Cake Byte: Sweet Surrender Cupcake Recipe Contest

Totally sweet--a chance to win some sweet prizes and insure your cupcake-flavor legacy! Here's the 411 on a totally sweet recipe contest brought to you Sweet Surrender, a Boynton Beach, FL-based bakery!

Do you have a recipe for the tastiest cupcake out there?

Sweet Surrender is searching for a new cupcake to add to its menu of delicious, made-from-scratch cupcakes and will award the creator of the winning recipe with 10% of the first month’s sales of the cupcake sold at Sweet Surrender Cupcake & Cookie Café in Boynton Beach, Florida. The winning cupcake will also be named after the creator!


All of the entries will be reviewed by Sweet Surrender owners Mick and Rosemary Tynski. The baking duo will select their top two recipes and make them for the café’s Grand Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, June 19, 2010. Free samples of the two cupcakes and score cards will be given out to guests, who will judge each on:

  • Visual Appeal
  • Moistness
  • Flavor

The cupcake that scores the highest overall will be the winner!


We hold our cupcakes to the highest standards and request all recipe submissions follow these guidelines:

  • May not contain trans fats or artificial flavors
  • Must be made from scratch entirely (no premade mixes or frostings)
  • One entry per person please
  • All entries must be received by June 4, 2010


Please email your recipe to and include your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, name of recipe, separate ingredient lists for frosting and cupcake batter and complete preparation/baking directions.

Just like our own fine-tuned cupcake recipes, we will not disclose the contents of any recipes that are sent to us, including the winning recipe.
