Debbie Klein's double chocolate raspberry cupcake was selected the best overall by Misny, comedian Mike Polk Jr. and 19 Action News weatherman Jason Handman. The three judges tried all 45 entries Friday morning in Hillcrest Hospital's third annual Cupcake Wars.
About 1,800 cupcakes were in the Hillcrest lobby Friday. Some were judged while others were donated and sold to the public. Hillcrest raised $2,108 for the American Heart Association, manager of cardiopulmonary services Lorena Hewitt said.
It took about 45 minutes for judges to reach consensus. With Misny uttering "oh my God" with nearly every bite, it's easy to understand why.

- Anything Goes — Black Forest Cupcake by Bunny Cobb
- Professional — White Almond Cupcake by Andrea Vann of Sweet D's
- Youth — Tie Dye Cupcake by Baylee Silvaggio
