Top Chef Just Desserts: Wedding Cake Challenge!

By Azure Nelson, Published Sep 30, 2010

The great wedding cake baker Sylvia Weinstock was the special guest judge on Bravo's Top Chef Just Desserts last night, and it was quite the tasty treat! Contestants were challenged to create a delicious wedding cake, but were given only an hour and a half to complete this task. There were some major flops, some drool-worthy successes, and one contestant who clearly missed the memo... instead of a regal tiered wedding cake, he presented Weinstock with a mini "engagement cake" that was barely enough to feed the bride, let alone the happy just-engaged couple! So, if you had to choose just one for your big day, which one would it be? 1. Cream Cheese Lemon Filling with Strawberries & Pistachios 2. Pistachio Buttercream & Apricot Brandy Filling 3. Mocha Explosion with KahlĂșa Buttercream 4. White Cake with Vanilla Simple Syrup & Nutella Buttercream 5. Lemon & Orange Zest Buttercream 6. Coconut Custard Infused with Cardamom and Vanilla 7. Italian Ice Cream Cake with Coconut, Rum Syrup & Toasted Pecans 8. The Engagement Cake: Caramel Chocolate Mousse with Orange, Marsala, Absinthe & Honey 9. Passion Fruit, Vanilla & Lime Soaked Cake, Vanilla Orange Diplomat Cream 10. Toasted Meringue, Fruit of the Forest Jam, Dark Chocolate Ganache Tell us your pick (1-10) in the comment section below!
