Sweet Freedom Bakery Goes To War...CUPCAKE WARS That Is
The ladies of Philadelphia’s Sweet Freedom Bakery will be showing off their goodies. Tonight on Food Network’s CUPCAKE WARS the bakery’s co-owners will show off their skills against three other bakers. In the competition that pits cupcake against cupcake, the victor after three elimination challenges receives a $10,000 prize and is featured at the episode's main event.
Last season, LA-based Vegan Chef Chloe Coscarelli was one of eight grand prize winners. A major upset to the competition in episode three, she proved that vegans can bake a sweet cupcake too. Her Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake seduced the judges in the “Match Making Party” episode.
In season two, Allison Lubert and Heather Esposito will elevate the novelty a little higher. In a field of conventional bakers, Lubert and Esposito consider more than the aesthetic. Their cupcakes are not just vegan but allergen-free, meaning no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, corn, peanuts, or refined sugar.
Tonight’s episode is “Hard Rock,” with cupcakes being made for Hard Rock Cafe's Pinktober concert event. Coming up on Sweet Freedom Bakery's one year anniversary, joining the show’s winners' circle would surely be a huge triumph to take into the New Year.
Will they bake the judges happy? Find out tonight at 9pm on Food Network’s CUPCAKE WARS
To all things cupcake!
