'Last Cake Standing' is no cakewalk

Ruskell Richard Ruskell, the pastry chef at the Montage Resort in Beverly Hills, will be in the mix when Food Network's "Last Cake Standing" returns Sunday for its second season. The series challenges eight of America's pastry chefs to create different cakes each week as they battle for a $100,000 grand prize and the title of "Best Cake Artist in America."

The premiere will showcase monster cakes, and episodes follow with cakes that will sing and dance for a talent show, display illusions inspired by Sin City and more. It sounds fun, right? That's exactly what Ruskell thought when he signed up. "It was great," he said of the experience now, "Something I'll always remember. But it was hard. It was really hard."

Are you planning to watch "Last Cake Standing"?
