Episode 5: Sugar Cookie Malfunctions

"If the royal icing doesn't set up, it will drip on the tree," Michelle says, deciding to decorate her cookies for the Halloween cookie tree Pre Heat with modeling chocolate, whereas Tamara and Veronica are sticking with royal icing. But Veronica runs out of icing and waters down what she has left to stretch it. Michelle runs into issues when she leaves her modeling chocolate in the blast chiller too long, and ends up using the microwave to soften it before rolling it out.

Redemption Goal Not Completely Met

"I want to redeem myself," Veronica tells Jeff of her decision to remake her sugar cookie skulls from last week to prove to the judges she can make a cookie that's worth an advantage. "I think Michelle jinxed me," says Veronica after her cookies dripped all over her tree base. Carla makes note of the drips, but after tasting the cookies, the judges find that they are vastly different than they were last time but the orange blossom flavor is not present. "It disappeared," says Damiano.

A Tear-Jerking Tribute

"I find this one cutter that's perfect for Damiano," says Tamara, making the judge a Frankenstein lemon sugar cookie. Carla thinks it could have baked longer, but Sandra disagrees. "Your decorated cookie was as beautiful as it tastes," says Sandra. Damiano is brought to tears when the cookies remind him of ones he used to eat as a kid on Epiphany in Italy. Although the decision wasn't unanimous, Tamara wins the challenge. "I'm the only home baker left," she says, in need of any advantage she can get.

Every Woman for Herself

The final Main Heat will determine the winner of $25,000. Required to make a ginger dead house, Tamara chooses the gothic mansion theme for herself because it's the easiest. She gives Veronica the cabin in the woods, and Michelle the asylum. "I'm just not feeling the asylum," says Michelle, but soon an octagonal design idea comes to her mind and she's off designing. "I'm not cheering you on today," Veronica says after Michelle gloats that she's the first baker with gingerbread in the oven.
