“This is an exciting event and the first of its kind featuring the baking talent from across the Inland Empire,” said Su Pak, Founder of IEShineOn.com. “We currently have nothing like it that promotes the art of cupcakes, which are very popular with families throughout the region. And it’s for very worthwhile causes. The buzz has started and we’re expecting over 2,000 to attend. I’m also especially excited about the live entertainment and vendors we’ll also be showcasing that day.”
