Congratulations to Next Great Baker winner Marissa Lopez, the season two champion of TLC's reality-TV show. Thirteen aspiring bakers competed for a grand prize that included $100,000, an apprenticeship with Buddy (the Cake Boss himself), and a spread in the June issue of BRIDES magazine. Contestants Marissa Lopez (from New Jersey) and runner-up Nadine Reibeling (originally from Minnesota) were left to battle it out in the last challenge.

If you missed any of the action, here's a video from the challenge that took place in the BRIDES fashion closet. (We may be biased, but we think it was the best one!) You can also find out more information about the three dresses featured in that episode—vintage romance, fantasy princess, and Hollywood glam—if you're still shopping for a gown.

Thanks to our Facebook fans for chiming in with some questions they wanted to ask her.
