DC Universe Online Artist Now Tries Competitive Cake Making

Kotaku has a proud history of showcasing the artistic intersection of video games and cakes, so it's no surprise who our favorite contestant is "Cake Boss: Next Great Baker." Meet Brian Stevens, senior artist at Sony Online Entertainment.

CB:NGB premiered on Monday and Brian survived the first round, so here's hoping this post isn't a kiss of death. In addition to working on DC Universe Online (and several other games), Brian also owns Crazy Cakes of Austin, Texas.

Asked why he's the next great baker, Brian laid the smack down: "My work is insanely detailed and you just do not see other designers doing what I am doing."

Brian didn't win the first round of the competition, but neither did he have one of the three worst cakes or get booted from the show. Cake Boss: Next Great Baker is an 8-week series airing Mondays on TLC at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST.
