Berries, princess tiaras, margarita cupcakes and more! On Friday the 13th in May, Mariam Chammout went to a fashion show that held a cupcake contest. There were three contestants and Mariam was one of them. She made cupcakes the day before the contest and tried her best to perfect each one. When she was finished, they looked elegant and delectable.
“I got the idea for my cupcakes by looking at pictures on the Internet and in a cookbook,” said Mariam. “I made the cupcakes for a fashion show and I was contestant #2 and there were 2 other contestants. “The rules for the contest were that no one is supposed to know what cupcakes are yours and I got interested in baking because I enjoy it and it relaxes me because I am in my own little world.
“I felt excited and happy knowing that I won between two people and I was glad all my hard work paid off,” said Mariam. She won three kinds of cupcake pans and one kit to make a giant cupcake.
