A great combination of burgers and cupcakes are hard to come by, but when two Food Network winners paired up on Tuesday afternoon, the outcome was victorious.
In January 2011, Kim Thurman and her partner competed and won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, allowing them to start their first storefront bakery, Bake You Happy.
A year prior to that a Los Angeles-based food truck, Grill Em All was announced as the season one winner of another Food Network show, The Great Food Truck Race.
Thurman thought it would be a good idea to bring a food truck to Valencia for customers to enjoy, so she contacted the guys of Grill Em All.
It wasn’t long before an award winning mash up of heavy metal hamburgers and gourmet cupcakes began.
Unknowingly, the first event turned out to be a huge success and inspired the duo to give it another go.
Fans and first time customers lined up in the summer heat to get a taste of the famous cupcakes and juicy seven-ounce burgers.
“This is my first time to the truck, so I’m excited,” a customer waiting in line said.
“I went to the last event and it was really good,” said another customer.
