GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Saturday, people got a chance to decide which cupcake they think is the best in Mahoning Valley.

Bakers were categorized as Professional, Amateur and Children.

The youngest baker this year was 8 years old.

All proceeds benefit the Montessori School of Mahoning Valley.

Event Chair Kelli McLaughlin has two kids who go there and believes this a nice way to give back to the community.

“This opportunity kind of opened up, and this is something where I can give back to a school that has made such a huge impact on not just my kids but my whole family,” she said.

There’s other honorable mention awards, including “Most Creative Flavor Combination,” “Most Eye-Catching,” “Most Unique Display,” and “Chocolatiest Cupcake.”
