It’s a frosting battle to determine whose sweet confection will take the cake. Gabe and Jake must whip up a batch of cupcake frosting, fill a pastry bag, perfectly pipe frosting onto at least 6 cupcakes and add decoration all in less than 15 minutes. Jake hasn’t made cupcakes in months, yet remains confident that his blue frosting will trump Gabe’s red. And this challenge isn’t so sweet when Gabe encounters some trouble, but will he pull through? And don’t forget, contestants must keep their cooking areas clean.
Chefs Sanchez and Besh will judge each set of cupcakes based on professional appearance, frosting technique and decoration. The winner will earn himself a golden whisk. Jake must win his first golden whisk in order to stay in the running and Gabe, who already holds a whisk, is looking for a second victory.
