Now that December is under way, lots of people are starting to get stressed out preparing for Christmas.
As a break from all the tension, Food Network's competitive reality series "Cupcake Wars" is offering up a sweet and funny treat on Saturday, Dec. 7, with an episode called "Comedy Cupcakes."
Four bakers compete to create the perfect confection for the celebrity-studded VIP party for Variety magazine's Power of Comedy event. The regular judges -- Sprinkles Cupcakes owner Candace Nelson and pastry chef Florian Bellanger -- are back, with celebrity publicist Jennifer Styles as guest judge.
As always, comedian/magician Justin Willman is host, and he reports that the bakers will be facing some challenges as the show tries to toss some jokes into the mix of ingredients.
"In Round One," Willman tells Zap2it, "just to give you a sense, we gave them foods that are inherently funny, like parsnips, seltzer water and kumquats. »
