Cupcake available at Buffalo Wine & Chocolate Festival 

Gino's Italian Bakery of Buffalo is creating signature cannoli cupcakes for The Summit Federal Credit Union Wine & Chocolate Festival in Buffalo.

The event, to be held Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Adam's Mark Hotel downtown, features numerous regional wine and chocolate vendors as well as other local businesses. Two sessions of the festival will be offered: 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Summit signature cupcakes will be available free to eventgoers who visit Gino's festival booth.

Proceeds from the festival benefit the Buffalo Niagara American Heart Association. The event ties into the upcoming American Heart Month as well as Valentine's Day, and will be red (and heart) themed. Accordingly, each signature cupcake has a red wrapper and is topped with a red maraschino cherry.

"As both a woman and business owner, I am proud to support the American Heart Association," said Pam DiPalma, owner of Gino's. "Heart disease in women has made a dramatic increase in recent years. We at Gino's Italian Bakery are committed to helping in the fight against heart disease, as it has affected family members, friends and neighbors."

 "The Summit is dedicated to serving our members and their communities," said Cheryl Pohlman, vice president of marketing and community relations. "This event showcases some of the delectable offerings of our region, so we wanted a local bakery to create our signature cupcake."

Festival tickets, which are $25 (and $10 for designated driver tickets), are on sale now at all Buffalo-area Wegmans and at wineandchocolatefestivals.com/events/buffalo.
