Brian calls on Stephanie to look after the girls, but when a crisis occurs, he realizes that Laura is the one he should have asked to help. And after Nicole and Deena's Icing on the Cupcake store starts getting great press, an overwhelmed Nicole finds herself alone and without any help to tend to the many new customers.
