The winner gets an advantage in the second round, where the contestants are given a longer time frame to make a large, theme-centric confection. The lowest performer is eliminated while the safe bakers move to the next episode. In the finale, the last-remaining contestants compete for the cash prize of $25,000 and a spot In Food Network Magazine.
