Cupcake Battle Contestant: Five Sisters Bakery

On April 20, some of South Florida's best-loved bakers will compete in the New

Times Cupcake Battle at the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival.

These brave men and women will serve up thousands of cupcakes, vying

for awards like Best Tasting, Best

Decorated, and Fan Favorite. We thought you might like to know the

players behind those taste little treats, so every day or so, we'll

spotlight another one of the contestants.

David Muchnick named his Five Sisters Bakery after his five daughters. The girls, aged 4 to 20, are all actively involved with the business, with 20-year-old Nikki taking the lead as a full-time employee who specializes in sales and service.

The business has been in Muchnick's family for three generations and is devoted to creating and producing fresh, daily-made, healthy, artisan baked goods. Five Sisters Bakery specializes in flatbreads, breads, and breadsticks made with whole grains and no added sugar. The bakery sells many of its products to restaurants, country clubs, and retailers. The Muchnick family also sells directly at some local farmers' markets.

Though cupcakes aren't part of their normal product line, daughter Nikki saw a unique challenge in the upcoming Cupcake Challenge and convinced her dad to enter the competition.

The cupcake Five Sisters is entering is a take on a traditional Russian

breakfast bread, a "kupcake" made from whole grain Russian raisin bread,

topped with a cream cheese and Prosecco frosting (a non-Prosecco

version will also be available). When asked about the competition,

Muchnick said he's planning on having a wonderful family outing and

enjoying the day. If the family wins, it will just make the day a little

sweeter.


Five Sisters Bakery takes orders daily, starting at 3 a.m. For
