Season 6 begins shortly after Hurricane Sandy hits the East Coast in October 2012, as Buddy and his crew return to Carlo's to survey the damage and wonder how to fill clients' orders with no electricity.
A life-size, wedding-dress cake is requested by a bridal shop, and the owners will give a free dress to the bride who can find a golden coin hidden inside. Meanwhile, Buddy bakes cakes for a cake-smash photo shoot.
Buddy creates a ski-mountain cake—with a working chairlift—to be delivered for a birthday celebration at a resort in the Catskill Mountains. Meanwhile, Ashley's "Next Great Baker" nemesis, Paul, shows up after losing everything in Hurricane Sandy.
