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."

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.
