The contestants were arbitrarily split into four teams of three on this week's 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo). For the elimination challenge they were tasked with creating a three-layer cake to celebrate opening night for the Walt Disney Orchestra. Each team member would be responsible for one layer of the cake.
A lack of communication led to one cake having two chocolate layers, while it was Vanison who got overly ambitious and pushed his team in a more intricate direction than they were comfortable with. More critically, it was an ambition they could not live up to.
