CUPCAKE CHALRIE'S Says THANKS



Hey everyone, so sorry I didn't post yesterday but it was busy. I want to thank all of you who supported Mike by watching the Cupcake Wars on June 29th. He was great and entertained us right up until the last minute of the show....then&^&*$^%^# Well you all know what happened but I must say I'd rather have my son be a "nice cupcake maker" than a cupcake maker who puts cigarette tobacco in their cupcakes. I may stand alone on this but what were they thinking when they voted those cupcakes to win at Ace Of Cakes 100 episode party?
AREN'T THESE MORE APPEALING


Enjoy this bitty clip from their viewing party the other night, I wish you all could have been with us, you have been so sweet with your affection over this past week! Enjoy the clip!

"We all know who the real winner is. I saw the chefs show after the cupcake wars and they picked a chef to win that was in no way better than the other. The shw is a scam to me and I won't watch it again."

Sara C. said...

Of course! Was a heartbreaking defeat. Was convinced through out the entire episode that he had it in the bag! To have the final decision based on the "edge" of presenation is unfortunate and almost unfair. He handled it quite well. Was nice to see him as it has been years since I laid eyes on him - what a handsome and charismatic character. Both he, you and Cupcake Charlies should be proud!

Julie and Rob said...

"Rob and I just watched as I was flying last night. Although we knew the outcome before watching we still watched with baited breath. Mike and Penny were FANTASTIC! What an honor to even get picked to be on the show. Keep up the great work!"

Chuck and Cindy said...

"donna, mike so deserved to win. Cindy and I both thought his whole display and cupcakes were better then hers."

David Beals said...

"You all have every right to be very proud. I think everyone in the family was watching it with held breath and I was very impressed. I don't think Mike has anything to hang his head over, he did a fantastic job and his cupcakes were far superior."

College degree, albeit expensive, irrelevant. His skill, charm and talents are genetic. His confidence and self esteem, well that's just loving and outstanding parenting.
I can't count the number of bafoons with college and advanced degrees.
CUTE!!! OMG CUTE!!!!! I kept picturing his little tow head and gorgeous blue eyes that consumed his entire face. And there he was, all grown up pulling out all his God given gifts.
They totally won, maybe not on the show, but they won!!!!
I may apply for a job! HA!"

I was so disappointed in the judges. But Mike was wonderful and is still the winner in my book. "

Angie and Ed said...

"Can we order some to be sent to Arizona?! He did great :)"

Anna Van Oel said...

"I want the peanut butter ones!"

Angie said...

We can't believe he lost - he deserved to win. Tell him he had our vote and we would like to order a few dozen cupcakes because now we're starving! He did a great job, you should all be proud :)"

I'm becoming a real dis-believer in the reality type programs. I watch a bit of HGTV, and case in point was last year's Design Star. I'll never watch it again, and the Food Network went down a notch in my respect book as well. Your Charlie is so much fun! He's a winner in our books, and this will still prove to help build his business! And what fun, to be on TV!!! Not very many of us can put that on our bio's!!! Hugs! grrrrrr...(don't mind that - it's my tummy growling)!

my husband and i watched and both agreed that cupcake charlies did a far better job! couldnt believe they choose the cigarette cupckes! in the end, even though they didnt win, i think they came off as a great cupcake shop and i hope thye get a lot of business. judges loved the taste, wish they were local to me, i would have loved to come and eat some!

Congrats to Cupcake Charlies for their performance in the June 29th episode of Cupcake Wars. I am not sure what the judges were looking for or looking at but they clearly were looking at a different competition than I was.
You guys showed imagination and creativity far superior than your competition not to mention that the judges themselves said you product was by far the best tasting and most appealing in the competition. Keep up the good work and keep producing those terrific cupcakes.

JANA A said...

OH MY GOD HE SHOULD HAVE WON!!! That was crap. I was screaming at my TV. The final round should have included taste as that other girl would have definately lost! Mike's final presentation had so much detail and thought. I was really bummed. I am sure that he will get so much business regardless.

He did a great job and should be proud regardless. Wow he looks so much like Steve now! Well take care and glad you had a nice party to celebrate.

Great job on the show. They had my vote all the way! Go Cupcake Charlies!!!

Inkerbelle said...

Although, I only caught the last few minutes of the show, I thought it was clear who should have been the winner! What a shocker when that woman won. Too bad, but Mike will do well, I am sure!

My mother and I watched Cupcake Wars last night and were very disappointed that you did not win. We thought overall, you had the most creativity with your cupcakes and your display was much more professional and pleasing to look at. Since we live near Gilbert, AZ we visited the sisters who won the show. Don't know why. Anyways, the place was very hot inside (not good in AZ) and the sisters didn't even acknowledge customers coming into the place. As far as the cupcakes...very disappointed they were 3/4 frosting and very little cake.
Do you ship to Arizona because we would love to order some from you.

Sorry to hear he didn't win Donna but from reading the comments, your son is still a winner. I'm in Australia so didn't see the tv show.

can2rus said...

Oh my goodness! That sure looked like he had it in the bag! My daughter and I watched together and were thinking, "Well, that's no contest!" His display was awesome and his cupcakes looked so amazing!!!! We were so disappointed!

Belinda said...

He was robbed! I can't believe they chose her display over his, it was a disaster. His cupcakes sounded and looked amazing. I only wished I could have a taste!

He so deserved to win

Nancy Riley said...

THAT is so cool, Donna! You must be so proud! He got MY vote!

Regina Cornelius regcorn@zoominternet.net said...

i wasn't able to watch it the night it was aired, but i taped it and watched it the next day.....all rooting for michael aside....i was appauled that they kept someone that put cigarrette tobacco in cupcakes!!!!! let alone - pick her as the winner of the show!!! i was like what the $&@%????
michael was definitely the winner - his display was awesome and his cup cakes looked awesome!!

Pam said...

I was pulling for him! He handled himself with such class and grace. Plus, his cupcakes were CLEARLY better. I think he should get his own show! I would watch!

Debbie Pamment said...

Sounds like he did himself proud - and not being chosen the winner by a few people in this comp doesn't mean he isn't a WINNER to soo many other people!
xXx

Jean McKenzie said...

What a shame your son was pipped at the post Donna. But those cupcakes look winners to me and I bet they tasted yummy too! You must be very proud of him.

Jeanne Nielsen said...

I agree! I wouldn't have voted that to be okay either! Those two girls got by each time by the skin of their teeth! I was so impressed with him! He had my vote the whole time, even if I wasn't already a Cupcake Charlie's fan!!!!

Sylvia said...

Happy 4th Donna, So sorry about the win! You are right about the tobacco! Just goes to show where money talks! But, You are able to get Good cupcakes! and I am sure that the people who eat them are very appreciative!

Jen said...

This just proves my idea that these "reality shows" are not the slightest bit realistic. It was pretty clear throughout the whole show that Mike's cupcakes were the best and to have the winning outcome based on the final presentation is just ridiculous. It's a cupcake show. It should be about the cupcakes for heaven's sake! I don't know who that Duff guy is, or why he chose the chick with the angry eyebrows, but I know where to get the best cupcakes! Congratulations to everyone!!

Kathie said...

I watched that episode. He was ROBBED!! His cupcakes were INCREDIBLE!! Tobacco cupcakes..really??!! Never have been a huge fan of Duff. He probably just wanted some cute girls at his party!! (not that Mike isn't cute, but he ain't no busty blonde chick!) :)

Brooke S said...

OH MY HECK!!!! I totally watched this show... I was totally impressed with him... How in the heck he thinks so fast on his feet WOWERS!!! He sure had to compete with some weird girls... And the tobacco that was just goose. WE were SOOO rooting for him.. The whole family was just stunned when he didn't win... The sugar paper was sure genius to have on hand...
WAY TO GO Mike you were AMAZING... I would love to eat one of your amazing creating some day.. What an honor that would be....
