Military families: Cupcake Wars wants you! Here's the Cupcake Pilots video audition and spotlight

Cupcake Wars Season 7 is looking for military families to audition. Army Wife 101 posted:

A casting associate for one of my favorite shows “Cupcake Wars” emailed me to let me know that they are seeking “Military Spouses” or people with a military connection who have a passion for baking. This can include military moms/dads/husbands etc. to appear on Season 7 of Cupcake Wars...

If you are interested the deadline is NEXT WEEK so contact Lauren (casting associate) immediately for details.

You'll have to contact them to find out more.

I did a little looking around and discovered the Cupcake Wars audition video of Cupcake Pilots, a custom cupcake company based in Las Vegas whose tagline is "making your taste buds take flight." The owner's husband is a fighter pilot, hence their name. It's a fun video that talks a little about what it's like to be a military family and have to move every three years, and what their mission is when it comes to making cupcakes for their community and, if they win, to ship cupcakes to military bases. They're in the final round of the selection process, according to their latest Facebook update. Watch:
