*** Slightly averted with a chef being unable to plate a mandatory ingredient. While this is a serious offense, Ron will allow them to go through to the next round if their flavors and creativity manage to surpass at least one of the other competitors' efforts.

''Sweet Genius'' is a competition show on Creator/FoodNetwork, in the style of ''Series/IronChef'' and ''{{Chopped}}''. Master pastry chef Ron Ben-Israel, an internationally recognized expert on pastries, is the host who presents a challenge to four dessert chefs. The competing chefs get three rounds -- Frozen, Baked and Chocolate (for season 1) or Chocolate, Candy, and Cake (from season 2 on) -- to wow Ben-Israel and show they are truly sweet geniuses. To make the challenge more difficult, they are also presented with a "bewildering" inspiration and two to three unusual mandatory ingredients. The first mandatory ingredient and the inspiration come just before the round starts, ''{{Chopped}}''-style. The 2nd (and 3rd in early seasons) ingredients are then introduced one at a time throughout the prep, forcing the chefs to adjust their dessert on the fly. If they win, they receive Chef Ron's recognition as a sweet genius and $10,000. If they fail... well, they are no sweet genius.

* TookALevelInKindness: In season 1, Chef Ron wasn't exactly a jerk, but he was very serious, strict and down-to-business. Starting with season 2, he's become more relaxed, more detailed with his judging, and is clearly having a lot of fun and enjoying himself, also wanting the chefs to enjoy the experience and have fun too.
