TLC's Next Great Baker, a spin-off of Buddy Valastro's Cake Boss series debuting December 6, will feature Brian Stevens of Austin's Crazy Cakes Inc. Stevens will compete against nine other pastry chefs from across the country for a $50,000 prize and a chance to work at Valastro's Carlos' Bakery in New Jersey. Also? If he could be any ingredient, it would be butter. Stevens explains in his audition video below, in addition to showing off some of his crazier productions, including a Gollum cake and a wedding cake that features a bride and groom crawfish in a pot. Slightly NSFW for some language.
