THE MAIN ATTRACTION. Mauro: A GIANT ALLIGATOR? Danny: HOLY CANNOLI!
WHAT’S HIS NAME? Marc: MIGHTY MIKE. MIGHTY MIKE. HOW BIG IS HE? HE’S 14 FEET LONG
AND OVER 800 POUNDS. HEY, LOOK.
HOLY… MAN! HE’S ABOUT AS BIG AS
AN AVERAGE-SIZE AUTOMOBILE. Anne Marie: HE’S GONNA GO
TO NEWPORT, KENTUCKY, TO OUR SISTER AQUARIUM, SO WE KIND OF WANT TO
GIVE HIM A BIG SENDOFF. Marc: ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE TALK A LOT ABOUT
WITH OUR GUESTS IS JUST HIS SHEER SIZE, SO IF YOU COULD
MAKE SOMETHING MAYBE
CLOSE TO 14 FEET LONG. YOU WANT AN ACTUAL
REPLICA OF, LIKE, THE ACTUAL SIZE OF THE — Buddy: I THINK

TO MAKE AN 800-POUND ALLIGATOR, YOU NEED
ABOUT 800 POUNDS OF CAKE. Mauro: THERE’S
A LOT OF CAKE ON HERE. Ralph: HOW CLOSE DO YOU
THINK IT’S GONNA GET TO THE WEIGHT
OF THE REAL ALLIGATOR? I WOULDN’T BE SHOCKED IF THIS IS HEAVIER
THAN A REGULAR ALLIGATOR. THE THING ABOUT

IMPRESSIVE THAN THIS. I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS. Mauro: THIS IS 16 FOOT TALL.
THIS IS TWO SHEETS OF PLYWOOD. ♪♪ SO, TO GET THE ALLIGATOR SKIN

THE MODELING CHOCOLATE IN IT, AND I GOT TO SAY,
IT LOOKS REALISTIC. Buddy:

LIKE THIS. YOU’RE GOOD. THE OTHER SIDE. THIS IS A BIG CAKE. RIGHT? ♪♪ Mauro: WHEN THAT THING
GETS AIRBRUSHED, IT’S GONNA LOOK
SO MUCH LIKE THE ALLIGATOR. ALREADY, JUST LOOKING AT IT WITH JUST THE SCUTES ON
THE BACK, IT LOOKS FANTASTIC. YOU KNOW, THE CHALLENGING
PART OF THIS ALLIGATOR CAKE IS TO REALLY
MAKE IT LOOK AUTHENTIC. AND THE ONLY WAY
TO REALLY MAKE IT LOOK AUTHENTIC IS TO GET THE TEXTURES RIGHT. THAT’S BLACK. YEAH,
IT’S CHARCOAL BLACK. ALLIGATOR SKIN HAS GOT A LOT OF DIFFERENT
COLOR VARIATIONS IN IT, SO FIRST THING WE’RE GONNA DO
IS HIT IT WITH SOME DRY BLACK
AND CHARTREUSE. ♪♪ I WANT TO GET THE ALLIGATOR
TO LOOK LIKE HE JUMPED
RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER, SO I’M AIRBRUSHING SOME
IRIDESCENT PEARL ON THERE TO GIVE IT A SHINY GLOSS. ♪♪ AND THE MORE WE LAYERED IT, THE MORE SHE LOOKED LIKE
COMING TO LIFE. Buddy: THIS IS A CAKE! RAAR! WHEN I STEP BACK
