Aurora Memorial Library recently conducted a "Build a Better Cupcake" contest for youths age 10 and older. Participants created a cupcake recipe of their own, or altered an existing one, to vie for prizes. Some of the participants, standing behind their creations, are, from left, Mason Kacmar, who made terrific tiramisu cupcakes; Reagan Kacmar, who made bacon-pancake cupcakes; and Hannah Lewis, who made chocolate chip cupcakes.
