MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Anyone with a sweet tooth and penchant for cupcakes may be interested to learn that Coccadotts Cake Shop in Myrtle Beach will be featured on the Food Network show Cupcake Wars on Sunday night.

In addition, they are hosting a viewing party at the Clarion Hotel located in 101 Fantasy Harbour Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday evening. The party will include hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar and of course, more than 4,000 complimentary cupcakes from Coccadotts, according to a news release.

The show Cupcake Wars pits four of the country's top bakers against one-another in three elimination rounds until only one cook stands. The winner takes home a $10,000 prize, and a chance to showcase their cupcakes at a winning event. The featured event up for grabs is the opportunity to cook for actress Tiffani Thiessen's birthday party.

This is Coccadotts second time on the show, their first appearance was in 2011.  "We are very grateful for the opportunity to appear on Cupcake Wars a second time around," said Coccadotts Cake Shop co-owner Rachel Cocca-Dott. "We look forward to sharing the excitement this coming Sunday with our family, friends and fans."

Coccadotts has two more locations in Albany, NY and Colonie, NY which will also host parties.
