YMMV / Cupcake Wars

  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: Expect critics of the show to dismiss it as simply being "Chopped with Cupcakes".
  • Moment of Awesome: Small-business owner Chloe Coscarelli blowing away the competition in an aphrodisiac-themed challenge with vegan cupcakes.
  • The Scrappy: Justin William's attempts at humor can sometimes come across as pretty irritating, especially when compared to his calmer counterpart on Chopped, Ted Allen.
  • Squick: Pork being used as an ingredient for cupcakes in the Hawaiian episode.
