Allen, a 20-year-old social work major at Mississippi Valley State University, began baking in high school and has since launched a thriving cake business.

“I was on Google searching for an opportunity to test my skills. I felt I was getting better, and I wanted to find a competition that would challenge me. I found a company called Super Delicious and reached out to them. They emailed me that I could apply for Halloween Wars. So I signed up, did an interview and a call sometime later that I made it, and they flew me out,” said Allen.

Allen’s team will include Holly Webster from Las Vegas, Nevada and Amy Strickland from Orlando, Florida.

“There is something calming about baking and designing cakes,” he said. “I love the designs and coming up with different levels of creativity. One day I want to own a cake studio.”
