Flavor Cupcakery in Bel Air makes an appearance on Food Network's Cupcake Wars this Sunday (Dec. 4). To celebrate, the cupcake shop is hosting a viewing party at the Dark Horse Saloon in Bel Air from 7:30-9 p.m. that evening.
It will feature a "special surprise, taking Flavor Cupcakery to the next level," according to a press release. For transparency's sake, I should reveal that said release was accompanied by a cupcake that is now gone. (It was delicious.)
Flavor Cupcakery is owned by Shelley Stannard. The shop's lead pastry chef is Jason (no last name given). But if you watch the shop's audition video on its Facebook page, you'll find out that Jason learned to bake from his grandma and went to culinary school to become a pastry chef. He also studied in Europe, he said.
Sunday's party will include food and drink to order, cupcakes made by Flavor Cupcakery, holiday specialties, a meet and greet with Shelley and Jason, and a viewing of the show on a big-screen TV.
May the best cupcake win and may that cupcake be from Bel Air.
