In the end, library wins Cupcake Wars


The Pine River Library came out the winner after hosting its first Cupcake Wars on Saturday, Aug. 3, at The Warehouse in Pine River.

The event raised about $500 for the library to use toward computer updates.

A dozen teams baked fancy and themed cupcakes, and decorated their tables. Members of the public then bought tickets to taste cupcakes, and voted for their favorite cupcakes and best decorated table.
