Soul Cups Cupcake owner Celeste Alleyne was hand-picked from thousands of applicants to join the second season of the successful Food Network Show: Cupcake Wars. The show episode, entitled Walk of Fame, will air on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.
“To learn how this cupcake battle is fought, you must watch the show. I’m sworn to secrecy and can’t share any details,” says Celeste. “But I can promise you that this is one war you won’t want to miss. I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. And I give it my all– a one, two, punch, knock you out in three-a fight to make the best and most creative cupcakes that my customers always crave!”
Celeste featured her special treats at the Annual Soul Cups Cupcakes Holiday sale and celebration at Say Cheese Café, 2800 Hyperion Avenue, in Silverlake, on Sunday, December 12. Visitors were able to sample her seasonal favorites such as Peppermint Stick, The Great Pumpkin Spice and Lemon Snowdrops. Enjoy “Baby Dot” mini cupcake samples, order cupcakes for friends and family. Have a glass of cider and spread some Christmas, Hanukah, and Kwanza cheer.
