FLORISSANT, MO (KTVI)-- The winners of the TLC Show "Next Great Baker" come from a cake shop in Florissant.

Al Watson is known for baking a pretty good cake, but now sometimes he’s busy signing autographs.

Awesome is a word to describe the win for Watson and Lia Weber, co-workers at Wedding Wonderland in Florissant.

From February through April, the co-workers competed in New York to win the $100,000 prize.

At Wedding Wonderland, owner Michael Timm and his employees are known for being a fondant free bakery, they like their sweet cream icing.

Besides winning the $100,000, Al and Lia are also waiting on an offer to run Buddy Valestro's Bakery in Las Vegas.

The team's current cake boss says he'll match the offer or beat it because a great baker is a good thing to have in your North County kitchen.
