Thoughts on Cupcake Wars©….

As a self-proclaimed food television junkie and novice cupcake baker, it’s no shocker that I’ve tuned into the FoodNetwork’s latest show Cupcake Wars©. Per their site:

“Each week on Cupcake Wars, four of the country’s top cupcake bakers face off in three elimination challenges until only one decorator remains. The sweet prize: $10,000 and the opportunity to showcase their cupcakes at the winning gig.”

Conceptually, I was super excited to catch the premiere and couldn’t wait to be inspired by cupcakers around the country. But alas, after each episode I’m left with a “meh” feeling. I neither love it or dislike it…..all I know is that I kind of expected more. This isn’t to say that the challenges are a piece of cake (or “cupcake” in this case) because I know I sure as heck couldn’t bake and frost cupcakes within 45 minutes (or make a 1,000 in 3 hours for that matter!). Yet despite all of it, I’ve been a bit underwhelmed. Who knows….maybe it’s the “Simon Cowell” approach to judging that Chef Florian Bellanger is taking or the random hosting by Justin Willman that makes me kind of cringe.

Still, at the end of the day, I’d like to give big kudos to each of the contestants. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep tuning in.

So until next time Friends, this is Food Television Junkie signing off. 🙂
