Cupcake Wars premier!

Cupcake Wars just premiered on the Food Network! I cuddled up with my dog, my husband and a small cupcake from Crumbs to watch this premier. The challenge was to create cupcakes and a display for a Sea World Birthday Bash! If creating 1,000 cupcakes in 2 hours wasn't hard enough...how about adding sea salt and seaweed to your cupcakes?!

So, I am curious, what did you think? Did you like the competition? Was the judgement too harsh? What did you think about the host? I would love to hear your opinions!

Congratulations to Lindsay Morton, owner of Dollhouse Bake Shoppe! I really think you nailed it!


  1. Just got a notification to this post and wanted to take a moment to say thank you for tuning in and for all of our fan's support! Happy baking!

  2. It was interesting...I'm not sure if I loved it or hated it. Will tune in again maybe it is something that will grow on ya - I don't think I like the Food Network Challenges at first either.

    Oh and judging - way to harsh - whats up with trying to have a Simon Cowell in every group of three judges?

    Congrats Lindsay!

  3. Rene, I agree about the judging. I think that some of it was way too harsh. I also thought that the time limits were very hard too! 1,000 cupcakes in 2 hours? How does the frosting not melt?
