Just a hunka hunka frozen love: This Elvis cake is made from -- what else? -- peanut butter and banana.

Soraci's favorite cake, the Green Devil, is made from peanut butter and chocolate cake, with green- and red-dyed white-chocolate ganache. The hair is made up of chocolate modeling paste.

Kerry painstakingly focused on the details of her cakes. Here on the Green Devil, she has molded white-chocolate ganache for teeth and a forked tongue.

The septapus, formerly the octopus, lost an arm in construction. It is made up of peanut butter and chocolate ice cream and and peanut butter and chocolate cake. This was Kerry's most challenging cake.
