Meet Joshua John Russell
Joshua John Russell is an Atlanta cake artist and popular instructor. He learned baking and pastry arts at Johnson & Wales University, but his elegant and detailed cake designs are all his own. A finalist in Last Cake Standing, he has appeared on the Food Network Challenge 15 times, showing the world cake artistry that is by turns ornate, over-the-top and seriously cool.

Ready to trade in the cake slayin' for a little cake sleighin'? The MAC crew is getting man about the holidays with a unicorn reindeer cake for Joshua's niece. (Okay, so maybe it's not that manly… but hey, he had us at peppermint mocha!)

Every superhero needs a sidekick, even our Caked Crusader. That's why he's teaming up with Horatio Shortening, the Robin to this week's ridiculously cool Fall Buttercream Flower cake. (Plus, don't miss Joshua sharing his secret piping recipe for the first time ever!)
Think there's nothing more terrifying than a giant spider? You haven't heard the crew sing Spice Girls yet! Tune in as the Caked Crusader weaves together a spider-themed Halloween cake, served up with a side of suspect serenading. (If you wanna be my Cake Slayer…)
Looks like all eyes are on Joshua's latest cake… literally! Join the Caked Boo-sader as he combines sweet and spooky in a tier-ifying Halloween cake, complete with airbrushed eyeballs and a few "haunting" pranks from the crew. (P.S. It's James' favorite episode ever!)
Watch Season 5
What happens when pop tart meets pop art? A Man About Cake episode, naturally. Tune in as JJR creates a pop-art inspired cake full on fun 3-D effects and, yes, crushed pop tarts between layers of jam filling. (We swear we didn't raid a college pantry to make this thing.)
This is definitely not a cake about that one show. You know, that show with the dragons... and all the winter? That one everyone seems to be into? Nope, definitely not a cake inspired by that. (But just between us, if you're into that show, you should probably tune in.)
The perfect wedding cake can be a real beach. But our resident cake slayer has you covered with a sweet beach-themed wedding cake, including a crazy-cool technique for making modeling-chocolate oysters. Give it a try! The world is your, well… you know the rest.
