All-Vegan Cupcake Wars Episode

On Sunday, four bakers will compete in the first entirely vegan Cupcake Wars episode on Food Network.

At 8pm Eastern and Pacific times on March 4, Food Network’s popular competitive baking series Cupcake Wars will air its first-ever all-vegan episode, putting four bakers head-to-head to devise dairy-free creations. Vegan bakers—including Chloe Coscarelli, C’est La V’s Kim Garr, and Sticky Fingers’ Doron Petersan—have previously appeared and taken home victories several times on the show, but Sunday’s episode will be the first time that all four competitors will be making vegan cupcakes. The contestants present their cupcakes as part of the opening day ceremonies at the Los Angeles Green Festival, which took place in November.
