Frosted Art Bakery & Studio Executive Chef Bronwen Weber becomes undisputed queen of the baking jungle with eighth gold medal win from Food Network Challenge

Bronwen Weber's winning cake from Food Network Challenge: Lion King Cakes

The Lion King characters are very familiar to people, so every detail had to be perfect.

Bronwen Weber, Frosted Art Bakery & Studio's Executive Chef, was crowned the winner of Food Network Challenge: Lion King Cakes which aired on Sunday, September 25. The win marked her 14th medal from the Food Network Challenges (more than any other contestant), as well as her eighth gold (first place) medal, which is three more than the second best challenger.

As part of the competition, Weber and three other cake designers were challenged with transforming scenes from the Disney classic The Lion King into edible works of art. Weber's design featured the film's villain, Scar, and the hyenas in a dark, scary cave scene, with a bubbling sugar moat under lit by remote controlled LED lights. The cake was another one of Bronwen's signature cantilevered engineering marvels; the laughing hyenas swirled and rotated while sinister smoke enveloped them.

"This was a really fun challenge, and I'm thrilled to win," says Weber. "The Lion King characters are very familiar to people, so every detail had to be perfect."

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, Monday, September 26 at 7:00 PM ET/PT. For more details, visit
