After the butterflies have settled, Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart is ready to take on some more challenging tasks. Can these bakers “bee” adaptable?
In the Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart premiere, the bakers tackled some classic summer desserts. While some bakers showed a creativity in these outdoor kitchens, the elements could become a factor in creating a perfect dessert. To wow Martha and the judges, the excuses need to be overshadowed by impressive desserts.
According to the Food Network, this week’s Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart “Bee Happy Campers” features the following:
"The five remaining campers wake up to mail call, and host Jesse Palmer delivers postcards from home that reveal two ingredients — one sweet and one savory — that the bakers must incorporate into a mouthwatering dessert for their first challenge. Camp counselors Carla Hall and Dan Langan decide which baker delivers the winning dessert and earns a one-on-one mentoring session with Martha Stewart at her farm. The winner gets Martha’s personal tips and tricks on how to make decorative pies, and then in the Camp Director’s Challenge, the campers have two hours to make their most beautifully decorated pie. When swarms of bees threaten the challenge, who will come out on top? Martha joins the counselors to choose the best pie and send another camper packing."
Tackling a sweet and savory dish takes a deft hand. When this type of dish is balanced, the flavors can be impressive. If sweet or savory overpowers the other flavors, the recipe will need a redux.
Adding a touch of savory to a dessert can keep it light. No one wants to end a meal on a complete sugar bomb. That savory flavor can help keep everything in balance.
For the Camp Director’s Challenge, pies are always a difficult Food Network challenge. While no one wants a soggy bottom, these challenges are more than the perfect crust.
While the challenge focuses on a beautifully decorated pie, the flavor needs to be on point. Even the prettiest pie will not impress if the flavors are bad. These bakers better understand that eating with your eyes is only an expression.
Since this Food Network competition is as much about handling the elements as it is about the perfect dessert, the swarm of bees is quite concerning. Even if no one is allergic to bees, no one wants to get stung during a challenge. That situation could send someone home before than judging.
Who will survive this buzzing challenge and who will be sent home? Here’s how to watch this episode of Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart.
