|“||Now let's go win this cooking show by roller skating through an obstacle course.||”|
Amanda is excited when she and Milo get to participate in her favorite TV show, Cake 'Splosion. However, since she has to work together with Milo, it also makes Amanda nervous about the potential calamity Murphy's Law brings.
During an assembly, it is announced that Basil Bravo is looking for contestants for his extreme baking show, Cake 'Splosion. After getting tangled in a ceiling fan, Milo is chosen for the show, and Amanda is also chosen per suggestion of Milo, as she is a huge fan of the show. Amanda is elated until she realizes she and Milo are on the same team; despite Milo's assurance that he will do his best to pack his backpack to ensure there are no problems, Amanda remains worried. On the day of the show, everyone comes to watch them, except Martin who stays home to increase Milo and Amanda’s chances of winning. Amanda initially asks Milo to be her "prep chef," having him stand aside and gather the ingredients while she does all the baking, which he agrees to. However, despite Murphy's Law and the cheating of one of the teams, Milo & Amanda do quite well, advancing to the final round.
At the Murphy house, Martin goes to watch the show. He’s entranced by Doof’s soap opera. When he remembers the show, the Recurring Raccoon steals the remote and dunks it in the bird bath. Doof gets annoyed and finds his Transport-inator, but shoots Martin instead. He teleports to the show where his wife and daughter tell him Milo and Amanda are still in it.
Milo & Amanda prepare for the last round, and Milo offers to leave, to prevent Murphy's Law from acting up during the obstacle course. But Amanda insists he stay, adding that "things are just better when you're around." As they race to the finish line holding the cake and dodging obstacles, the remaining team trips and is attacked by goats. They almost make it but trip, due to Diogee, and their cake lands on Bravo. Milo apologizes but Amanda tells him she had fun. However Bravo liked the cake and declared them the winners. Amanda hugs Milo and he blushes, as the episode irises out with a heart shape.

- While Brigette is cheering on Amanda and Milo from the bleachers, an especially baffled woman and man are sitting to her right. Judging by the woman's coloring and design, it is likely that they are Amanda's parents. This is further evidenced when Milo and Amanda win the competition at the end of the episode, as the couple shares a hug when Brigette, Sara and Martin do so as well.
- This episode reveals that Middletown, home of the Tigers and Middletown Middlemen, and Badgertown, a town that appears in the Phineas and Ferb episode "Der Kinderlumper", are both within the Tri-State Area, same as Danville.
- Apparently, Doofenshmirtz has encountered Recurring Raccoon before.
