Episode 10: Superheroes Who Can Bake

"I am secretly Valerie, Cake Crusader," Valerie announces to the three finalists, just before Duff breaks out from behind a wall and surprises the kids. "Today is all about superheroes," he says, revealing his alter ego as Dessert Man. "Desserts fuel my superhuman strength," he explains of his powers. Each young baker will have to create "an original superhero cake," Valerie says, explaining the finale challenge. "I have no clue what I'm going to do," says Aidan.

Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

"I want something bold and different for the finale," says Aidan, deciding on a lemon-rosemary olive oil cake that he knows Valerie will appreciate. But while working on his frosting, he smells some of his cakes burning. "I'm just going to shave it off," he says, and he uses simple syrup to moisten the cake and hide any dryness. "This is the finale, and everything matters," he says, putting extra pressure on himself.

Creative Cover-Up

Like Aidan, Kaniyah also makes a lemon and rosemary cake but adds blueberries. To give her cake the superhero look, she trims it into the shape of a shield for Catastrophe Girl. But after finishing her decoration, she's disappointed. "If I was an artist, this cake would have been amazing," she says, dotting the cake with different candies. "I think you just went to town," Duff says of the design. Unfortunately, he and Valerie find it's dense and more like a muffin.

Baking with a Rosy Forecast

"You have to make sure it tastes like what you're saying," Justice says, explaining his decision to liberally use rose extract in his Weather Man cake. Unfortunately, while covering his cakes with fondant, he encounters tears. "I can make clouds and cover this up," he says, coming up with an instant solution. "It's not too much," Duff says of the rose flavor, although he feels Justice could have used more cloud coverage. Valerie can't stop eating it.
