Winners of Cupcake Challenge announced

SusieCakes' Red Velvet cupcake, winner of Best Traditional cupcake at the Nesquik Cupcake Challenge

The results of Sunday's Nesquik Cupcake Challenge, in which 34 cupcakes competed for sweet supremacy, were announced early this morning. It wasn't a sweep for any bakery, but Sugar Jones, last year's winner for best original cupcake, made an impression, winning three top prizes for two different cupcakes. SusieCakes' red velvet cupcake won best traditional cupcake while Polkatots' dulce de leche won best original cupcake and best overall cupcake. [Click here for a photo gallery of all the entrants.]
