Round One: Desserts
Round 1 Star Baker
Congratulations to the Round 1 Star Baker: Mychella Daily! The judges, Pupcakes Bakery Chef & Owner Richard Edwards and Recreation Commissioner and local baker Sharon Radtke, called Mychella's work "beautiful, impressive, and outstanding" with a "good texture & flavor combo" and the "WOW factor".
Eliminated Round 1
Unfortunately we have to say goodbye to four bakers this round. Bakers Brooke Commo, Danielle Brigham, Michael Chouinard, and Susan Gardecki have been eliminated but should be very proud of what they accomplished!
12 Chocolate Desserts
Bakers may create any dessert they like, but there must be 12 and the star ingredient must be chocolate. Bakers must take care that all desserts be the same size. This is a chance to show off their favorite recipes and creativity.
The pie can be of any flavor and type (fruit, custard, etc.), but must be a dessert pie. The pie should be pleasantly decorated – this is the Showstopper Challenge! Bakers must take care that their pie is evenly baked – no soggy bottoms!
