Did you happen to catch the season premiere of Cupcake Wars Tuesday on Food Network? If not, meet Annette, winner of the season 3 premiere and owner of Goodie Girls Cupcakes opening this summer in Glendale, CA. (The cupcakery will be located just two blocks from the bustling Americana At Brand shopping and entertainment center.)

Annette, an adorable blonde dressed in a handmade tutu and bright pink hair bow, along with her Goodie Girl assistant, Jackie Brubaker (who is also the face of the emerging country/pop band, Jackie Brubaker and the Ex Boyfriends), whipped up cupcakes dusted with edible glitter that dazzled the judges. After surviving two elimination rounds, Annette advanced to the final phase of the competition held at Kentucky Derby 137 at Churchill Downs in Louisville.

Judged by Candace Nelson (owner of Sprinkles Cupcakes) and Florian Bellanger (owner and chef of MadMac), the winning cupcake display included Derby-inspired flavors like Mint Julep, Peaches N' Cream, Bubbly (dark chocolate cake, strawberry filling, and topped with Champagne frosting), and Blueberry Pancakes, all dusted with edible glitter. I absolutely love her love for glitter! She is my kind of girly girl - glitter, pink, cupcakes. Love it!

(Even though you already know who the winner is - maybe you just want to see her in action and see her amazing winning display that was featured at the Derby's star-studded Red Carpet event.)
