Surfing Cupcakes on 'Cupcake Wars'Nothing goes together like cupcakes and surfing. To that end, the bakers on this week's episode of 'Cupcake Wars' (Sundays, 9PM on Food Network) competed to have their confections showcased at a V.I.P. party at the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California. Both of the finalists went with a beach scene, but only one fit the assignment well enough to win.

One team went with a table with a grass skirt, the bottom of which they wanted to look like a beach being hit by waves. The other team, led by Stephanie Franz of Cupcakes Couture on Manhattan Beach, made a series of surf boards so her cakes could ride the waves. "I wanted my surf boards to be a little topsy-turvy and have that wave go over all of them," said Franz, "so it's almost like all the cupcakes are riding the wave."

The judges appreciated that Franz's design was an interpretation of surfing and not too literal, and her surfing cakes won her the Cupcake Wars.
