‘Shedding’ Couples Compete for Wedding Cake

Winning confection perfection for their reception will literally be the icing on the cake for one lucky calorie-conscious couple competing in the second episode of Shedding for the Wedding, the new CW series which pits pound-trimming pairs against the scale and each other for the chance at the I do’s of their dreams.

Before the challenge champions literally take the cake, the eight remaining teams will get a taste of the dessert delights offered by Jamaica’s Cakes, the Los Angeles-based bakery which will award the winner with their chosen wedding cake.

Familiar with the realm of reality TV from her own experiences on TLC’s Ultimate Bake Off and Ultimate Cake Boss, Jamaica’s Cakes proprietor Jamaica Crist has created sweet treats seen on Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Platinum Wedding.

Along with cupcakes, pies and cookies, Jamaica’s Cakes have concocted wedding cakes for a bevy of brides and grooms, with fresh flowers from Jamaica Crist’s own garden providing a personal touch to many of the edible works of art.
