Meagan Faulkner-Brown, owner of Sweet Tooth Fairy bake shops, is no doubt still flying high after winning $10,000 earlier this month on "Cupcake Wars."
Now, the American Fork baker has a chance to win even more cash. Last week, she learned that her April 8 win made her eligible for the Food Network’s new "Cupcake Champions" competition.
The five-part series premiers Sunday, May 13. Each week, four previous "Cupcake Wars" winners will try to impress judges Candace Nelson (owner, Sprinkles Cupcakes) and Florian Bellanger (chef and co-owner, MadMac) for the chance to showcase their cupcakes at a winning gig.
Faulkner-Brown and her lead baker, Hilary Cavanaugh, will compete on the June 3 episode where bakers are asked to make treats for a party celebrating Disney and Pixar’s latest animated film, "Brave."
If the Sweet Tooth Fairy team wins, they will advance — along winners from the previous three episodes — to the title round on June 10 and compete for a chance at $50,000.
