I was happy to see Karina win, and she deserved it. Saber looked a little piqued during the first challenge when everyone gushed over her eggs, but they were beautiful. The fudge in the middle was genius.
Saber essentially made Peeps, but I'd actually eat his.
I think some of the front-runners fell from their pedestals though. Corey's been pretty solid so far, but his desserts confused me- what was that granola crunch egg? And the rice pudding in the cake?
And dear God, Ricardo's primary-colored hat thing. I really thought he was going home with that mess. The inside looked good and must have tasted incredible, because the outside was hideous. I do think the judges looked back on his overall work so far, and that's what saved him.
Marqessa fell apart right out of the gate and never got back up. I didn't think her hats were awful, but there wasn't anything outstanding enough to save them, either.
Tracey seems to fall mostly in the lower tier, but she's still holding on.
