It isn’t déjà vu on Buddy vs Duff Season 3 episode 3, but the outcome of this cake challenge might be different. As the two baking teams take on car cakes, only one team will roll to a resounding victory.

According to Food Network, Buddy vs Duff, Season 3 episode 3, “Sweet Rides” features the following:

"Buddy Valastro and Duff Goldman revisit their first challenge from season one by making car cakes. Duff seeks redemption with a better version of his original lowrider, and Buddy takes the challenge for a new spin with a convertible ’57 Chevy."

Fans of this Food Network show might recall the challenge from Buddy vs Duff Season 1. While certain patterns have emerged in this baking competition show, the comparison between this season and the previous one should be very different.

One aspect that Duff always likes to try is some type of special element. While the water effect did not work in the recent Ancient Worlds challenge, Duff is never afraid to keep trying. As seen in preview clips, the low rider effect might cause trouble again.

Looking back at the first two episodes, it is hard to find a pattern or a potential element that could give one team an advantage over another. The biggest element that impressed the judges was the details. From the facial expression of the gladiator from Buddy to the face of the lion from Duff, those little elements might be the difference between point totals.

Give that the competition is a cumulative effort, one misstep might be the end of the competition. Just like the past two seasons, it will come down to the final challenge. Even if there is a bump in the road in this challenge, there could be smooth sailing ahead.
