Wednesdays 7 PM

Ultimate Cake Off  sees host chef, TV personality and author George Duran and Margaret Braun, an acclaimed sugar artist based in New York, and Leigh Grode, owner of Los Angeles' Cake Divas bakery, return as judges.Each episode pits three different cake artists against each other as they create edible masterpieces in the hope of winning $10,000 and having their cakes featured at a marquee event.

With only nine hours, these competitors must make cakes that are at least five feet tall and are creative enough to win the taste of the client and take the prize. To add to the pressure, the contestants also face two mini-challenges - a skills test and a taste test. In the first episode three cake decorators compete to create the ultimate winter wonderland wedding cake. They have nine hours to make their incredibly inventive and unique cake designs come to life.
