Kyra Bussanich of Kyra’s Bake Shop is once again competing on an all-new Cupcake Wars. The Food Network describes this as the “Ultimate Showdown – Get ready for a cupcakebattle royale as four of the best Cupcake Wars bakers of all time face off in a one-of-a-kind baking adventure” – trying to become the ONLY 4-time winner of that competition – and still the only Gluten-free winner ever, competing against “regular” bakers. First episode – next Monday, May 2 – click here for showing deets.
I got a chance to catch up with her and ask a few questions. I can’t wait for the show!!
Q: We hear that you’re going to be on Cupcake Wars once again. What made you decide to go back?
A: I am grateful to Cupcake Wars for pushing our creative boundaries. Each time we compete on the show, it spurs us to think beyond flavor combinations we’ve ever attempted before, and I just love what happened when all the barriers come down and we can dream big!
Q: How many times have you been on the show? How many times have you won?
A: This will be our 6th appearance. Out of our previous 5 appearances, we’ve won 3 times, and been the runners up twice. NO ONE has won more than 3 times, so we will be attempting to break the record on Monday May 2nd.
A: I AM baking all gluten-free, and competing against “regular” bakers, just like the previous episodes. However, this time, all of us have won Cupcake Wars in the past, so we are all well-experienced, which ups the competition.
Q: Can you give us a hint as to how you did?
A: Ahh, you’ll just have to tune in and watch! 😉
