The Cupcake Eating Contest will be held Friday, August 14, at 7pm in front of the Bakery at 136 N. Old Woodward in downtown Birmingham. The winner will be the person that eats the most cupcakes in 8 minutes and will have bragging rights equal to the Famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Champion.

The Mayor of Birmingham will be on-hand as the official timekeeper. Last year, the winner ate 12 cupcakes in 8 minutes and they expect that number to be beaten this year. There will be free Cupcakes and a cash prize for the winner and runner-ups.
