'Rewrapped' recap: How'd you make such a Tastykake?

Season 1 | Episode 9 | “Now Krimpet! Krimpet Good!” | Aired June 9, 2014

There are a few foods that just don’t go together. Pickles and chocolate, ice cream and pasta, and fish and butterscotch, to name a few. When it comes to Food Network’s cooking competition shows, however, no combination is off-limits. On the June 9 episode of Food Network’s Rewrapped, two out of three contestants go savory with their innovative creations, and both are surprisingly successful! But before any of that can happen, the contestants have 30 minutes to recreate the Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet.

The sweet snack cake is a favorite in Philadelphia, and Tastykake factories produce 160 million cakes every year. As contestants Jared, Toni and Clint try to recreate the treats, their biggest challenge is the unique shape. The pans are custom-made for Tastykake, but on Rewrapped, the competitors have to find a way to shape the cakes themselves. (The best plan of action comes from Jared, who quickly shapes molds out of heavy-duty aluminum and moves on to rolling out his fondant icing.)

Toni decides to forgo butterscotch chips in favor of vanilla and butter flavoring; it’s a choice that will either push her to first place or plummet her to the bottom of the pile. Judging begins a moment later, so we’ll soon find out!

Jared is up first with a great-tasting cake that’s too dry, and icing that’s too thick. He scores 17 out of 30 points. Meanwhile, Toni’s flavor is spectacular, but her appearance is all off. Still, she scores 23 points. Clint’s Krimpet is the last to be judged, and it’s too crispy, so he also scores 17 out of 30. Toni leads the two men as the contestants move on to round 2.

For at least the second time on Rewrapped, a contestant is taking his or her sweet treat and turning it in to fried chicken and waffles. It’s a gimmick, sure, but it always looks delicious, so we can’t really fault them. Jared’s fried chicken isn’t the only savory dish, however. Clint is across the kitchen, cooking up a pan-roasted mahi-mahi with butterscotch croquettes.

As the judges point out, fish and butterscotch are two ingredients you never expect to hear together, but we’ll just have to wait to find out if it works. If Clint can get the fish to cook, that is. After struggling to get a pan hot enough, he moves his mahi-mahi from stove to oven — and still fails to get enough heat going as the commercial break comes on.

Toni, a baker, is playing to her strengths with a dessert innovation, turning the Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet into a salted butterscotch caramel bourbon bar. One word: YUM.

We learn another fun fact about Krimpets — Tastykake ships in 2,400 gallons of milk every week to make the butterscotch snack cake — and then it’s on to final judging. Jared’s fried chicken is up first, and it looks delicious. Marc seems to like the taste too, but it’s predictably too sweet and the waffle is too savory. With only 21 out of 30 points, he’s probably not taking home the grand prize.

Next up is Toni, and host Joey Fatone sums up her dish perfectly: “Anything goes good with bourbon!” Her flavors are good, but the judges are disappointed with her presentation. In this case, playing to her bakery strengths may result in harsher judging. Toni scores a 22 out of 30, putting her in first place as the judges move on to Clint.

Clint’s dish is “fantastic,” and Marc Summers has “zero complaints,” so it looks like fish and butterscotch really can go together! He needs 29 points to win, and only scores enough to tie. With 28 points for round 2, it’s up to the judges to confer and choose a winner. As they discuss who “wowed” them, they don’t once mention the recreate round. With that in mind, it’s pretty clear that the winner will be the person who scored 28, not 22, in the second round.

The announcement comes, and Clint is the winner! He heads home with a year’s supply of Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets — and bragging rights, of course.

Next week on Rewrapped, the contestants take on Wise Cheez Waffies, a snack food that host Joey Fatone told us he had never even heard of before the show began. To see more of Joey’s thoughts on the show, check out his EW Community interview.

Rewrapped airs on Mondays at 8/7 C on Food Network.
