Our Friends at Cupcake have asked us to share their exciting news:
Kevin VanDeraa of Cupcake bakery Minneapolis competes with fifteen previous winning bakers in first ever Cupcake Wars Championship series airing throughout the month of May on the Food Network!
After winning Cupcake Wars’ Yo Gabba Gabba- themed episode on April 15th, local café and bakery Cupcake, was invited back to compete on the national Cupcake Wars’ Cupcake Champions series.
The top sixteen winning bakers from previous episodes compete, four baking teams at a time, all vying to be the first Cupcake Champion, and take home the $50,000 prize. The series finale is scheduled to air on June 10th. Our championship episode has a Glee theme, and the cupcakes will be available for sale in the bakery following the air date.
This will mark Cupcake’s third appearance on Cupcake Wars. Last summer was Kevin’s first opportunity to represent Cupcake on the show, which had a Bollywood theme, and placed second. Second time’s the charm, and Cupcake took home first place on the most recent Yo Gabba Gabba episode.
Cupcake has been serving gourmet cupcakes and café food since 2004.
