Literature, and profits will go to benefit the Literacy Network. I don’t think she had any idea just how excited I would be to share this with you all! Everything about this event is near and dear to my heart: I love children’s literature, have volunteered with the Literacy Network, and … CUPCAKES!!
The event is this Sunday from 1-3pm at Basie’s Restaurant & Lounge (517 Grand Canyon Drive).
Numerous bakers (including one gluten-free baker!) have baked cupcakes which are interpretations of one of their favorite children’s books. Each ticket costs $7, and that ticket will get you 10-13 mini cupcakes to taste. Each ticket holder votes for their favorites, in a couple of categories.
Literacy Network is a team of teachers, learners, tutors, volunteers and donors all working together to improve adult literacy in Dane County.
