Well, you can't write a blog about our town and not mentioned that Catasauqua was mentioned on something other than the news. Our own Rebecca Zukowski got to say Catasauqua, Pennsylvania on the Food Network show, Cupcake Wars. There was something surreal watching her and her assistant run out of her Front Street Store in the beginning of the show.
I have never watched Cupcake Wars before and I probably never will again. The first round the contestant were given weird combinations to use in the cupcakes, like pork bellies and figs, Salmon and caramel and Blondie's pick, pickles and peanut butter. She did well with what she was given and made it to the next round. Sadly though she did not make it to the final round because the judges felt that her cupcakes were not "decorated" enough. Who eats fondant decorations anyway.
I say congratulations Rebecca for making it to Cupcake Wars, and no I don't want to try a pickle peanut butter cupcake. By the way congrats for Michelle, who did win, I am glad she won over the guy, no one should be making cupcakes with pork bellies and liking it. And that's another day in Catasauqua.
