Full Episode Guide
  • Four adventurous sugar artists have a near impossible assignment: create a fantasy flying machine out of sugar that moves through the air. Combining movement with sugar is a recipe for disaster, so the big question is whether any of these machines will survive their maiden voyage. The one that can is worth ten grand.

  • It's three rounds of cookies like you've never seen before. Four top pastry chefs have come to Challenge armed with their best cookie recipes. What they don't know is that each round will also test their ability to adapt to some twists and turns. The competitor that earns the highest overall score over the three rounds will win ten thousand dollars.

  • Four cake artists have to make cakes to celebrate a tenth high school reunion. And who better to assist with the cake than the former classmates of the class of 2000? The rebel, the cheerleader, the jock and the nerd all have a bone to pick with each other. And it will be settled in the Food Network Challenge studio. The winning competitor will earn ten thousand dollars.

  • Four cake artists are assisted by four newly married husbands. Their challenge is to create a custom "newlywed cake" for the new brides. The judges will pick the best cake. The twist is that in order to unlock the $10,000, at the end of the challenge, the bride must be able to identify which cake was designed exclusively for her. If she gets it wrong, then the competitor who made the best cake cannot win. The bride whose cake places second must then figure out which cake is hers. The match game continues until one lady picks the right cake.

  • In this knock down, drag out Challenge, four cake designers make cakes inspired by teams in the Denver Roller Dolls League. There's plenty of drama, both in the competition kitchens--and on the skating rink. Best cake of the day earns its maker ten grand.
