Earlier this year, Archie and his gang of Riverdale friends featured in an episode of Food Network’s Cake Wars, and tonight we get a sequel of sorts as Riverdale’s rock and roll idols, Josie and the Pussycats, are the toppers in tonights Cupcake Wars.

If you want to set your DVRs to record tonight’s Cupcake Wars, you’ll find it scheduled for 8PM EST / 7PM CST. You may want to keep your phone handy, as Archie Comics’ twitter account will be live tweeting the show.
