Recap: Sticky Fingers Cupcake Wars Viewing Party

Chuck Berry and Salt-N-Peppa

Last Sunday, we celebrated MLK weekend by attending a viewing party of Cupcake Wars All Stars at Bourbon in Adams Morgan. Our favorite vegan cupcake shop, Sticky Fingers Sweets and Eats won The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars back in March of 2011 which got them a slot in the All Star Competition. This time around founder Doron Petersan and head baker Jenny Webb were not only defending their title, but also competing to provide their cupcakes for a star studded after party for the AMA’s!
Spoiler Alert: THEY WON!!!

To say Bourbon was crowded would be an understatement. The Sticky Finger’s extended family of staff, friends, family and fans were cheering wildly every time Doron or Jenny’s familiar faces graced the screen. Heckling was also encouraged to support the Sticky Finger’s Team. With all the laughing and cheering, you would have thought it was a part super bowl party, part comedy show.  During the episode they passed around the delicious cupcakes that were featured on the show: 
  • Rolling Stones Brown Sugar:  Brown sugar cupcake, rum frosting topped with brown sugar brittle
  • Man in Black Johnny Cashew:  Black cocoa cupcake, black cocoa dark chocolate frosting topped with dark chocolate cashew candy
  • Salt-n-Peppa Inspired:  Chocolate bourbon smoked pepper cupcake, salted caramel and vanilla bean frosting topped with fondant candy headphones
  • Chuck Berry Inspired:  Orange cupcake with blueberry cinnamon filling, raspberry frosting topped with a sparkly red fondant guitar
You can purchase the cupcake wars winning pack in the bakery, or on the website through February 1st.  Congratulations to Doron, Jenny and the Sticky Finger’s Team!
