Cupcake Wars

I'm guessing you've all heard of Cupcake Wars, right? Well, if you haven't, it's a show on Food Network that puts cupcake bakers to the test by having them bake cupcakes that are reviewed by the judges. The contestants get eliminated one by one. The last baker standing is the winner.

The new season premieres tonight at 8 on Food Network. Don't be late!


Cupcake Wars was mostly my inspiration for this cupcake business. My mom and I started watching it a lot, and that's how I got into cupcakes. Yay Cupcake Wars! Planning on watching the new season premiere tonight!

We're drawing a bigger crowd!

Today two little bunnies showed up in our yard! Potential customers?

Please let there be crumbs in the grass...

Carrot cake? Clover cake? They're possibilities... but for our human audience, there's always good old chocolate.

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

Yesterday we made chocolate stout cupcakes for Dad (John)'s birthday.

They turned out GREAT! The cupcakes had nice little domes on them.

The cupcakes had chocolate ganache and white buttercream under John/Dad's request.

Billy was the first one to try them.

He licked off all of the frosting and then bit into it. He said that they were... and I quote... "yummy". I can't believe we impressed this top-notch food critic!

We couldn't fit enough candles on the cake to make Dad's age, so we just put one. (Sorry, Dad! You couldn't really put 10 either without setting the whole cupcake on fire!)

Time for Key Lime!

This time, we tried a sour cream cake.

They turned out way too sweet, but the tart lime curd made it work.

What is this, a cupcake horror movie? ;)
Kill the cupcake, why don't you.

This was our first time using this frosting tip- we loved it!

The finished product.

(By the way, we got our new camera. Like it?)

Today's question: What cupcake flavor should we bake next? Comment below!
