March Twitter Chat: Cupcake Wars’ Contestants

VegNews hosts its second Twitter Chat with special guests, vegan bakers from Sticky Fingers Bakery and C'est La V Bakeshop.

VegNews is thrilled to host our second Twitter Chat with two very special guests, Doron Petersan, the baking genius behind Sticky Fingers Bakery, and Kim Garr, the LA baker serving up tasty treats for her online shop, C’est La V Bakeshop. These fabulous ladies, fresh from their Food Network Cupcake Wars episode, will dish the behind-the-scenes dirt of what it's like to whip up vegan cupcakes fast and furiously. Find out why Garr used to be afraid of baking cakes and what crazy ingredients they had to use. What did their audition tapes look like? How did they handle the pressure?

Never done a Twitter Chat before? Don’t worry. We have a handy guide to explain it all. Join in on Wednesday, March 9 at 6pm PT/9pm ET at the hashtag #VegNewsChat. Doron will be chatting under the handle @stickyfingersdc, Kim under her handle @cestlavegan, and @VegNews will be hosting the discussion. Chime in with your comments and questions, or just relax and enjoy the conversation. See you then!
