Grand Prize Winner from the magazine's popular national recipe contest to appear on "The Early Show" on CBS
Millions of cupcakes will be baking in ovens coast to coast when Taste of Home's 3.5 million readers open their April/May 2007 issue. Winners of the magazine's national Cupcake Challenge recipe contest lead a sweet parade of handheld treats including a special online "Cupcake of the Week" newsletter.
The Grand Prize, selected from more than 1400 entries, went to Mary Bilyeu of Ann Arbor, Michigan for her Special Mocha Cupcakes. Mary will demonstrate how to bake her luscious confections—made with cocoa, coffee and a fluffy mocha frosting—alongside Taste of Home's editor-in-chief Catherine Cassidy on CBS's "The Early Show" on April 17, 2007.
"Our contests bring out the best in our readers and the passion they feel for their food," says Cassidy. "We get tens of thousands of contest entries every year and the home cooks who win are like our 'celebrities.' Their recipes get to be seen by millions of people like them in the magazine, online, and on TV on CBS."
To choose the cupcake prizewinners, the Taste of Home Test Kitchen staff made more than 700 cupcakes and 71 cups of frosting. They ranged from fruity and filled to iced and spiced, showcasing flavors including banana, maple, chocolate, lemon, pumpkin, peanut butter and gingerbread. Some of the cupcakes were topped with nuts or sprinkles, others with berries or even small cookies.
