Cupcake Wars

Did anyone watch the "sneak peek" of Cupcake Wars on Sunday night at 10pm after Next Food Network Star? We did. It reminded me a lot of Chopped, but with cupcakes and less-bitchy judges.

I'm not all that into the competitive baking shows. For the most part, they seem like manufactured drama. Like the part on those Food Network Challenges when the teetering 4' high cake has to be moved 6 feet from the work table to a presentation table. Seems like the height requirement and the moving is all done so we can see some cake-on-floor action. We even got to see some cupcake-on-floor action in the preview episode. And you know there's gonna be tears in the future. Personally, I'd like to see a food fight - cupcakes make the perfect projectiles.

The show premieres tonight at 9/8c. Will you be watching? I'm on the fence.


Cupcake insanity!
