Kevin VanDeraa, owner of beloved bake shop Cupcake, has more to be exited about than the impending conclusion of Central Corridor construction on University Avenue in front of his shop: having won the Yo-Gabba-Gabba-themed episode of the Food Network’s show Cupcake Wars on April 15, VanDeraa is now set to compete in the show’s “Cupcake Champions” series.
Each episode in the “Cupcake Champions” series will feature four champion cupcakers squaring (or, as it were, rounding) off in hopes of advancing to the final round. VanDeraa will compete on the episode to be broadcast at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. If he prevails, he’ll also appear in the finale episode to be broadcast on June 10. The grand champion will win a $50,000 prize.
In the meantime, VanDeraa’s wares are available for purchase seven days a week at his airy shop, which in 2012 celebrates eight years in business.
