Full Episode Guide
  • CCC has some killer cakes on the books this week with a haunted chapel w/zombie bride & groom. And it's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cake, and a six-foot long replica of a Hershey Bar for Milton Hershey School's 100th Birthday.

  • Mary Alice gets her party on at a Parrothead Mardi Gras fundraiser while Katie logs hours decorating an intricate purse for a surprise birthday. Duff and Geof work on a Wizard of Oz hot air balloon and an equestrian cake. Plus, a cake to be delivered by private plane to a unknown customer.

  • This week's cakes feature a gondola in Venice and a pizza pie full of Italian monuments with a gangster theme. The bakery is overrun with the usual craziness of stormtroopers, dog walkers and cake orders. And Geof responds when the pasta machine that drives everyone crazy suddenly goes missing.

  • Elena tunes up her music skills by making a unique bass guitar for a client with a special story. Erica is overwhelmed with the challenges of doing a cake for the Mummers in Philadelphia and Duff, Geof and Mary head up to New York to celebrate the Yankees new stadium and meet some very big names in baseball.

  • Duff suits up to do battle as he and Ben whip up the craziest video game star ever... the Big Red Squig... and meet some uber gaming fans. Geof's Pinto cake starts leaking fluid on its delivery run and Katie has trouble seeing straight as she does a cake for a video tribute at the Contemporary Museum. Geof clues us into the traits that make us his crack cake delivery staff and spatulas go flying as Video Duff goes to war, onscreen, against his nemesis, the flesh-eating Squig.

  • This week Mary Alice is a nervous wreck trying to keep everything straight without spilling the beans - a bride and groom have BOTH ordered surprise cakes for each other on the day of their rehearsal dinner. Ben and Elena work on a huge Humpty Dumpty bridal shower cake and the bakery staff muses on the consequences of National Egg Day.

  • Big cakes and even bigger events are on order this week. Duff and his new buddy Brett make a cake for a Best Buddies International gala hosted by Superstar quarterback Tom Brady. Ben engineers an evil robot cake from the BBC TV series "Dr. Who" that spins, yells and destroys. The entire bakery staff gets to settle some workplace grievances at Splatter Hill paintball field. And Duff and Mary Alice make their long-awaited stage debut with the Annie National Tour.

  • Carnival Cruise Lines is coming to Baltimore and what better way to kick off the celebration than with a cake of the cruise ship Carnival Pride from Charm City Cakes! To Duff's surprise, Katie asks to take the lead on this massive project. But she's quickly overwhelmed by all the details on the Pride and falls behind schedule - can Duff and the decorators save her from going down with the ship?? And OMG! Lauren is making a cake inspired by the totally awesome 80's. Duff, Mary Alice and the decorators get radical remembering all the tubular 80's fashion. The beat is on as Duff and Geoff create another crazy cake... A giant marimba!
