Jason Hisley, the lead pasry chef and designer at Flavor Cupcakery in Bel Air, will appear as a contestant on the April 12 episode of the Food Network's "Sweet Genius."
In "Puzzled Genius," Hisley and his opponents are asked to use pink lemonade a flamingo-desired dessert in one challenge, tackle a "favorite childhood puzzle" for inspiration in another and, finally, working with "Sweet Genius" host Ron Ben-Israel, make cakes with jackfruit and galangal.
Hisley is a Food Network veteran. He and Flavor Cupcakery owner Shelley Stannard were a winning team on a December 2011 episode of the Food Network show"Cupcake Wars."
At the time, Stannard said that she was hoping to use the team's $10,000 prize to open a second location. It looks like one is one the way. A second Flavor Cupcakery is due to open April 17 in Cockeysville's Scotts Corner Shopping Center.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
