On the surface, baking seems like a simple process. You mix the ingredients together, put them into the oven and let them bake. But is there something more than the purely physical act of mixing ingredients and putting them in the oven?
Cupcake Wars premiered on Food Network in 2009. Hosted first by Justin Willman and then by Jonathan Bennett, the contestants are put through their paces as they are challenged to create a variety of cupcakes. The winner of each episode wins $10,000 and the opportunity to showcase their work at a related event.
I like Cupcake Wars. I like it because the contestants are not just baking for baking’s sake. They love to bake and it shows in their work. I also like the show because it’s an engaging program, the audience is rooting for the contestants and trying to figure out along the way who will win.
I recommend it.
