Contest is open to full or part-time Rider students enrolled during the 2023 Spring semester. Please note: this is a sweet contest. No savory dishes will be accepted.

Examples include: frosting, ganache, fondant, glaze, whipped cream, other sweet or savory sauces, confectionary items and decorated however you want. Fillings are encouraged. No peanuts, tree nuts or coconuts, please.
Recipes will be judged on recipe originality, creativity, visual and crowd appeal; and if the recipe reflects the theme of this year’s contest successfully.
Judges will select three qualifying recipes and three alternates recipes from the many student submissions compiled during the entry period listed above.
Qualifying students will have the opportunity to compete alone, with a member of their family, or if no relative is available, an on- or off-campus friend, at the Dessert Wars: Cupcake Fights Bake-Off & Finale Tuesday, March 7, 2023 from 5 to 7 p.m. at one of three culinary stations at Daly Dining Hall.
Entrants must be present and be able to prep, cook and serve their recipe, starting between 1 and 2 p.m, the day of the bake-off/finale to be eligible for all prizes. No contestant substitutions will be permitted.
If you’re selected as one of our top three bakers, you must meet with the executive chef at Daly’s prior to the finale and be kitchen ready. Please wear proper baking attire and footwear, including pants and close-toe shoes, preferably sneakers or other non-slip footwear.
In the event a qualifying student chef can’t compete in the Dessert Wars: Cupcake Fights Bake-Off and Finale an alternate student chef will be chosen from the list of alternates. Gourmet Dining, LLC will be on-hand to assist each student chef in the preparation of his/her qualifying recipe and to insure both the student and the university are compliant with all Lawrence Township Board of Health codes.
