Coccadotts win big on Cupcake Wars

ALBANY - Persistence pays off for Coccadotts Cake Shop co-owners, Rachel Cocca-Dott and Matthew O'Connor. Coccadotts brought home the $10,000 prize after their third and final trip to Hollywood for the taping of the ninth season of the hit Food Network show "Cupcake Wars."

"It just goes to show that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. It takes patience and persistence," said Rachel Cocca-Dott. "Matt and I are very fortunate and we've met so many great people along the way. We look forward to what's ahead including the opening of two new locations in 2014 and are grateful for the support from our staff, family, friends and our valued customers."

Coccadotts shared the sweet victory Saturday night among a crowd of nearly 800 people at the Holiday Inn at 205 Wolf Road in Albany for a special viewing party. In addition to the $10,000 prize, Coccadotts won the opportunity to showcase their winning cupcakes at WWE SummerSlam.

"This is certainly a chapter in our lives we'll never forget. It truly was an amazing experience," said Matthew O'Connor.
