Cupcakes is a feel-good musical comedy about a group of neighbors who get together to watch Universong, a fictional take-off on a Eurovision contest. They are less than impressed by the official Israeli entry. Believing they can do better, and as a diversion from their otherwise boring and stressed-out lives, the friends create a song and record it on one of their cell phones. Unexpectedly, it becomes Israel's entry for the contest. The film is a celebration of music, friendship, love and free spirit. Cupcakes was the winner, Audience Award for Best Comedy, at the 2014 Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival.
