Two central Iowa cupcake businesses will be battle for supremacy on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.

Earlier this month we told you Crème Cupcake of Des Moines would be competing on the June 30th episode and now we’ve learned an Ames bakery is appearing on the same episode.

The Cupcake Emporium, located at 300 Main Street in Ames, is one of the four cupcake businesses that will try to beat out the rest to win the $10,000 prize. Business owner Tawnya Zerr says they’ve only been able to hint to fans about a special Cupcake Wars episode, but now they can confirm they’re on the June 30th episode. It airs at 7:00 p.m.
