Sugar is at the heart of this culinary competition in which some of America's top bakers make jaw-dropping cakes for major entertainment brands. Actor Jonathan Bennett ("Mean Girls") hosts the hourlong episodes that pit four contestants against one another in the baking battle. In the first round, the contestants are tasked with incorporating a surprise ingredient into their recipes. In the next round, they're charged with making cakes that contain three special features that match the theme of that episode's featured event. Pastry chef Waylynn Lucas and cake designer Ron Ben-Israel critique the creative concoctions, joined by guest judges, and determine a winner, based on taste and presentation. The baker that takes home the crown in each episode walks away with the $10,000 grand prize.
