The cupcake competition is a chapter event that encourages
individuals to create an original recipe, from scratch, that
incorporates a secret ingredient. This year's secret ingredient was
the entrant's choice of any fruits and vegetables. The event is
judged on the taste, texture, appearance, creativity of the cupcakes
as well as the quality and creativity of the display.

tomato puree as the secret ingredient. The cupcake was topped with a
butter cream icing.
