Beginning on Monday, April 30th at 10:30pm ET/PT, Food Network premieres "Dallas Cakes" on Monday, April 30th. The series will follow the best Dallas-area bakers as they transform their clientele's wildest imaginations into extraordinary customized confections. In each of the ten half-hour episodes, three outrageously talented bakers conceive, create and deliver incredible, edible works of art using Cake, frosting, incredible imagination and skill.
From an impressive Game of Thrones wedding cake featuring an intricate cake topper of a dragon wrapped around the iron throne, to a Back to the Future DeLorean car cake with working headlights, and to a gigantic oil derrick cake that spews chocolate, these Dallas Cakes are always top tier.
"Viewers devour our baking-themed Monday night line-up, and Dallas Cakes is the cherry on top of our dessert-filled programming," said Courtney White, Senior Vice President, Programming, Food Network, Travel Channel and Cooking Channel. "Audiences will be captivated by the expert baking techniques and decorating skills used in every detail of these unique, jaw-dropping cakes - each one living up to Dallas' larger-than-life reputation."

Dragons and Belt Buckles, Oh My!
A groom's cake with a Game of Thrones theme isn't complete without a sculpted ice dragon and an intricately carved Iron Throne. The ultimate block party celebrates Chinese New Year with a cake so over the top it literally smokes. Then, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Fort Worth Stockyards Championship Rodeo, 24 layers of cowboy coffee cake are turned into the world's largest belt buckle, and the real question is whether it will hold up to being delivered right to the arena floor.

Officers and Alligators Cake
The artists at Frosted Art Bakery roll up their sleeves to create a five-foot alligator cake that's so lifelike it could have crawled right out of the swamp. Later, Society Bakery proudly shows their appreciation for one of Dallas' finest with a police badge cake that replicates the retiring officer's shield. Finally, young gun baker Dylan Humphrey crafts a giant golf cart cake that looks realistic enough to take for a spin.
