The cake, featured on the second episode of the season, was five feet long and had scales, claws, and a jaw with an open mouth to showcase teeth made from white modeling chocolate. The inspiration for the cake came from the groom, who grew up feeding alligators on his family's farm in Arkansas.
“The hardest part about an alligator is getting the coloring right,” the bakers say in a promotional clip that was posted to Instagram.
