Buddy and his panel of judges will make decisions on the judging of the cakes. They will pick the best of the cakes and the worst of the cakes. After Buddy and the panel of judges have made their decisions, they will gather all of the contestants together. They talk about the cakes and tell those that did well what was good about their creations and then they are sent away so that only those that did poorly remain in the room with the panel of judges. Then they revel which contestant did the most poorly and send the one who did the worst away.
