Cupcake War winner Kyra Bussanich will be the guest speaker at the March 13 luncheon meeting of the Lake Oswego Women’s Coalition.

The session begins at 11:45 a.m. at Oswego Lake Country Club.

She will speak on “When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Gluten-free Lemon Cakes.” She will tell how she turned her gluten intolerance into a successful baking career.

In May 2012 she was asked to rejoin 16 of the Food Network’s favorite competitors in a Cupcake Championship, in which she took second place. She will tell the behind-the-scenes ins and outs of the competitions.

Cost of the luncheon meeting is $19 for members and $21 for non-members. Membership is $10 for the calendar year. To make a reservation, call the Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce at 503-636-3634 by March 11.
