Too Much Ambition and Dry Cake Dooms One on 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (VIDEO)

'Top Chef: Just Desserts'The contestants were arbitrarily split into four teams of three on this week's 'Top Chef: Just Desserts' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo). For the elimination challenge they were tasked with creating a three-layer cake to celebrate opening night for the Walt Disney Orchestra. Each team member would be responsible for one layer of the cake.

A lack of communication led to one cake having two chocolate layers, while it was Vanison who got overly ambitious and pushed his team in a more intricate direction than they were comfortable with. More critically, it was an ambition they could not live up to.

He had them creating instruments which wound up looking juvenile and amateurish, cheapening the look of the entire dessert. Then, he committed the cardinal sin by overcooking his layer a bit, leaving it dry. No one likes a dry cake, and Vanison paid the ultimate price for it, being eliminated from the competition.
