Chef Rachel Reagan of Touch of Love Catering has some good news. She is going to be on season 7 of “Cupcake Wars.” The Food Network series is one of my guilty pleasures. My wife and I watch the show every week and sometimes I take to Twitter to complain about the gross ingredients they make the contestants use in round one. I’ve twice visited a bakery in St. Louis because of its appearance on the show.
I first met Rachel at a Junior League event. We’ve crossed paths several times since at events such as the Women Today Expo, the Tennessee Food & Wine Festival and the Signature Chefs Auction. I “liked” Rachel’s Facebook page in order to keep up with any developments she’s permitted to reveal about the show.
My wife bought one of Rachel’s cakes for me at a Star 102.1 Bake Sale last year. I ate some and froze the rest, which I devoured over the course of the next six months. If the photo of holiday cupcakes on her site is any indication, Rachel should do well in the competition.
