Spring means it is time to get fruity. For the pre-heat challenge, eight talented bakers undertake a shortcake makeover, but for a twist, they cannot use the classic springtime fruit – berries. Then the tables are turned in the main-heat, when they must create a naked cake with berries as the main fruit flavor. The contestant whose cake is not berry tasty will be sent home.

The seven remaining bakers are taking you out to the ball game. For the pre-heat they bake sweet treats made from classic ballpark treats such as popcorn, nachos, and soft pretzels. For the main-heat, they attempt to make BBQ impostor desserts, where they look like BBQ but taste like dessert. Who will hit a home run and who will strike out of the competition?

Bake the Rainbow
Spring showers bring May flowers… and rainbows! In the pre-heat, the bakers must whip up a delicious dessert dip to fill the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. For the main-heat, they will be challenged to create a colorful rainbow-themed dessert in order to stay in the game. Unfortunately, it is not rainbows and sunshine for one contestant when they are eliminated.

Sweet Toothed Farmer

The best way to show you care is with a homemade gift. In this pre-heat, the bakers must make stunning Mother’s Day gift desserts inspired by classic Mother’s Day gifts.
