  1. First of all, the cupcake obsession is now passe...enough already!  Cupcake Wars and Sweet Genius and Sugar Dome have got to be the most boring programs ever produced.  Let me see REAL food any day of the week over this sugar fascination.  And PLEASE Food Network, QUIT making us wait for the REAL shows until after you "stick us" with this crap.

  2. ^^This, time a thousand.

  3. I miss the old school food network challenges with cake artists... i know they have sugar dome but i find that to be a train wreck at times and its not the same... yeah cupcakes are alright... but this show is tired... but it did shine light on some cupcake places that exist in Santa Barbara (like Crush Cakes owned by that woman whos made it to the final round 3 times and lost all 3) but really i agree cupcake wars is getting boring...
