Provo's The Mighty Baker wins "Cake Wars"

Peter Tidwell, the culinary mind behind The Mighty Baker in Provo, won first place on an episode of Food Network’s “Cake Wars” Monday night. Tidwell took home a grand prize of $10,000.

The episode’s theme was the popular X-box video game “Halo.” Tidwell, a BYU alum, and his assistant competed in three rounds of creating “Halo”-inspired cakes to impress judges Ron-Ben Israel, Waylynn Lucas and guest judge Larry Hyrb, Microsoft’s director of programming.

In addition to earning the title of “Cake Wars” champion and heading home with a hefty cash prize, Tidwell and his cake creation were also featured at the 2016 Halo World Championships in Los Angeles.

Tidwell’s winning cake was a chocolate brownie pound cake with an Italian buttercream. He is selling this flavor cake by-the-slice at his Provo storefront.

The Mighty Baker is located at 50 E 500 N in Provo.
