Ann is a self-described foodie who loves doing yoga. She definitely has got the moves when it comes to creating a cupcake with a whole lot of flavor going on, including carrots, pineapple, AND chocolate chips. The fiercely competitive Sabrina shows some mad skills by starting her Tombstone Cake on the stove top. Neat trick! It really brings out the flavor of the cocoa, perfuming the whole kitchen.

Both contestants loves to bake, though Sabrina might have the edge, making 1,000 cookies each holiday season. Ann pulled a couple of secret weapons from her bag of ingredients, including lemon juice and orange food coloring for the fun frosting. Gabe doesn't miss a trick, treating viewers to plenty of Halloween-inspired gags, instructing Sabrina to work her magic.

Judges Alli Shircliff, Chef John and Allrecipes Allstar Rosalind Brazel are certainly charmed by the kid-friendly chocolate creations, especially the decorative touches.
