Veg Bakery Wins Cupcake Wars

Vegan bakery Sticky Fingers has claimed its second victory on Food Network's show Cupcake Wars.

Last weekend, Washington, DC-based vegan bakery Sticky Fingers took home its second winning title on a special “All-Stars” edition of the popular Food Network show Cupcake Wars. The episode’s challenge was based on the American Music Awards, and the bakery’s founder Doron Petersan and head baker Jenny Webb beat out traditional-baker competitors with cupcake flavors such as Rolling Stones Brown Sugar (a brown-sugar cupcake with rum frosting and brown-sugar brittle) and Salt-n-Peppa (a chocolate-bourbon cupcake with smoked pepper, salted caramel, vanilla frosting, and fondant “headphones”). Petersan, who recently described the bakery’s competitive strategy as “crave and conquer,” is releasing a cookbook of the bakery’s recipes next month.
