Fresh off her bakery's triumph on the second season of Cupcake Wars, Doron Petersan of Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats is doing what winners do best: writing a book. According to Publishers Marketplace, SWEET!: The Super Secret Recipes from Sticky Fingers Bakery got picked up by Avery, a health and wellness Penguin imprint. The cookbook, due out in early 2012, will presumably divulge the secrets behind Petersan's popular vegan cupcakes and other baked goods. So skip the trip to Columbia Heights and get ready to try your own hand at the Cupcake Wars-winning Gilbert Ganache-fried — a chocolate seltzer cupcake topped with ganache, banana crème frosting and caramelized bananas.
