The women continue to sell cupcakes, but they're all selling for $5 or $10, which is a lot for a cupcake, but not a lot for a celebrity cupcake, it seems. Luckily, Claudia forced her friend, Eric Benet, to come and buy a cupcake. He buys two cupcakes at $250 each. Khloe got her friends from the Today show to come down and attract people. Annie's poker friends come down and buy all sorts of $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 cupcakes. Annie tells us how generous poker players are, and Joan gives Annie props, in a deep, tough voice (her imitation of a poker player, I guess, though plenty of them were women who didn't have deep voices at all).
Trump asks someone to get him Herschel and Joan, please. They're all on speakerphone, apparently. Joan calls Trump "sweetheart." Trump tells them he's sending a car for each of them, and that someone from their team should take their best cupcake to Crumbs Bakeshop, where the owner will taste them both and declare a winner. The prize: $15,000. Melissa searches for the best cupcake for her mom, and she compares choosing the best cupcake to Sophie's Choice. Only, you know, yummier. Melissa ends up choosing one of the "bombs" -- the chocolate cupcakes that didn't turn out, but end up being delicious and fudgy. She says she found a "perfect bomb." Herschel puts Dice Clay in charge of choosing the cupcake and lets him go (again throwing him under the bus, obviously, since they have to assume the women will be better bakers).
At Crumbs, the owners introduce themselves. Melissa's cupcake is in a cute box, while Dice Clay is carrying his. He lets her go first. She explains that they had a hard time choosing, but went with what they're calling the "chocolate bomb." Dice Clay says they wanted to go with an old-school cupcake that everyone would like: chocolate frosting on yellow cake, "with some sprinkles to keep it company." The owner tastes both and says she'll let Trump know which one she'll like better. In the car, Dice Clay predicts they win because he saw the owner's eyes light up when she tried his cupcake and not Melissa's. Meanwhile, back at Athena, Annie wants to be sure that Melissa used the vanilla cupcakes with chocolate chips, but Melissa tells her she chose the bomb. Annie says the chef was very clear that the vanilla/chocolate chips were the best, and she can't believe Melissa would have taken "ruined cupcakes." Melissa's sort of apologetic, and you can tell she feels bad, but she says she wasn't in the room when the chef said that (neither were the cameras, I guess, because we didn't see that either), and no one told her. She's afraid this will be used against her in the boardroom.
