Sticky Fingers is racking up more honors. The vegan bakery on Park, which has also won multiple best vegan bakery and best bakery awards in the city, recently won something else on a bigger scale: best cupcake on Food Network's Cupcake Wars show. The winning cakes were "Gilbert Ganache-fried Cupcakes: Chocolate Seltzer Cupcakes with Ganache, Banana Frosting, and Caramelized Banana" by owner Doron Petersan (pictured). Sounds pretty intense. It's not on their website, but maybe they do it occasionally. Petersan is interviewed on VegNews too.
In any case, always nice to see a local business get some press. Let's hope the tourists don't find out about it and stand in line constantly like at Georgetown Cupcake.
