Vote: Which Cake Would You Want at Your Celebration?

In an attempt to conquer what Chef Bobby Flay deemed "the final frontier for any home cook," the remaining Worst Cooks in America recruits tackled the sweeter side of the kitchen: baking. Sweet Genius Ron Ben-Israel stopped by Boot Camp to offer them a basic cake-making tutorial, and while some of their hopes for dreamy dessert crumbled, a few recruits rose to the occasion.

After a 90-minute bake-off, the Blue Team's Alina and the  Red Team's Rasheeda were named the most-successful competitors in this week's Main Dish Challenge, as they managed to pull off cakes that boasted creative design and winning flavor combinations. Both baking with their cakes' eventual recipients in mind, Alina and Rasheeda utilized age-appropriate ingredients and fitting frosting designs that reflected what Dash and Sawyer, twin 7-year-old birthday boys, and Rita, a recent retiree, respectively, would enjoy at their celebrations. Alina offered the boys a multicolored caked filled with jam and peanut butter cups as a nod to the kid-friendly PB&J sandwich, while Rasheeda took Rita's like of nuts to the next level by adding pecans to the top of her light pink-tinted ginger cake.

If you were in need of a cake for your celebration, whose would you order? Are you a fan of Alina's playful flavor approach to the classic dessert, or do you prefer more mature tastes like the ginger in Rasheeda's cake? Would you opt for over-the-top color like Alina's orange-and-green creation, or would you keep it simple with subtle hues?

So tell us: Which cake would you want at your celebration?
