As much as we here at Bites like to think that we're on top of pop culture, sometimes things slip past us when it comes to television cooking shows. I mean, dang, there's just so many of them. We totally spaced the guy from Gallatin who won Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell. Congrats to Chef Tully for winning the chance to work with Todd English and the opportunity to travel the world.

Our next chance to say "we knew him when" comes 8 p.m. Monday on TLC when Waverly, Tenn. cake artist Garrett Wallace competes on the premiere of season 3 of Next Great Baker. Buddy "Cake Boss" Valastro has chosen 13 crafty cake artists to compete for a prize of $100,000, a feature in Redbook magazine and a chance to work side-by-side with Buddy and his team at Carlo's Bakery. This bakers' dozen of bakers will participate in 10 weeks' worth of competitions, which will be judged by celebrities like Lou Ferrigno (Hulk smash cake!), Peter Billingsley, Holly Madison and Joey Fatone.

Wallace bakes cakes under the nom de cuisine "The Fabulous Baker Boy," and you can view his work at a Tumblr page set up to show off his creativity. If that Angry Birds cake is any indication, he should be able to hang in this competition. Best of luck, Garrett!
