I was up against some tough competitors and even tougher judges, but the most important part is that the clients were happy with the end result.
Dallas, TX (Vocus) March 23, 2010
Bronwen Weber, Frosted Art Bakery & Studio's Executive Chef, was crowned the winner of the Food Network Challenge "Incredible Anniversary Cakes" which aired on Sunday, March 21. As part of the competition, Weber and three other cake designers set out to capture the essence of a 50-year marriage in a single culinary concoction. Weber's design of cantilevered layers created a wedding cake out of the negative space surrounding them. The expert judges and the anniversary couple concurred that Bronwen's cake most represented their life-long commitment. The cake was finished in metallic colors because the couple had said they liked them and was festooned with pajamas since they had met at a PJ party.
"It's a huge honor to win the Food Network Challenge," says Weber. "I was up against some tough competitors and even tougher judges, but the most important part is that the clients were happy with the end result."
In addition to the title of champion cake maker, Weber also received $10,000 for her winning creation. The Food Network Challenge will air again on Wednesday, March 24 at 7:00 PM ET/PT.

She has won countless Grand Prize, Gold Medal, and Best of Show distinctions in numerous competitions, including Food Network challenges, the American Culinary Federation, and various cake shows around the country.
