Omaha bakers to appear on 'Cupcake Wars'

  • 0

The twin sisters who opened Mockingbird Cupcakes in March in west Omaha will appear on "Cupcake Wars". The episode will air at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 on the Food Network.

Rachael Henderson said she and Sarah Alsup were chosen based on an audition video to compete for a $10,000 prize in the three-round cupcake-baking competition.

“It'll give us awesome exposure, and it will show people our personality and that we're legit,” Henderson said.

The sisters had no formal baking or business experience when a 2012 episode of "Cupcake Wars" inspired them to open their business.

The shop was featured in a March series in The Omaha World-Herald about the process of opening a small business.

Other Omaha shops whose bakers have appeared on the show include Jones Bros., Bliss Old Market Bakery and Cuppycakes.
