May 29, 2011 Season 4 Episode 10 watch on (Paid)

Rebecca comes into Gateaux Inc. to order a bridal shower cake for her twin sister Melissa. Melissa met her fiancee Tyler, a baseball player, at a bus stop where, upon seeing Tyler in his baseball uniform, Melissa asked if he was a basketball player. It was love at first sight. Rebecca, being the good sister that she is, wants a bridal shower cake that reflects both bride and groom. Robin suggests a sexy baseball-themed cake complete with scoreboard, peanuts, sexy lingerie and a caramel corn box that holds an exact replica of Melissa's engagement ring as the prize. Mark and Brittany meet with Christopher Garren to discuss their unusual wedding cake design. This couple vacationed in Paris and took a side trip to the Palace of Versailles. They not only fell in love with Versailles, but Mark produced a ring and proposed to Brittany in Louis XIV's opulent gardens. Now, Christopher must create a wedding cake for them that replicates elements from the Palace. This is no easy task, since Chris' vision involves lots and lots of pastillage elements, hand-painted frescos, and copious amounts of gold. Kate and Sam meet with Lauren from The White Flower Cake Shoppe, hoping that she can design the perfect wedding cake for their very specific tastes. They've always loved the art deco style and are having their wedding reception at the famous Silver Grille, a fully restored vintage art deco building in downtown Cleveland. Lauren suggests pulling specific design details from the Silver Grille as well as from their wedding invitations. Marianne doesn't fully realize the challenge ahead until they try to stencil the intricate art deco pattern evenly around the entire cake, and things don't go quite as planned.

Marcella and Sergio are having a lavish wedding reception for over 200 people in an iconic Los Angeles landmark, the Park Plaza Hotel. This venue is grand, classy and very over-the-top, and that's exactly how this couple wants their wedding cake. They meet with Christopher, who learns Marcella wants the cake to dazzle with her favorite color, burgundy red, and explode with flowers galore. The team at Christopher Garren's Cakes goes into overdrive, as they make hundreds of flowers to cover a cake that will be nearly 5 feet tall. In addition to the flowers, the cake features an urn, intricate gold detailing, a Faberge-style egg and a sheen so soft that the cake looks like it's covered in lush red velvet. Ayman and Entesar are an engaged couple who want to show their family and friends how happy they are to have found each other. They reveal to Marianne at White Flower Cake Shoppe in Ohio that their engagement party will be in a trendy club's Moroccan room, so they want a cake that compliments the room's decor. Nothing is too good for this classy bride, including a 4-tier cake with a 24-karat-gold dome and a sugar version of the engagement ring perched atop a soft cake pillow. Erin comes into Gateaux Inc. to discuss a very unusual groom's cake. It seems that Erin would like to incorporate her nickname into a cake. However, her husband's 'term of endearment' for her just happens to be 'possum'. This is a first for Robin, who must now create a cute version of an animal that is most famous for playing dead.

May 01, 2011 Season 4 Episode 6

Caroline and David just got engaged and love to cook together. Christopher Garren creates a design for their engagement cake that incorporates lots of their favorite culinary things, including a crate of fresh vegetables, recipe cards, a wok, plates, and a Dutch oven. Then there's a breakfast of bacon, eggs, toast & a coffee mug. Next there's the Peking duck, a chopping board and a knife. To top it all off, figurines of David and Caroline as chefs are made out of chocolate. It's a big cake with a lot of pieces to attach, so Chris and Kristen will have to assemble it on site at the party. Can Garren's team avoid a cake-tastrophy? This week, the White Flower Cake Shoppe is working on a Rubber Recycling grooms cake. Holly, the bride-to-be, wants to surprise her future groom, Dave, with a cake that honors the family rubber recycling business. Matt concocts a design that replicates the actual recycling plant, complete with stacks of tires and a grinder (used to grind up the rubber). Things get complicated, however, when Matt promises that he'll make the grinder on the cake actually move. Holly loves the idea, but the problem is that Matt doesn't know how he'll actually make it happen. With some help from a childhood mechanical building set, Matt and the White Flower team create an amazing cake that includes a working rubber tire grinder! Bride-to-be Susan and her mother Donna come to see Robin at Gateaux for the wedding cake Susan has always dreamed of. Since Robin designed the invitations for Susan's wedding, she's very familiar with the wedding theme and color scheme. The bride wants a cake that reflects who she is - formal, yet simple, elegant and fun. Robin comes up with a stunning, shimmering design that incorporates elements from the invitation and is perfect for celebrating both this winter wedding and its New Years Eve date. The glimmering gold cake has confetti bubbling up its tiers, just like a glass of champagne.

Bridesmaids Dresses, BBQ and Winter Wedding Cakes

Apr 24, 2011 Season 4 Episode 5

In Minneapolis, Hailey & Chelsea want to host a party for their soon-to-wed older sister, Heather. And they concocted a unique theme: it's an ode to all the really bad bridesmaid dresses that every girl has ever worn. The sisters and guests even plan to wear real bridesmaid dresses to the event. So Robin is to make a cake that will replicate three of the brightly colored yet hideous dresses that will be worn to the party. White chocolate molded bodices are made to drape the fondant dresses on. High heel shoes are sculpted. An edible bridal bouquet is crafted, but time is running out... Christopher at Christopher Garren's Cakes meets Sarah and Brian, a down-to-earth couple who want a wedding cake that's not formal or fussy. Chris gets his design inspiration from their wedding invitation, which features a fun picnic theme. Chris and his team will create picnic tablecloths out of fondant to drape from the cake layers, and watermelon slices, dragonflies and dandelions will complete his vision. Chris wants to make sure that Kristen creates watermelon slices that appear very real. He asks his newest intern, Junior, to find three unique watermelons to use as references. But accident-prone Junior brings only two melons back to the bakery -- what happened to the third? Kate & Anthony ask Cleveland's White Flower Cake Shoppe to create a wedding cake with a winter theme. Considering there's plenty of snow on the ground, co-owner Lauren agrees this seems appropriate. The bride insists that the ivory-colored cake must be elegant, with only a hint of sparkle. Lauren's design incorporates snowflakes in all tiers, and some even dangling off the cake. Marianne is dumbfounded. How are they going to hang the dangling snowflakes? Adding to this the dilemma, how does one judge what is "too much" sparkle? In the end, they create a tall, elegant cake with twinkles of rock sugar and dangling snowflakes, truly completing the winter wonderland wedding theme.

A Tale of 3 Cities, Gift Boxes and Rock Climbing Cakes

Apr 17, 2011 Season 4 Episode 4

Robin and her team at Gateaux Inc. are working on a wedding cake for Marissa and Robb. Marissa spent several years in the bright lights of New York City while Robb did the LA thing. Last year both moved back home to Minnesota, and within a month cupid struck. Their 'Tale of 3 Cities' is to be told with the creation of a towering cake depicting the skylines of the NY, LA & Minneapolis. Robin even enlists her handy father-in-law 'Magic Phil' to help her recreate the Minneapolis 'Cherry and Spoon' sculpture. Will this skyscraping cake be too tall an order? At the White Flower Cake Shoppe in Cleveland, Ohio, owners Marianne Carroll and Lauren Bozich have been best friends since 7th grade. The team also includes Marianne's husband, Matt, who is skilled in sculpting. This week, they're working on a wedding cake for Courtney and Brent. Their holiday-themed wedding of ornaments, silver & snowflakes inspired Lauren to design a cake consisting of all these elements, and a huge stack of neatly wrapped black-and-white Christmas presents. The bride insists that the gift-wrapped boxes look like they're wrapped in paper, not fondant! The challenge of using black and silver is that they can stain white fondant. They've also had disasters in the past when black fondant went grey because it was exposed for too long. Solution? Work in the dark! Christopher Garren's bakery works on a groom's cake for Brian, a rock climber from Northern California. His fiancee Sarah wants his Groom's Cake to play up this obsession. Chris suggests a cake that features a 3D human hand emerging from a boulder. In Chris' opinion, "It's tough to make an artistic mountain, the end result always resembles a turd".

Cabin Engagement vs. Lifeguard Engagement Cakes, Beach Weddi...

Apr 10, 2011 Season 4 Episode 3

Kelly and Kristen have come to White Flower Cake Shoppe with a unique request for their engagement cakes. These two sisters, both engaged, have been competing with each other for as long as they can remember, so they keep the competition going by having a double engagement party complete with dueling cakes. Kristen's cake, designed by Marianne, has a woodsy cabin/true love theme, and Kelly's cake, made by Lauren, incorporates the couple's hobbies and the lifeguard chair at the shore where Kelly said "yes." The bakers jump right into the spirit of competition and vie to outdo each other – which of these two incredible cakes will be the best? Anthony and Samantha met, fell in love, and became engaged. But duty called, and the couple decided to quickly marry before Anthony was deployed to Afghanistan. Their last-minute wedding was on Amelia Island, Florida, near Anthony’s Army base – a romantic, simple affair, but without any family from back home in Minnesota. Anthony has returned safely and now he and Samantha want to have a real wedding for their family and friends in Minnesota. Robin of Gateaux convinces them to 'bring the beach' up from Amelia Island and share memories of their vows – sunshine, the sea and sand. But there's an added twist to the celebration - Samantha is pregnant, and only the couple knows the gender of the baby. With her typical flair for cake theatrics, Robin suggests that they make the color of the actual cake under the fondant either blue or pink. So, when the first slice is cut at the party, all their guests will learn whether the couple is having a boy or a girl!

Italian Engagement, Fly to the Moon and Crystal Quilted Cake...

Mar 27, 2011 Season 4 Episode 1

The White Flower Cake Shoppe takes on clients Amanda & Chris, who got engaged in Italy. Co-owner Marianne suggests an Italian-themed wedding cake, and draws the elements, including The Leaning Tower of Pisa, a wheel of cheese, and a wine bottle. Matt takes lead as he is a sculptor by training (but a procrastinator by nature). When the wine bottle cake cracks, he needs a solution, so more experienced bakers Marianne & Lauren come to the rescue and apply fondant detailing. Marianne & Matt successfully deliver the cake to Amanda and Chris, who are thrilled with the results. Now "that's amore"! Christopher Garren meets with Marlon & Christie, who are about to be married, and met while working at NASA. The couple want their cake to have an aerospace theme but not look silly. They also want it romantic along the lines of "Fly Me to the Moon". Chris takes on the sculpture of an intricate dancing couple that will be atop a moon made of crispy rice. Marjie creates pastillage clouds that float. Kristen does the hand painting and sequins that line one tier. Everything is on schedule until...Chris decides to add just "one more" element 15 minutes before they leave. Vinny Buzzetta, the 21-year-old owner of "The Cake Artist" in Staten Island, takes a consultation with Veronica & Mike. This bride is all about bling & bedazzled, while the groom is one of NYC's finest. With 250 family and friends coming, they need a big cake. Vinny suggests five tiers. He says he'll give it a quilted fondant effect and...what about crystal strips running all around the cake? Veronica & Frank leave ecstatic. Everything's going great, until Vinny's girls cut the strips of pricey crystals too short, and now they won't encircle the tiers. Vinny hurries out to deliver it with boyfriend, Spiro. Unfortunately, the route to the New Jersey venue is full of potholes - when they go to unload the cake from the car, will it just be a pile of fondant and crystals??
