It’s hard to imagine that anyone would go into battle armed with a peppermint schnapps-flavored cupcake. But it is such novel and sweet creations that earned Echo Park resident and baker Celeste Alleyne, owner of Soul Cups Cupcakes, a chance to compete in an upcoming episode of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. “To learn how this cupcake battle is fought, you must watch the show,” said Alleyne in a press release. “I’m sworn to secrecy and can’t share any details.” The show airs Feb. 11 but cupcake afficionados will have a chance to sample Alleyne’s creations later this month during the Soul Cups Cupcakes Holiday Sale and Celebration Dec. 12 at Say Cheese Café in Silver Lake.
