On the Season 7 MasterChef Junior episode “Quacking Under Pressure,” the top 14 junior home cooks must learn to butcher a whole duck. Reid, in his hunting camouflage baseball hat, looks the most ready for the task at hand. After that tough mystery box challenge, the young cooks will work in pairs to make a dozen cupcakes. Of course, they must impress professional baker and MasterChef Junior judge Christina Tosi, who dresses for the occasion by slipping into a magical skirt holding dozens of cupcakes (see photo below).
The winning pair of junior cooks, the two who make the most delectable cupcakes, will have their recipe published in the MasterChef Junior Cookbook! MasterChef Junior airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on FOX.
