The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. (with V.I.P. admission at 11 a.m.) at the newly-revamped Riverside Convention Center, 3637 Fifth St.
The organizers, I.E. Shine On, note that they have learned much from last year’s event and things should run a lot more smoothly this year.
In addition to cupcake sampling, the event will include cake decoration demos by the California Cake Decorations and Supply Company, a kids’ zone provided by Seeking Sitters Inland Empire, a free photo booth hosted by Shutter Cubby, free massages, live entertainment, giveaways, crafts and shopping.
Through March 31, general admission tickets are $15 and V.I.P. tickets are $30. After that date, the tickets go up to $25 and $35, respectively.
Also, after March 31, special four-packs of group tickets will be available: General admission for four will be $85, while V.I.P. admission for four will be $125.
General admission tickets include six tasting tickets, while V.I.P. tickets include seven tasting tickets and a goodie bag filled with local discounts and a T-shirt, plus the aforementioned early admission.
