Hosts Nicole and Jacques are back to judge the chaos in the kitchen, from half-baked doll cakes to delightfully creepy edible clowns.
The Marvel Episode! — The bakers summon their not-so-super powers to make Marvel-themed cupcakes with detailed cookie toppers and a daunting “Black Panther” cake. Actress and gaming icon Felicia Day joins the judge’s panel.

Masterpiece or Disasterpiece? — The amateur bakers attempt to imitate the masters with gingerbread self-portraits and a sculpted cake replica of Michelangelo’s “David.” Actress and comedian Betsy Sodaro joins Nicole and Jacques on the judge’s panel.

Oui Can’t Bake! — The pressure’s on to make perfectly puffed éclairs and a layered bust of Napoleon Bonaparte for not one but two esteemed French chefs as esteemed pastry master Hubert Keller joins the judge’s panel.
Ready to Wear, Ready to Eat — Two high-fashion challenges put the bakers’ hopeless skills to the test: fondant-covered doll cakes and an edible headdress heaped with fruit. Humorist and pastry chef Charles Phoenix join Nicole and Jacques on the panel.
