Full Episode Guide
  • Steve and Christine have owned Schenk's Family Bakery in Philadelphia for 26 years, and with such deep ties to baking, the Schenks don't want to see this place crumble. Some weeks the bakery makes so little dough that the staff doesn't get paid. Kerry quickly discovers that wasteful use of product and resources are to blame for the bakery's decline: She puts a stop to old ways and invigorates the staff with new treats and brings their decorations into the 21st century.

  • It's old versus new when Kerry Vincent tries to tackle the problems facing Holmesburg Bakery, Philadelphia's oldest family-run bakery. Owner George is adamant on keeping old traditions alive while his son Buddy wants to see high-tech bakery innovations prevail. Kerry breathes new life into their sweets and demands that Buddy and George make improvements on their own, because if this father and son duo can't work together, this 114-year-old family institution is going under.

  • Ann's Bakery is the oldest and most famous cake shop in Tulsa, but its been downhill for the shop since a fire ravaged the kitchen and forced the bakery to close for over a year. In the face of slashed cake sales and debt, owner Sharon has handed the reins to her daughter Shannon, who has struggled to keep up with her workload and keep staff happy and paid. Kerry Vincent needs to bring this 75-year-old institution out of the past and into the future with fresh cake ideas and a renovation of epic proportions.

  • Lori's Sweet Sinsations Tea Room and Bakery in Sapulpa, Okla., is the dream of stay-at-home mom Lori, who has put her savings on the line just to keep the place alive. Lori's heart is in baking, but her business skills are lacking — she cannot manage staff and she will often give out product for free! Kerry knows that this is not a recipe for success, so she gives Lori and her husband, Bobby, a crash course in pricing, staff training and amping up the flavor of this home baker's creations.

  • Flourtown Bakery in Flourtown, Pa., is facing extreme money problems — owners Frank and Denise have tapped into their pensions, borrowed from family, maxed out credit cards and put off vacations — just to keep the doors open. But all the money in the world hasn't revamped the bakery's menu, nor made cake designs any more exciting. Kerry gives their cookies a kick and teaches them some cake tricks of the trade so the bakery can get back on its feet.
