Cupcake Wars.  Have you seen this show on Food Network?

The winner of last week’s show (Jan 22, 2012) was none other than Abby Jimenez, owner of Nadia Cakes, which is opening soon at the Shoppes of Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove.

Abby won over the judges with her New York cheesecake cupcake, which is made with Madagascar Bourbon vanilla bean and has a made-from-scratch piecrust bottom and freshly made whipped cream topping with triple berry compote.  Doesn’t this look great?

Construction on the Maple Grove store, which is expected to open in March in the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, is currently underway. Abby is in the process of looking for a kitchen manager, head designer, store manager, and dessert artists to work with her at the new bakery. Though now based in Minnesota, Abby and her husband will split their time between the Los Angeles store and the Maple Grove store.

  1. Caught my eye because my son is a chef and lives in Maple Grove. He has two little boys that adore cupcakes and yours look and sound fantastic.
    When you open I would like to send them some. Do you use any peanuts or peanut products in your baking? One of my grandsons has a sensitivity to peanuts.
    Congratulations and I will come and visit when I get up there. I’m in Sunny Florida now.

    Best of luck, Lonnie Williams, Clearwater, FL

  2. Truly the best cupcake quality I have ever had. Do you do birthday & wedding cakes as well? My favorite is the white vanilla bean.

  3. Can hardly wait for you to open!!
