TLC SWEETENS UP MONDAY NIGHTS WITH THE RETURN OF "FABULOUS CAKES"
New Episodes Premiere Monday Nights at 10 PM ET/PT Beginning on November 22
Get ready for more bakeries, more cities and most importantly...more fabulous cakes! On Monday, November 22 at 10 PM ET/PT, TLC serves up a second season of FABULOUS CAKES with ten all-new one-hour episodes each showcasing the country's top bakeries specializing in extravagant custom cakes. This season, in addition to an array of stunning designs ranging from eatable dinosaurs to a princess tea party theme, each new episode will also feature a wedding cake design.
In each episode of FABULOUS CAKES, viewers visit a new area of the country to witness the creation of three extraordinary custom cakes. Some of the best pastry chefs in the world share their tips and techniques as they conceive, construct, and deliver cakes that take the art of pastry above and beyond your everyday dessert. The second season of FABULOUS CAKES continues to tour the United States in search of culinary creations and features bakeries in Las Vegas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and The Carolinas.
In the season premiere, three bakeries in Las Vegas create over-the-top cakes for special occasions. At the Luxor Hotel and Casino, chef Derek Franceschini and his team create a gigantic lunar cake for astronaut Buzz Aldrin by recreating his historic landing with a 600-pound moon replica and lunar landing module. Chefs Megan Hirdman and Alexa Alberto, of Queensridge Bakery, make a fairy tale fantasy wedding cake, complete with a towering castle and a mote with swans. At Freed's Bakery of Las Vegas, Max Jacobsen-Fried constructs a colossal replica of the Las Vegas strip for a mother and son joint birthday celebration.
FABULOUS CAKES is produced by LMNO Cable Group, Inc. for TLC.
