You can't talk about Texas history without mentioning the Alamo, and the famous institution asks the Sideserfs to make a bust cake of a famous Texan for the opening of a new exhibition. Natalie and Dave also have an order for another Texas icon: country music legend Ray Benson, whose crew wants to give him a birthday surprise by presenting the cake on stage at South by Southwest in front of a giant crowd.
The San Antonio Zoo wants an over-the-top cake for their VIP fundraiser for a new jaguar habitat, but they've got a tough request for Natalie and Dave Sideserf: they want jaguars featured prominently, but they don't want to cut into anything resembling an animal. The unusual request has the Sideserfs experimenting with new techniques, but that's not the only animal on their plate: they're also challenged to make a cricket-shaped cake out of cricket flour for an event to get kids excited about bugs.
Cakes are flying in the big Texas sky as Natalie and Dave Sideserf work on two airborne cakes. A local art school asks the Sideserfs to make a cake for their big open house, so Natalie and Dave get to work on a flying kitten cake complete with parachute. Meanwhile, when a skydiving school calls, the Sideserfs experiment with a magnetic platform to make an edible penguin that can fly.
The famous Moontower Comedy Festival is amongst Austin's most beloved local events, and the Sideserfs are excited to make a funny cake featuring a sloth. To get it done in time, Natalie asks Dave to try his hand at sculpting for the first time. Then, they receive another sweet order from a much different client: a local sculpture garden requests a life-sized replica of one of their garden's most beautiful visitors for their gala.
"Keep Austin Weird" is the unofficial slogan of the Sideserfs' beloved home, and one of Austin's strangest institutions, the Museum of the Weird, wants a cake befitting their name to celebrate their anniversary. Then, the annual dragon boat races order a show-stopping cake to celebrate the annual Chinese festival. Natalie plans to create a massive, ornate dragon cake, but Chinese mythology is crammed with symbolism that's easy to get wrong.
