Locally grown, owned and operated, The Sweet Tooth Cupcakery will be featured on the hit show "Cupcake Wars" on the Food Network, Sunday, October 14 at 7 p.m.  "Cupcake Wars"  launches its seventh season this October and regularly pulls two million national viewers each week.   

Touted as "Food Network's tastiest competition yet!", four of the top bakers in the country battle weekly in three elimination challenges until only one decorator remains. The winning baker receives $10,000 and the opportunity to showcase their confections at the winning gig.  

Avid promoters and users of the Grow Blue Springs initiative through the Blue Springs EDC, Amy and Trevor are excited about the national exposure this brings their hometown, Blue Springs. Founded in 2010, The Sweet Tooth opened its commercial location in January 2012 at 3100 D South 7 Highway. Focused on using "the best ingredients available," their passion for baking now offers more than 40 unique cupcake flavors, seven cookie flavors and cheesecakes. BSEDC is excited to see one of our own calling attention to our great city, Blue Springs! 

To compete in this grueling battle, The Sweet Tooth beat hundreds of  contestants. Owner Amy Goodwin said, "The entire process was intense, there was nothing we could do to prepare ourselves for The Cupcake Wars experience! We had to bake cupcakes for expert judges, in an unfamiliar kitchen, with crew members and producers running around, cameras in your face, surprise ingredients and time quickly ticking away."

The Sweet Tooth is hosting a watch party at Skylight Restaurant & Bar in Blue Springs on October 14. Tickets are on sale for $5 each, with half the ticket price being donated to Blue Springs Education Foundation. Doors open at 5 p.m. with the show airing at 7 p.m. Amy and Trevor Goodwin will be available for a question and answer session after the show. To obtain more information about the watch party, or to purchase tickets,  visit The Sweet Tooth Cupcakery's website.

Congratulations, Amy and Trevor!
