It is until it isn’t

I just watched an episode when one woman yelled at her teammate (sister) saying you idiot !! I felt they should have been booted then but they didn’t make it past stage one with a pizza cupcake

Be kind

I love watching cupcake wars but I think Candace and Florian are a little cold in their critiques. I love cupcakes like everyone else but these are cupcakes. 10G is really not that much. If this was a 50K pot than maybe critiques like that would be necessary. My most unfavorite moment was when Florian purposefully dropped a cupcake on a plate to show he didnt like the cupcake and its density. Be nice
