Karen Levesque

Karen Levesque's weapon of choice is the Hydrangea Cupcake. This is a decadent, moist chocolate cake filled with a whipped dark chocolate ganache and topped with a fluffy Madagascar vanilla buttercream frosting. This cupcake is made from scratch using the best ingredients locally available. Check out her cupcake mastery at Sweet Creations by Karen.

Megan Scanio

Megan Scanio of Sugar Momma Cupcakes & Cake Pops has her eye on the guys with her Man Cave Man Cake...Beer, Bacon, and Chocolate - what more does a man need? This chocolate stout cupcake is filled with extra dark chocolate ganache and topped with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting, drizzles of rich caramel, and applewood smoked bacon. Teddy will be first in line for this little beauty.

Patti-Jo Swan is not surrendering with her Put the Lime in the Coconut cupcake.
It's a Coconut cupcake with creamy coconut-lime frosting topped with shredded coconut and candied lime peel. I can feel the summer breeze.

Shelli Shumway & Stephanie McKim of Lakes Region Cupcakes is representing the Lakes Region by adding the cuteness factor.
