Make Cupcakes Not War!

If I could be doing anything else in the world besides being an Insurance Agent right now, I would probably own my own Cupcake Bake Shop...and totally specialize in just making cupcakes! I Love love love making, decorating and eating..ha ha..cupcakes! I just wish I had more time in my schedule to bake..Last night on the Food Network they had the "Cupcake Challenge". I was pretty awesome! The guy I wanted to win didn't due to a technicality (his cupcake presentation didn't meet the required 3 feet in height). The judges really liked him too but he lost the $10,000.00 Grand Prize because he was 3 inches short.

This was one of the contestants that didn't win..her terracotta pot was made of cake..That was pretty cool.
This was the underwater coral scene I wanted to win. All the coral flowers are made of cupcakes which have been decorated to look like coral..I wish I had a better picture.
This was the winning entry, which was really really cool also! She has a dragon breathing down on the different pillars and instead of fire coming out of his mouth it was really cool flowers which were actually the top decorations of the cupcakes...

I love watching the Food Network Challenges..Do you? Which is your favorite?

Hey, I watched that show last night also! I think it is a rerun because I thought I remember watching it before.

The terra cotta flower pot was so original!

The grand prize winner, or the judges favorite (the guy short 3 inches, and lost out on $10k) reminds me of my brother, and my husband and my cousins story during the annual Saipan Fishing Derby, several years ago! They caught a 1,050 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin and brought it in to the weight station 30 minutes too late! There are numerous points to argue on why that fish was disqualified which also disqualified them from the $10k, but anyway, the food network show reminded me of that.. wierd huh, how certain things can spark your memory......

oh well......
CUPCAKES are fun!!! But the best part is EATING them!!! Yummy!

RBB, The contestants were given 6 hours to construct their pieces...not much time considering all the detailed work.

Cee, thanks for coming out of lurking! The picture of snow on the ground on your blog made me "oohh and ahhh"..I haven't seen real snow in yearsssss!

Para i Familiaku, I remember that story about your brother's fish...that was soo sad!
