Who knew that the grade school kids had it right all along. Cupcakes are good—just the right amount of cake and just a little too much frosting.
I watch the Cupcake Wars on the Food Network once in a while. It is interesting to see the unusual ingredients. Recently, one man used a power drink in his cupcake. The judges didn’t like it and he got eliminated. They seem to like coffee, liquors and double and triple chocolate and even bacon.

Actually, Topeka was represented on the Cupcake Wars back in the spring of 2010 by Allyson Fiander of billy vanilly. She only made it through the first round, but said in an interview that it was still great exposure for her business.
I watched the local grandkids for a little while this evening. When Kim got home, she had six cup cakes from billy vanilly. Did they ever look good. I got to choose. Here it is.
