The series emphasizes the art and skill required for creative (and tasty) food and pastry preparation.
During some competitions, chefs use blow torches and other construction tools to build their cakes. Some of the more interactive desserts spin and smoke; during one competition, a cake accidentally caught fire.
Names/titles of certain food items occasionally include the term "sexy."
Contestants occasionally swear in frustration, but the words are completely bleeped.
Some of the competitions are sponsored by food companies like Wilson's and Pillsbury. Some of the baking competitions feature themed shows with characters from movies like The Little Mermaid, TV shows like The Simpsons, The Ringling Bros., and other pop culture media.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol is sometimes used in food preparation. On rare occasions, a person will be seen drinking a beer or a glass of wine or champagne at an outdoor competition.
