Plot Synopsis

In each episode, three contestants have nine hours to create cakes for some major event, such as: the opening of a new shark exhibit at the Long Beach Aquarium; Legoland's 10th birthday; the July 4th Celebration at the Reagan Library. To take home the $10,000 prize and have their cake showcased as the centerpiece of the event, competitors must make cakes that are at least five feet tall, capture the essence of the event and win over the client. During the competition, there are two mini-challenges -- a skills test and a taste test -- which may cause contestants to sit out for 30 minutes. The series is hosted by chef Michael Schulson, owner of Atlantic City's Izakaya. Judges include: Margaret Braun, an acclaimed sugar artist based in New York; Leigh Grode, owner of Los Angeles' Cake Divas bakery.
