(Newser) – With just $75, an essay, and a cupcake recipe, you could win a Vermont bakery. Vermont Public Radio reports that those interested in owning the Mix Cupcakerie and Kitchen in Waitsfield have to write about why they want it and submit the essay along with an idea for a cupcake recipe and $75 entry fee. Carole Keleher says she has to leave soon because her partner got a job out of state. She's also raising money online to cover equipment costs. No idea how to run a bakery? Well, Keleher says she's offering 80 hours of free training to the prospective business owner. (Or you could try to win a goat farm or a historic inn.)
