With Valentine’s Day around the corner, you’re probably looking for something sweet to shower your sweetie with. Whether your Valentine is your husband/wife, child or even that sweet neighbor down the street… you can’t go wrong with cupcakes. These bite-sized, frosting-filled, mini cakes are the perfect gift to let your Valentine know… they make your heart go pitter patter.

If you’ve ever tried to make cupcakes at home… frosting them can be a pain if you’re trying to make them look like they do in the fancy cupcakeries. Fear not.. we got you covered.

On this week’s KitchenParty, we’re chatting with one of our favorite cupcake bakers – Annette Startbuck.  Annette took her passion for baking cupcakes and turned it into a business — launching her own cupcake shop called ‘Goodie Girls: a petite treat affair‘ in Glendale California and soon after won Cupcake Wars on The Food Network. We met Annette when she was a baker at Cupcake Camp LA, a charity baking event we produce every year.

Annette will will be sharing cupcake decorating tips and insight on what it was like winning Cupcake Wars.
