The new baking recruits quickly learn that boot camp is no cakewalk. To assess everyone's skill sets, chefs Duff Goldman and Lorraine Pascale have the recruits bake something inspired by pictures and recipes from the internet. After witnessing the #bakingfails, the chefs go back to basics and teach them a delicious sugar cookie recipe. Who will be the best of the worst and who will crumble under the pressure?
