If you're looking for a traditional baker, bakery, bakery staff or baked goods, keep looking, because you won't find any of them at Sugar Daddy Cupcakes in Glendale, Ariz. Kory doesn't have any formal culinary training, but he has been baking since he was a young lad and he believes that, coupled with his competitive nature, is all that he needs to take home the grand prize. This testosterone-driven twosome employs an all-male staff to serve its tasty treats and they all believe that the Sugar Daddies have the turbo to take it all the way.

Sisters Evelyn and Lorena founded 2 Girls & a Cupcake after a joke on MySpace resulted in 30 orders for Valentine's Day. They got their business going after much tasty trial and error and are now proud to offer more than 100 flavors of cupcakes, with their most popular being the Oye Como Va. This delicious cupcake is a sweet guava-filled cake topped with luscious cream cheese frosting and it proudly represents Miami and its invigorating sabor (taste). With Evelyn as the "batter girl" and Lorena as the "sprinkle girl," we expect these sassy sisters to turn up the Miami heat, here on Cupcake Wars.

He's Glenn and he's the baker, as you will soon learn upon first glance at his and partner, Laura's, T-shirts. When the economy took a turn for the worse, Glenn turned from theater management to his second love, baking. Since 2008, he has built up a strong online business complete with celebrity clients such as Tori Spelling. His mini works of art speak for themselves. Next on the horizon may be a mobile cupcake truck in LA, which will afford Glenn the opportunity to deliver his treats to the masses. In a race to the finish, will this nice guy finish last?

WINNER!: Kim Thurman
Kim fell in love with baking in seventh grade Home Ec and hasn't been able to stop since. It was during their morning kickboxing classes that she and friend Kim would trade punches and recipes. Soon the idea for Bake You Happy was born, and now these Kims have their very own business. These busy "mom-trepeneurs" are making a go of the cupcake craze and have received rave reviews with their inventive and delicious cupcakes. Their cupcakes have been kid-tested and mother-approved, but how will they score with our judges?
