Full Episode Guide
  • To celebrate the release of Toy Story 3, four cake designers will make cakes inspired by Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Mrs. Potatohead, plus some new and old friends. But that's not all, these cakes have to come to life as well, just like the toys in the film. The winning cake designer will earn a cool ten grand.

  • Four cake artists know that they are at Challenge to design a cake to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the "Universal Royalty Beauty Pageant," a beauty pageant for young girls. What the competitors don't know is that the pageant mothers will help them make the cakes. These moms may not know cake, but they know how to win and definitely have their own opinions. The winning cake will earn one competitor ten thousand dollars and a gold medal.

  • Four cake designers come to Challenge to tell a real ghost story in cake. Based on personal experience, the cakes must be evocative as well as be outstanding technically. The competitor that can hit the mark with both their storytelling and cake skill will win ten thousand dollars.

  • Four Cake Designers battle stage fright and the clock to create cakes that actually tell a joke! All the cakes are delivered to a live show at a comedy club, where the competitors take the stage to see if their cake is funny enough to take home $10,000.

  • In this Challenge, four veteran competitors must make a birthday cake for the ultimate Mystery Client, a person of exquisite taste and discrimination. It is Kerry Vincent, wedding cake designer, Hall of Fame Sugar Artist, and frequent Challenge judge.

  • Three mad scientists disguised as pastry chefs are taking on what sounds like an impossible task: build a Rube Goldberg machine - an elaborate machine that accomplishes a simple task - out of sugar. It's a crazy quest for $10,000 that pushes these chefs to their limits...and beyond. Can this be done?
