Another team of Utah bakers will compete on the popular Food Network show "Cupcake Wars."
Leslie Fiet, owner of Mini’s Cupcakes in Salt Lake City, along with her assistant Stephanie Deer, are one of four teams who will participate in the "Cheerleader" episode on Sunday, Nov. 11. The winner of the culinary competition gets $10,000 and a chance to serve their cupcakes at a huge celebration honoring the country’s best cheerleaders.
Fiet is inviting customers to a special viewing party on Sunday, at Mini’s, 14 East 800 South Salt Lake City. The party starts at 5:30 p.m. and the show airs at 6 p.m. Guests can sample the cupcakes featured on the show, which was taped in July. Reservation required by calling 801-363-0608.
Utah has a winning record on "Cupcake Wars."
In September, Janell Brown, owner of the One Sweet Slice bakery in South Jordan, was the winner of the Star Wars episode, earning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. Here cupcake creations were part of the grand reopening of Disney Star Tour’s ride.
And in April, Meagan Faulkner-Brown of The Sweet Tooth Fairy Bakery won the contest. Her creations were featured at the cast party for the premiere of the national tour of "Rock of Ages" in Los Angeles.
