In the episode, Dana Herbert will face off against two other contestants in a challenge to create an edible masterpiece, win $10,000 and have their cakes featured at a marquee event. In this episode, the cake is in competition to be featured at Lego Land California's 10th Birthday.
With only nine hours, the competitors must make cakes that are at least five feet tall and are creative enough to win the taste of the client and the ultimate prize. To add to the pressure, the contestants also face two mini-challenges--a skills test and a taste test--that could give one team the ultimate advantage: being able to sit out another team for 30 minutes.
The series is hosted by chef Michael Schulson, owner of Atlantic City’s Izakaya. Joining Michael are judges Margaret Braun, an acclaimed sugar artist based in New York, and Leigh Grode, owner of Los Angeles’ Cake Divas bakery.
