The Sweet Tooth Fairy bake shop, based in American Fork, became the first Utah company to win "Cupcake Wars," a culinary competition on The Food Network.

During Sunday night's episode, owner Megan Faulkner Brown and her lead baker, Hilary Cavanaugh, won $10,000. They also had their winning creations featured at the cast party for the premiere of the national tour of "Rock of Ages" in Los Angeles.

The Sweet Tooth Fairy team impressed judges with their first-round cranberry wine and brie cheesecake cupcake. In this initial round, participants were required to create a cupcake using a few selected "mystery ingredients" that a rock star might request in their dressing room. The Sweet Tooth Fairy team selected dark chocolate, cranberry juice, red wine, brie cheese and cashews.

The other cupcake flavors created during the episoe included Sweet Potato Pie, Creme Brulee and Nutella Crepe.

These cupcakes flavors will be available in Sweet Tooth Fairy stores over the next two months, with Cranberry Wine and Brie Cheesecake and Sweet Potato Pie featured throughout April, and Creme Brulee and Nutella Crepe debuting in May.

Twenty-five cents from the sale of each winning cupcake will be donated to the Safe to Talk Foundation and the war on bullying. In addition, customers can also meet and congratulate Faulkner Brown from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the following dates and locations.
