We challenged chefs of three different skill levels – amateur LA, home cook Daniel, and professional baker Bill Clark – to make us a festive layer cake. Once each level had finished, decorated and presented their final product, we asked food scientist Rose to explain their choices from an expert’s perspective. Which of these layer cakes do you want at your party?
