Cupcakes, Wars, and Magic?

    Host of Cupcake Wars, Justin Willman, performed his “Tricked Out” show tour in Huntsville, AL on September 7. 

    Prior to the show Justin Willman, Formally known as Justin Kredible, had a meet and greet at Gigi’s cupcake shop. He talked to the fans of the show and fans of his magic. 

    Willman also had a mini cupcake war, where he was the judge, between two local Gigi’s. He said he never gets to eat the cupcakes on the show so he loves doing these competitions. A tie was given to the two stores.

    His show called “Tricked Out” was performed later that night. The show lasted for an hour and a half. The show consisted of anything from predicting what the audience was thinking to card effects and comedy. The show was almost sold out Friday night.

The Shot Heard ‘Round The World…Of Magic

    Morgan Strebler, known as “The Man Criss Angel Fears”, posted a youtube video on August 31 issuing a challenge to Criss Angel. The video hit over 3,000 views by the second day after it was posted. 

    The video stated that Criss Angel has stepped on some of Strebler’s friends’ toes. Those friends’ names were not mentioned. In the video, Strebler also stated that he has made magic laughable by using camera tricks and has issued a challenge for Criss Angel. 

    The challenge, Strebler said, doesn’t have to be in front of non-magicians but wants it to be done live and fair for the both of them. The challenge could be anything but he said Angel always wants to push himself so why not have a Water Torture Cell along with either stage illusions or street magic or all of the above.

    If that isn’t enough for Angel to accept, Strebler said he’d donate $10,000 to the charity of Angel’s choice no matter who wins. 

    “Criss wants a challenge then here’s a challenge with a charity….why not do something good for other people,” Strebler said. “We can do it (the challenge) at a magic convention and I’d still give money to charity,” Strebler stated. 

    Morgan Strebler said that the challenge will still be open but he’s not posting anymore about the challenge on Facebook.

    Angel’s team has not commented on the challenge.
