He didn’t reveal how much he would charge for the Keurig pie, but admitted he would charge top prices to food lovers.

Manganello’s least expensive pie on the list is the pumpkin bucket, which he said he would offer for free.

He increased the price of the cake to $4 for a hair dryer and $650 for a pot of orange.

The baker went even higher for the iPhone, cereal bowl, and water bottle, jokingly charging between $999 and $1 million for all three.

The great news for cake lovers is that if you’re looking for a ‘lovers’ special’ or ‘floor cake discount’, you can always try their Croc cakes and sleep mask.

Anyone hoping to get their hands on a priceless cake from Manganello will have to order his girl cake, which he cut in half without hesitation.

Manganello proved to be a controversial competitor due to his deep red gelatin squares.

The social media star created squares of red gelatin to imitate tomatoes in a real taco to trick the judges into believing the Mexican food was actually a pie.

He told Tudum that his sneaky move did not violate any rules and that the program took its regulations very seriously.

“Since this episode was a fast food challenge, I checked the cooking rules and asked if it was okay to alter my lure with food, and they said, ‘Of course,'” he said.

Despite the loss and accusations of cheating made by some viewers, Manganello has continued to fool viewers with her cakes and has begun showing fans the secrets to her baking success.

The baker went even higher for the iPhone, cereal bowl and water bottle by charging between $999 and $1 million.

She is currently selling the cereal bowl and cartoon cake kit and tutorial for $65 each.

They come with “almost everything” someone will need to create the cakes and a private link that features Mangenello in a video tutorial.

It’s unclear how many cake kits the baker has sold so far.

TikTok users have left several praises for Mangenello in his January 7 video and even thought he deserved ‘a second chance’ in Is It Cake?

Manganello responded to some comments on the TikTok video and even admitted it was ‘bad’ when Is It Cake? Recorded.

While many users applauded its joke pricing, some commenters believed the pot would actually be worth $650, but one user wasn’t happy with the iPhone’s $999 pie price.

“I thought 650 was reasonable, but the iPhone being more expensive didn’t make sense to me,” one TikToker wrote.
