Cupcake Wars pits Cupcake vs. Cupcake in Food Network's tastiest competition yet. Each episode, four of LA's top cupcake bakers will face off for a huge prize opportunity. There will be one major event up for grabs (like a movie premiere or a celebrity wedding) and based off of taste and presentation, only one will win the gig. We are about to put on our helmet, pick up our frosting gun and go to battle. The war is on!
