The “war” included four cupcake bakers vying for a chance to showcase their confections at a VIP party for the internet sensation FunnyOrDie.com. We made a banana cake with parsley bits and also included figs soaked in rich red wine. A smooth layer of cream cheese frosting infused with Gouda cheese topped each cupcake, garnished with a light sprinkling of cheese puffs.
Though we were eliminated in the first round, Jacky and I still have grins plastered on our faces solely from the flattery of being selected to participate on a Food Network television show! Who knew being asked to bake with ingredient choices like: banana, hot dog, spray cheese, Gouda, Fluffernutter, rhubarb, and cheese puffs could be so exhilarating. Talk about funny or die!
It was an amazing experience – and that’s no joke!
