Coccadotts Cup Cake Wars III

Coccadotts owner Rachel Cocca Dott

Coccadotts was back on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars this past weekend. And it won.

The Colonie-based bakery came out on top of a "bad girls" WWE-themed episode. Coccadotts bounced back from a first-round setback in which the judges weren't on board with a chicken breast/yam/cinnamon cupcake, to make it through to the final round where the judges praised Coccodotts' flavor adjustments and its large display involving a wrestling "ring" surrounded by cupcakes sitting in the "stands."

The ep aired this past Saturday. It will repeat this coming Friday (September 27) at 11 am. It's also available on-demand from Amazon Instant Video.

Coccadotts says the winning cupcake varieties will be on sale in its shops today (it also has locations in Clifton Park and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina).

It was the bakery's third shot on the show -- the first was in 2011, the second aired earlier this year.

Coccadotts has been savvy about scoring attention and publicity over the years, not just through its Food Network appearances. Its Super Bowl-themed cupcakes -- including a Buffalo wing cupcake -- got it national coverage this past January.
