Masterchef Junior series premiere kicks off with world’s smallest cupcake story image

On Wednesday, “Masterchef Junior” along with Sprinkles Cupcakes, FOX and Shine America, created the World’s Smallest Cupcake in celebration of the series premiere, which airs Friday at 7 p.m.

Award-winning chef and “Masterchef Junior” host, judge and executive producer Gordon Ramsay and the pint-size contestants unveiled the world’s tiniest cupcake at The Grove Park in Los Angeles. The signature Sprinkles red velvet cupcake, nearly the size of a penny, was revealed in an enormous mystery box, and fans in attendance got a taste of mini-cupcakes from Sprinkles.

In the series premiere of “Masterchef Junior,” 24 of the best junior home cooks in the country between the ages of eight and 13 will create their tastiest seafood, pasta or dessert dish in the auditions round and present it to the renowned “Masterchef” judging panel: host and award-winning Chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich (Del Posto, Eataly) and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot, Graham Elliot Bistro). Twelve kids who impress the judges will continue in the competition and move one step closer to becoming America's youngest “Masterchef.”

Dave Acosta: 'For Esme' - a tribute to a lost friend
I really don't recall when or how I met Esme Berrera. She was just always "there." At local indie and punk shows. At parties. Making people dance as she played records at Downtown dives like the long-gone Regal Beagle. Making mixed tapes or CDs for friends. Always quick-witted, able to quote an artist for any occasion ("As the great Prince once said ... ) and sporting that smile.
