Have Cake, Will Travel

Cakes, Cocktails and Mardi Gras

Ashley Vicos is on familiar stomping grounds in her former hometown of New Orleans, but she's getting her first taste of Mardi Gras making an enormous castle cake for one of the many parades and parties in town, the Krewe of Tucks. After a quick trip to the country to visit her family and enjoy a little southern hospitality, Ashley struggles to keep her team on task in this 24-hour party city. Sugar artist Mary is daunted by the task of making hundreds of edible Mardi Gras beads and Intern Erin struggles to keep up when cake decorating turns out to be more stress than she bargained for. The castle cake is a huge 6-foot by 4-foot construction and Ashley is up against a tough climate, tight door frames and a ravenous party crowd. Will the castle stand strong, or will it come tumbling down? (Episode: AV0104)
