The next team is up and Sally is worried about getting her sorbet, but then she does. Phew! I can't handle the drama! I need a Xanax. Craig introduces his team and his willingness to go all out on the color palette. Seriously, it looks like Strawberry Shortcake went suicide bomber and there is pink everywhere. Sally goes first and she talks really quickly so that she can describe her dessert before it melts. It's a chocolate and raspberry tarte nouveau with a ganache and lychee sorbet and maybe a macaron, too? I can't be certain because I am distracted by the horrors of melting sorbet. Hugh Acheson can't help but mention that her sorbet is melting. What is it with this guy? Oatmeal cookies are sweet; sorbet melts. I'm changing his name to Captain Obvious. Sally grimaces in horror. Matthew introduces his white chocolate cherry and pistachio entremet. What is an entremet? I don't know, but it looks like a cake with a pyramid alongside it? Sort of looks like a Masonic Temple so it probably tastes good but has an undercurrent of dark magic. Nelson made a passionfruit cheesecake lollipop topped with cotton candy. Lisa looks doubtful that she can fit the lollipop in her mouth and even more doubtful that she should try. So she turns to Taylor because there is no doubt in anyone's mind that Taylor can shove two or three of these pink puppies in her mouth. To eliminate any doubt, the producers kindly give us a montage of Taylor sticking large pink objects in her mouth. The girl knows how to eat cotton candy, that's for sure. I hope she puts that in the skills section of her resume. Craig contributed pink lemonade with a pink cava gelee and a sugared rim. In pink, of course. It's pretty to look at, but is a bitch on the lip gloss. Don't you consider your audience at all, Craig? Do you hate people, Craig? Or just Real Housewives? Next up is Rebecca's contribution: A chocolate beet cake with orange sauce. Everyone grimaces at the description, but ends up liking the combination. The last dish of the day is also Rebecca's. It's a rhubarb rose crisp meant to remind Lisa of the desserts of her childhood. Lisa says Rebecca's crumble is her favorite dessert of the day, which makes Rebecca's self esteem rise and rise.
