‘Next Great Baker’ Episode Guide (Aug. 5): Building Gravity Defying Cakes

“Gravity Defying Cakes” (08/05/14) – The bakers are tasked with creating gravity-defying cakes. While the competitors struggle to keep the cakes upright, more pressure is put on them when they learn that their cakes will be featured on the “Rachael Ray Show.”

Bourgeoning bakers are back with the most impressive cake creations to date in season four of “Next Great Baker,” airing Tuesday nights at 9/8c on TLC. Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro is joined for the first time this season by two permanent judges, famed chocolatier Jacques Torres and Magnolia Bakery’s Chief Baking Officer Bobbie Lloyd, as they search for best of the best of confection-obsessed competitors.

This season also adds a new level of drama as the competitors are working in teams of two – all for a chance to work for Buddy at the new Carlo’s Bakery at The Venetian in Las Vegas and to capture a grand prize of $100,000.

Upcoming episodes include a candy-themed challenge judged by Dylan’s Candy Bar owner, Dylan Lauren; a wedding cake extravaganza, judged by Sean and Catherine Lowe from ABC’s “The Bachelor”; a life-sized cake recreation of TLC’s Theresa Caputo judged by the “Long Island Medium” herself; a spooky, sweet challenge judged by “Freddie Krueger” himself, actor Robert Englund; a trip to Rachael Ray’s talk show for an audience-judged challenge; and many more cake competitions that push the boundaries and test the limits of bakery perfection.

“Next Great Baker” is produced by High Noon Entertainment for TLC.
