Winner of Food Network’s ‘Cupcake Wars’ Opening A New Bakery in Charlotte


The owners of Fort Mill’s incredibly popular baker, Cupcrazed Cakery have just announced that they will be opening their first Charlotte location in a few months:

Heather McDonnell, the owner, founder, and head baker at Cupcrazed Cakery has already won two Food Network shows, including ‘Cupcake Wars’, and ‘Rewrapped’.

Her new Charlotte bakery will be located across from the Park Rd. Shopping Center at 1730 E. Woodlawn Rd. (in the old Polka Dot Bake Shop location):


The locally famous cupcake shop is best known for their wildly creative takes on traditional desserts:
