Los Angeles In Cakes

Neiman Marcus Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA 1

Have you ever seen those cake shows where normal bakers are tasked with wild challenges like making a replica of something only with desserts? You know those shows! There are a ton of them and they all have their own charms.

When we were asked to participate, we immediately thought game on and went into Top Chef mode, planning to take each other down in a Quickfire Challenge. We set a full Sunday aside to prepare and make the dishes and found a great venue and audience for it (AKA, family) and set out to make two dishes that would flaunt the ingredients—but also put up a good foodie fight. If you’ve been missing Top Chef, get ready for a very LA competition along with a few recipes told through photos.
