Wedding bells were ringing as contestants on TLC's "Next Great Baker" vied for last week's prize: a photo feature in BRIDES magazine.

Lincoln Place paramedic Megan Hart -- working with her team on a pink, girly girl cake -- kept a relatively low profile on this episode. Apparently some of her fellow bakers had been taken aback by her outspokenness in earlier encounters.

Her team captain for the wedding cake challenge, Jasmine Frank of Los Angeles, said off camera that she chose Mrs. Hart to more or less put her in her place. That didn't work so well.

Ms. Frank, 20, turned out to have a higher opinion of herself than even host/head judge Buddy Valastro could stomach, and when the cake didn't measure up, she was sent home in tears.

Next up: baking for Christmas!

Chainsaw sculpters

Probably the world's most dangerous art comes to television next month with "Saw Dogs." A group of chainsaw artists will tackle the frightening task of turning large pieces of wood into carved bears and the like, under the pressure of a time deadline (as if it weren't risky already).

Ken Tynan, who lives in both Butler County and Iowa, is one of the artists. Buck Productions of Toronto created the series, which will premiere 8 p.m. Jan. 7 on Velocity, a Discovery Communications all-HD channel.
