Season 3, Episode 3

Celebration Cakes

Ten chefs, all strangers, pair up in five teams of two. For the first part of the competition, they work separately. Then, in the final two hours, the teams get to work together. Their challenge: to come up with a cake that's worthy of $10,000. Only there's a twist...and it's a big one. The competitors won't find out until minutes before the competition WHO their partners are and WHAT the theme is. This is a competition that tests creativity and cooperation, all under a ticking clock.
