Sweet TV: USO Gala Serves as Backdrop for Food Network’s ‘Cupcake Wars’ Episode

Friday, June 29, 2012

The other “sweet science” will be on display this Sunday night when the USO will be the focal point of an episode of Food Network’s reality program “Cupcake Wars.” 

The show, named "Saluting the USO," will air at 8 p.m. EST as competitors will be battling for sugary supremacy with a shot at having their confections featured during last October’s USO Gala in Washington, D.C.

The format for “Cupcake Wars” pits four bakers in three elimination challenges until only one decorator emerges victorious. The winner receives $10,000 and the honor of having his or her creation featured at a special event.

At least 15 USO Centers are planning “watch parties” for Sunday and for DVR aficionados, the show will be replayed on Tuesday, July 2 at 3 a.m. EST and on Wednesday, July 3 at 8 p.m. EST. Check your local listings and cable provider for the Food Network channel location in your area.
