Cupcakes — perfect bite of cake and icing in a wrapper. The perfect bite might just win you $50.

The Herald-Mail is seeking entries to its first cupcake contest.

Entries will only be accepted 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, April 18, at The Herald-Mail building, 100 Summit Ave., Hagerstown.

Winning contestants must be available Wednesday, April 20, or Thursday, April 21.

Cupcakes will be judged on taste, appearance, originality and overall quality.

Entries should be six of the same cupcakes — enough for the judges to sample.

All decorations must be edible.

Include with the entry, a copy of the cupcake recipe on a 3-inch-by-5-inch index card that also has your name, hometown and daytime and evening phone numbers.

Also, tell us the source of the recipe — whether it was an original creation or family recipe, or if it came from a cookbook, magazine or a website.

To be eligible, contestants must live in Washington or Frederick counties in Maryland; Franklin or Fulton counties in Pennsylvania; or Berkeley, Jefferson or Morgan counties in West Virginia.

Herald-Mail employees and their relatives are not eligible to win.
