Pastry chef Huascar Aquino, the first-ever New York winner of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, brings his farm-to-table baking style to New York City with his new bakery, H Bake Shop.

One of Huascar’s unusual creations is the Popeye Loves Olive Oyl Cupcake, which is a spinach and extra virgin olive oil cake, filled with homemade tomato marmalade and topped with cream cheese frosting, tomato coulis and spinach cake crumbs.
