The co-owner and namesake of 2-year-old Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes, Cakes and Such will try to win $10,000 against three other cupcake makers on an episode called “Cupcake Couture,” airing at 8 p.m.
Assisting Doyle in the competition kitchen is Miss Mamie’s employee Erin Sintos.
“Appearing on Food Network is the most exciting thing that has ever happened in my life, and I could have never imagined competing in a baking competition on national television when my brother and I opened the bakery just two years ago,” Doyle says in her blog.
Miss Mamie’s is holding a free viewing party for the show at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre. The doors open at 7 p.m., and Doyle promises plenty of cupcakes and a “special surprise” on the theater’s fourth floor after the show.
For more information, call the bakery at 678-290-9811. For a mouth-watering reminder of the tasty treats you can expect tonight, check out the review of Miss Mamie's we ran in February.
If you miss the party and the 8 p.m. broadcast (Channel 57 on Comcast), you'll have chances to see it at 3 a.m. Monday and 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Doyle isn't the first Mariettan to take a shot at Food Network fame. Last year Justin Balmes, a butcher and fishmonger at Harry's Farmers Market, competed on Season 7 of Food Network Star but was eliminated after four episodes.
