Food Network Looking for Cupcake Reality Stars

Just when you thought the cupcake thing was over, here comes a sign that it's anything but.

Last night we stumbled upon yet another cute cupcake web site -- this one is called Bella Cupcake Couture -- and some breaking news (something you don't often encounter on a cupcake web site, frankly). Looks like the Food Network is on a hunt for bakers to appear on a reality show about -- you guessed it.

So if you're a cupcake pro -- or even an amateur with Rachel Coleman-sized glasses and a willingness to make a fool of yourself in front of a national audience -- check out the details of the search.

See you on TV, baby.... Seriously, sugar mamas (and daddies), be sure to let us know if you get an audition.
