Amy's cupcake wars brings the Food Network television show to your kitchen. Participants are usually divided into three teams. Following a recipe, each team makes a batch of cupcakes, which are multi-colored vanilla. While the cupcakes are in the oven, all the teams make frosting, which can also be colored. When the cupcakes come out of the oven, participants then decorate them with over 100 different types of decorations. The cupcakes are judged by three to four fun categories that are chosen by the host of the party.
