Recently I found myself on a daytrip to Woodstock when I saw a sign for Peace, Love & Cupcakes that read "Best Cake in the Country"! It wasn't enough that Food Network made the declaration. I had to find out for myself!

My girlfriend got 'The Jerry Garcia' and I chose the cake that got all the attention from the television show, a decadent chocolate layer cake. Not only did it melt in my mouth but they made it easy to eat with mini spoons!

Janice Kollar, owner of Peace, Love & Cupcakes was on Season 1 of Cake Competition on Food Network. According to the shows website, her winning dish went on to spend a year on the T.G.I. Friday's menu.

The award winning Peace, Love & Cupcakes is located, on Cupcake Lane, across the street from Bob Dylan's former home on the legendary Tinker Street. Kollar isn't a one-time winner either. She was a finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off, won the First Place Crisco Blue Ribbon and winner of the Food Network's title for "Best Cake in the Country"!
