I really liked the premise for the Elimination Challenge: creating an anniversary cake for cake guru Silvia Weinstock and her husband's 61st anniversary party. The chefs were to draw inspiration from the sweet story Mr. Weinstock told them about how they met back in the olden days. Unfortunately, none of the chefs put out anything really stellar. They either looked good but didn't taste so great (or fell apart, in Yigit's case), or they looked like a "cake wreck" (according to Zac) and tasted great. Zac's looked especially horrid. If Twister were interpreted in cake form, that would be Zac's anniversary cake.
In the end, they picked the lesser of four evils. I won't reveal who won, though I was very surprised, but I will say that I was elated that it wasn't Morgan. As for the loser, Just Desserts will be sorely missing its disco dust for the final two episodes.

[image-1]Whether you watch the show or not, our review of it is top notch snark and an all-around good time. Listen to us (attempt to) recap this episode and the hilarity that ensues.
The Quickfire saw the chef'testants preparing four truffles that represented their lives: people who are important to them and their "golden moment" (the winner's then being made and sold by Godiva). After bitching about how little time they had to prepare them, they got to work and made some crazy — some crazy-good, others just crazy-looking — truffle treats. Though Danielle's looked pre-chewed, she still managed to do better than Yigit who only had three prepared for the judges. Morgan's truffles looked the best, which is partially why he won, but I'm sure were just as bitter as the emotions that went into them.
