More exciting news! The very lovely Hilary Duff will be a judge in the Ottawa Cupcake Challenge next month as part of the annual ECO EXPO!

Well, we’ve all been following Hilary’s hunt for Ottawa’s perfect cupcake for a while now — sometimes only salivating *slightly.* But it turns out that LTOttawa and its readers aren’t the only ones watching! After the organizers of ECO EXPO contacted her recently about her tasty challenge, she was asked to serve as a judge for their 1st annual Ottawa Cupcake Challenge.

AND … she appeared yesterday on Daytime Ottawa, a Rogers Cable talk show, to talk about the event and her general love of cupcakes!

Check out her appearance here!

We’ll be telling you more about the ECO EXPO — a local food fair and health & wellness show — in the coming days, but mark on your calenders that it takes place on April 23-24 at the RA Centre, featuring about 100 local organizations and businesses.

For any bakers out there taking part in the challenge. Hilary described on the show what she wants out of a cupcake — and it’s pretty simple.

“I really look for the perfect proportion of cupcake to icing … I do sometimes make sort of cupcake sandwiches so I can get a bite of each.”

Local Tourist Ottawa will be at the ECO EXPO. Will you? Stop by for a treat or two!
