Never anticipated so much fun during the cupcake contest at the Horace Williams House along Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, NC! But, in fact, my daughter, Kempton, and I signed-up as volunteers working behind the scenes because we know the Preservation Society of Chapel Hill is tops as an organization to support. As members of the Chapel Hill Service League, the sign-up to volunteer was so well organized by the Chapel Hill Service League, it was easy to show-up, slip into our assigned tasks, and enjoy the evening. The annual cupcake competition was well-attended, in spite of the hurricane blowing-in from the east. Young and old attended the event to enjoy the lovely display of cupcakes, to sample the delicious treats, and/ or to enter a favorite cupcake in the competition. The entries came from a wide, wide range of bakers. There were four exquisite cupcake entries from the The Chocolate Door , owned by the sweet couple at 516 West Franklin Street. (I heard the Mayan chocolate treat at the Chocolate Door is fabulous, by the way.) But the endearing aspect of the cupcake competition is the fact that it’s for the young and old, inexperienced and experienced cupcake bakers, and newcomers integrating into the Chapel Hill mix of community pillars. Next year, come on out and enjoy the evening!
Chapel Hill real estate along Franklin Street is gorgeous and the annual Cupcake Festival is an opportunity to enjoy the Horace Williams House and grounds. Music under the tent, good food and drink, and a lovely experience along Franklin Street, make it a great introduction to the Preservation Society of Chapel Hill. PSCH Executive Director, Earnest Dollar, is one of the most eager-to-talk folks you can imagine and he’s a walking encyclopedia of history. Want to talk more? I’m always ready!
