ANCHORAGE- An Eagle River cupcake baker and her assistant are set to star in an episode of "Cupcake Wars."

Cupcake-truck owner Kastle Sorensen and her assistant, Amy Grue, have studied the long-running show, analyzing past episodes for as many as 12 hours at a time.
The episode featuring them is set to air at 4 p.m. Saturday on the Food Network. The episode has already been recorded, but Sorensen can't say who won because of the network's confidentiality agreement.
To prepare for any potential curve balls, Sorensen and Grue made practice cupcakes with ingredients like cow brain and beef tongue.
They are the first bakers from Alaska to be featured on the show, which is a bake-off centered on a theme.
