Love that program!!  But....oops...missed last night's broadcast; but it is repeated on Tuesday.  I'll be sure to watch it then.....'course I know who will be winning this time.  About a year ago, one of the winners was from Sylvania, OH.---"CAKE IN A CUP".   I have been to that shop several times!  DELICIOUS!!! BUT EXPENSIVE!!!  Not an everyday treat, for sure!  Some of those recipes can be found on www.foodnetwork.com (or something like that, at least).  My daughter gets them for me....my computer is too slow for that.  I bake a lot of cupcakes.  Whenever I go to the above mentioned bakery, I beg them for hints.  They are very accommodating and very friendly.  I just wish I could do as well as they do!

Go to www.foodnetwork.com and search for Cupcakes.  Recipes for 522 cupcakes will magically appear!!
That should keep a few of us busy for quite some time!!

We also had a representative from our town in Southern California on that show recently. I wasn't aware of the show until our local paper featured this bakery. Fortunately (or not?) my gang doesn't care for cupcakes, so I don't seek out recipes for them. ;-))

The exciting thing about Nicole winning Cupcake Wars is that New Bern, NC is a teeny tiny town of about 25,000 people!   Recipes can be found at www.foodnetwork.com.

I only occasionally make cupcakes.  One of my favorites is Black Bottom Cupcakes.  I've noticed cupcakes in the stores now have about a 2 inch high glob of frosting on them.  Seems like there's more frosting than cake.  Not my favorite.  Haven't heard of Cupcake Wars, but nice for a small town to get the publicity.

Congrats to her and the town(getting the publicity at least).  I've never heard of the show.  But then I don't watch TV except for an occasional football game lol.

I think that is wonderful.  Great for the business and the town too.  "Free" advertising is always a plus.
