Plot Synopsis

EXTREME CAKE MAKERS is a half-hour reality series that lifts the lid on the successes and failures of an elite group of cake makers and sugar craft specialists in the United Kingdom, who go all out to produce the world's most elaborate and breath-taking creations. From a life-size Shetland pony to a 9-ft long edible working steam train, this is the cutting edge of cake. But it's not all buttercream. One slip of the knife or a soggy sponge can mean a caketastrophe! On Friday, November 10, 2017 at 11pm ET/8pm PT, Cooking Channel aired the U.S. premiere of this series, showing back-to-back episodes:

"Gravity-Defying Cakes" (11pm): Sugar craft specialist Eloise Durrant has a commission like no other: a gravity-defying, five-tier cake that will hang upside down like a chandelier. Meanwhile, Phil and Christine Jensen embark on one of their biggest and most ambitious cakes to date -- a seven-foot-long cake with a Wallace and Gromit theme estimated to take over 400 hours to complete.

"A Fishy Commission" (11:30pm): Husband-and-wife team Phil and Christine Jensen hope to scale new heights with a very fishy commission: a five-foot long lemon and elderflower cake designed to look like a leaping fish decorated with over 17 pounds of sugar paste. Meanwhile, an expectant couple asks baker Eloise Durrant to bake a special cake, the color of which will reveal their baby's gender to party guests...and to the parents-to-be!
Season 2 of EXTREME CAKE MAKERS premiered on Cooking Channel on Friday, June 1, 2018 at 10pm ET/7pm PT, beginning with the season opener, "A Rock 'n' Roll Caricature.'
