We had the cutest chef, Sofie Tate, on the show today. This little baker is so good she recently competed on a kids baking show on television. Since it is October, she decided to get a little festive with her dessert. Sofie made a candy corn cheesecake that is so delicious and easy, even Brian could help out.
