PARK CITY -- A cupcake war is brewing in Utah. Mini's Cupcakes was the first cupcake maker of its kind in Utah. Its signature cupcake is called the "Breakfast at Tiffany's." But Mini's owner says LuAnn's Cupcakes in Park City has copied her work with the "Tiffany's Jewels" cupcakes.

Mini's owner Leslie Fiet says, "She has several cupcakes that are completely different from my cupcakes, but this just happens to be our most popular and most distinctive cupcake that people associate with Mini's."

In a lawsuit, Mini's claims that LuAnn's has "adopted a strategy and philosophy to intentionally and unlawfully trade off the goodwill that Mini's has built by infringing Mini's trade dress rights in the 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' cupcake."

LuAnn Lukenbach who owns LuAnn's says she doesn't want to comment on the case.
