Siblings, from left: Genna, Ty and Natalie Larsen pose with their “Clorox” cake that replicated a bottle of Clorox wipes in their entry for the “Nailed It” challenge with the Weaver-Martin and Artzer families.
The Artzer, Larsen and Weaver-Martin families took on each other from their own homes in a baking challenge. Chris Artzer said his family likes the baking show Nailed It on Netflix – also a favorite of the Larsen family – and the show inspired the battle. The mission? Bake a coronavirus-themed cake. Each household had two and a half hours. Genna, Ty and Natalie Larsen (pictured, from left) created a Clorox cake, which had a white chocolate “wipe” pulled out of the top. Talia and Max Martin designed a toothy-looking coronavirus design to decorate their cake. Isabel, Pia and Tess Artzer created a “Cirque de Solitude” cake sporting a fondant Purell bottle. They shared their photos, and all of the cakes were declared winners. For more on creative cakes during quarantine, see "Baking in Place: Baking Rises During Stay-at-Home Order" by Jennifer Oakley.
