Sara's Sweets Bakery is preparing something secret -- it's under wraps for now -- for Dessert Wars.

The Grand Rapids-based bakery is a returnee for Dessert Wars, which is 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Amway Grand's Ambassador Ballroom in downtown Grand Rapids.

Cupcakes are a big part of the menu at Sara's, with Snickers, chocolate peanut butter and almond cupcakes brought in on a visit with Channel 95.7's "Connie and Curtis."

While Sara's Sweets brought three cupcake varieties in for its pre-Dessert Wars visit, it offers many, many more than that of the regular and gourmet or filled varieties.

Sara's Sweets is among about a dozen sweet treat makers from Grand Rapids and across West Michigan taking part in Dessert Wars, presented by Channel 95.7 and Hobart Corp. Running 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Amway Grand Plaza, 187 Monroe Avenue NW, admission is $8 and children younger than 9 years old are $2 with tickets available at the door. Admission includes 15 sample tickets, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Grand Rapids non-profit Kids' Food Basket.

Besides cupcakes, the menu at Sara's Sweets also includes cakes, including specialty and special occasion cakes; cheesecakes; cookies; pastry bars; scones; pecan pies; chocolate-dipped strawberries; dipped pretzels; and cake pops.

Sara's Sweets is located at 2211 East Beltline Avenue NE, Suite F2, next to Qdoba's and Subway.
