Wedding Cake Championship

Contestants Traci Rankins and Erik Rankins, during the Cake Round, Wedding Cake For Andrea and Jared, as seen on Wedding Cake Championship, Season 2.

GREENSBORO — The owners of a Greensboro bakery will be competing on a televised baking competition — again.

Erik and Traci Rankins, owners and operators of Easy Peasy Decadent Desserts at 1616 Battleground Ave. will appear on the Food Network show "Wedding Cake Championship."

The show pits six duos from across America in an elimination-style baking competition. Each episode challenges the bakers with a different theme of wedding cake.

This is not the couple's first time on a televised competition. The Rankins were contestants on the show “Sugar Showdown” on the Cooking Channel in 2016. Prior to that, one of the bakery’s former bakers appeared on the show “Cake Wars.”

Easy Peasy is no stranger to challenges of wedding cake creation. Last summer, the bakery created a life-size cake in the shape of a wedding dress for their booth at the Carolina Weddings Show at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.

The bakery also created a life-size cake in the shape of a pair of jeans for Jeansboro Day two years ago.

"Wedding Cake Championship" airs at 10 p.m. June 3. (Information has been corrected to fix an error. See correction at end of story. 4 p.m. May 30, 2019)
