* CompletelyMissingThePoint: In one episode a challenger decided to make their "Blue Velvet" cupcakes (many bakers on the show make red velvet in hopes Florian will enjoy it, since he has said he hates most red velvet). However, ones of the reasons Florians hates red velvet is the food coloring used to make them red, with blue velvet just basically being a red velvet recipe with blue food dye in it (making the reason Florian hates it even more obvious).

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Florian hates Red Velvet Cake for a number of reasons (most commonly its due to HypeBacklash due to the explosive popularity of red velvet when Florian doesn't think its deserving of so much attention). As a result, quite a few bakers will make a red velvet cupcake just for the chance of getting a rare red velvet stamp of approval from Florian.

** To be fair, the contestant was known to use beer in her cupcakes. This wasn't some surprise to the producers, the judges, or anyone. They brought her in knowing what ingredient she'd be using in her stuff. And then they placed her in that episode. Her inclusion in that theme was indeed a case of TooDumbToLive but it was more on the Producers, rather than on The contestant.

Added DiffLines:

* BaconAddiction: It can be found in challenges every once in a while. Subverted, since making a ''sweet cupcake'' using bacon as either garnish, frosting or as part of the cake is not as easy as it seems, as it can turn out greasy instead. Most of the bakers use it for savory cupcakes or with apple or maple syrup.


Added DiffLines:

* RealMenWearPink: Considering that most of the contestants are female, the few men in the competition tend to comment about the contrast between them. Particularly, ''Bruce's Bakery'' was a military-themed team. Another contestant mentioned the irony that he, a [[FaceOfAThug tattooed motorbike type of guy]], loves to make cute cupcakes.

** One assistant in the Poker episode warned the primary baker against making a Red Velvet cupcake because of this, but was ignored. Ironically, [[spoiler: they were sent home for every cupcake ''but'' the Red Velvet, which Florian and Candace sincerely enjoyed]].
