After three rounds of intense challenges testing the baking and business skills of four entrepreneurial bakers, Charlette Bell of Stone Mountain, Georgia, creamed the competition on the premiere of “Bake You Rich,” earning the opportunity of a lifetime to have her dessert sold by the “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro on Carlo's Bakery website.
The winning Amiens Macarons, a twist on a classic macaron mixed with notes of southern flavors, became available for purchase nationwide immediately following the episode.
"Capturing a truly rustic approach in development and showcasing really some strong flavors so vividly made these macarons a homerun for me! I'm thrilled to partner up with Charlette and introduce the country to Amiens Macarons," Valastro said.
“Bake You Rich” continues next Sunday (10 p.m., Food Network), as four new professional bakers compete to prove to Valastro and a panel of rotating advisers (including Chad Durkin, Erin McGinn, Vincent Tubito and Buddy's wife, Lisa Valastro) that their treats will rise to the top. But, only one talented baker will have their dreams come true by the “Cake Boss!”
