Phillip Caramello a finalist on Sweet Genius, a Food Network Show and Lisa Lundin of
Just Desserts, Bridgewater will square off to claim the crown of most delicious cupcake. A showdown of these two master pastry chefs will kick off the grand opening of The Cupcake Shack on Sunday, March 4 from 1 until 3pm. The Cupcake Shack is located in the Independence Mall in Kingston.

The Cupcake Shack will play host to a cupcake taste-off that will allow the public to decide who bakes the best cupcake. Additionally, the event will feature cupcake decorating and mini cupcake tastings. The winner of the taste-off will get the opportunity to feature their cupcakes at “The Shack” which carries a variety of baked goods as well as Jim’s Organic Coffee.

The battle between Phillip Caramello, a renowned pastry chef who has worked at the Ritz-Carlton and will now show off his culinary genius on the Food Network show, Sweet Genius and Lisa Lundin, owner of Just Desserts, a local favorite, who’s flavors include white chocolate raspberry and key lime, is sure to whet our appetites and leave us craving for more.

Nestled inside The Book Shack, an expansive new value-driven bookstore, that brings books to life through storytelling, theatre, lectures and workshops, and features comedy shows, psychics and musical guests, accommodating up to 250 people, The Cupcake Shack will bring a new element to this already exciting venue. The Cupcake Shack will feature a party room that is available to be booked for everything from birthday parties to corporate team building functions.
