Willy Wonka-Style Contest At SusieCakes This Saturday, July 18
As part of the bakery's third birthday celebrations, golden tickets will be baked into ten cupcakes at all three locations, including Newport Beach. The lucky winners won't be handed the keys to the company, sadly, but they will get prizes such as specialty cakes, five dozen mini cupcakes, a dozen cupcakes and free attendance to a baking class.
All ten winners will be entered to win the grand prize: free annual membership to the cake-of-the-month plan, normally worth $600.
In addition, each branch will feature a day-long party with live DJs (!) and giveaways.
And as if further proof were needed that comfort food is booming during these uncertain economic times, SusieCakes is opening a fourth bakery in Manhattan Beach (not quite OC but almost), and will be throwing a "grand party" to mark the occasion, on Saturday July 25 from 10 a.m to 7 p.m.
