Cupcake displays for the World Series of Poker on 'Cupcake Wars'The challenge Tina and Robin faced on 'Cupcake Wars' (Tuesdays, 8PM on Food Network) was to make treats delicious enough to impress people who make a living by hiding their enthusiasm. That is, they each had to create a 1,000-cupcake display for the World Series of Poker.

Things started well enough in the idea stage. Tina planned for four tiers, each one looking like a poker chip and adorned with glitz and four aces across the top. Robin had a similar idea, to create a poker table with tiers that looked like chips and "fanning across the very top, how about the best hand you could have, would be a royal flush," she said.

Tina had problems early, having to throw out a batch of batter because she had forgotten to include the eggs and the peanut butter. By then, Robin was already starting to frost. She may have had to race to the finish, but her presentation won out in the end, in part because her design spoke more to the World Series of Poker's logo design. Or, as it was noted, for the first time ever, four aces beat a royal flush.
