When Zombozo hypnotizes Grandpa Max's entire baking class it is up to Ben and Gwen to clean up the mess, but it gets even messier when Zombozo unveils his new bodyguard: Kevin 11!
The episode starts off with the Tennysons arriving at a baking class. Ben gasps at the sight of so many old people around. Max agrees, thinking that the class would've been younger. Much to Max's confusion, Ben wasn't gasping about the old people, rather that the class is taught by Chef Zomboni. Ben points out that it's Zombozo. Max and Gwen both agree. Zombozo walks in and reveals that Zomboni is his legal name. And the class is legit. He admits he doesn't do the "scary clown thing" all of the time. He starts the class off by telling them to take their seats. Ben states that he should take him to jail. Gwen states that he hasn't lied yet, and Max motions to leave him be. Gwen also agrees that Zombozo is up to something, but suggest they wait for him to strike, since they know better. As Zombozo teaches the class, Ben gets more suspicious each time he lists an ingredient. Soon, Ben transforms into XLR8, and confronts Zombozo. XLR8 looks over to Gwen, who is following along with the class. He asks her what happened to "constant vigilance", and Gwen admits that she got bored since Zombozo wasn't doing anything. Zombozo states that they can't proceed until all of the students were ready. XLR8 runs around and makes the batter of his cake. Gwen asks why he made the bowl so large. Zombozo tells Ben that he'll need to use the oven down the hall. Gwen brings XLR8 under the table. She tells him that this is his chance to look around, and find out what Zombozo is up to.
XLR8 runs off into the hallway and runs to an office. He finds a file cabinet, and looks for a file on Zombozo. XLR8 finally finds Zombozo's application. He turns on the computer, and looks at the application. He finds out that Zomboni is actually his real name. Back in the classroom, Zombozo uses a cake mixer to hypnotize the class. Gwen gets the idea to pretend to be hypnotized, although Max was already hypnotized. He demands everyone to throw their wallets at him. He then demands Gwen to gather all of the wallets and bring them to him. Zombozo is disappointed by the wallets. So he tells the class to start baking. He plans to make a lot of money off selling cakes. Zombozo promotes Max to security, and tells him to attack Ben if he comes back, and tells Gwen to make sure they keep baking.
XLR8 finishes his cake, and walks back to the classroom. On his way, he figures he was too harsh on Zombozo, and baking really is fun. He walks into the classroom and sees the entire class working for Zombozo. He times out, and asks Gwen what's going on. Gwen states that as soon as Ben left, Zombozo hypnotized everyone except her. Then he told her that he was going to bring Ben a "big surprise." Ben asks about grandpa Max. Max then charges at the two. Ben throws cake in Max's face, which breaks him out of his hypnotism. Max is impressed by the cake. Gwen states that Ben's cake can break people out of the hypnotism. Ben states that that's "boring", and he's a hero, not a baker. Zombozo comes back, and states that he loves to cook, but he has to stick to his life of crime. He pulls out Kevin. Ben and Gwen are shocked at the sight of Kevin. Zombozo explains that he caught him trying to steal ingredients out of his car, so he hypnotized him. Ben is excited that he now has someone to fight. Ben transforms into Humungousaur, and goes to fight Kevin. Kevin transforms into Bashmouth, much to Ben's disappointment. While Humungousaur and Bashmouth fights, Gwen and Max uses the cake to free people of Zombozo's hypnotism. Max gets all of the old people out of the room. Ben times out, and Bashmouth approaches him. Gwen runs to Ben, and together, they both throw the cake into Bashmouth's mouth. Bashmouth asks why they are smearing cake into his face. Gwen explains that Zombozo hypnotized him. Kevin questions where he is, and Ben points out that he is sneaking out the window. Ben insist that he should go after Zombozo since he's the heroic one. Kevin asks about his revenge. Gwen then suggest that they do both. Ben transforms into Shock Rock, and they execute a team-up move, defeating Zombozo.
Shock Rock walks up to Bashmouth, awaiting a fist bump. Kevin figures he won't leave until he does it, so he gives a fist bump. The two times out, and Gwen walks up stating that it's good to see the two get along. Kevin denies that that's what's happening. Gwen hands Kevin a cake to take, because they're all friends. Kevin sates that learning and sharing is lame, but comes back to take the cake. Max congratulates them on saving the day with cake. Ben states that's not how he's supposed to save the day. Then, Max explains that a good hero needs to be open to all sorts of opportunities to save the day, and he thinks today Ben will learn learn that being good at more than just one thing, pays off. Gwen joins in stating that Ben's aliens are amazing, but he has other skills that are great too. She also states that his cake even made Kevin a friend, although Kevin, from a far distance, denies that. Ben agrees with them, thinking that he could make a difference in other ways. An old man from the class asks Ben to teach the class. Ben, cockily, agrees. Gwen then instantly regrets this.
Zombozo: Welcome students! Ben: I knew it! Zombozo: Yeah, so? Zomboni's my legal name. And this class is completely legit. I don't do the scary clown thing all the time you know. I've got other stuff going on.
Zombozo: The first thing we'll need is a truly fascinating device, some might even call it mesmerizing. Ben: Here comes the hypnotism. Zombozo: Um, so it's an egg timer. You can use this to track your baking time. Now this next ingredient is really gonna make your head spin. Ben: Make your head spin? Obvious hypnotism pun! Zombozo: Some nice baking soda. It makes your cake fluffy.
'Ben: (Relaxes). Zombozo: Now, this part will leave you speechless! Ben: (Prepares to hit watch). Zombozo: It's flower. Ben: (Relaxes). Zombozo: Now, I'll throw you for a loop - with sugar. The next ingredient, you might even say it will hypnotize you into submission. Ben: Here it comes! (Hit's the Omnitrix). XLR8: Not so fast, Zombozo! Zombozo: You have a problem with milk? XLR8: You said you were going to hypnotize us into submission! Zombozo: It's a common phrase. XLR8: It so isn't! Old Lady: I heard it. Zombozo: She's heard it. XLR8: When! Old Lady: Well, that man said it just now.
Gwen: Ben, would you care to join me under the table. XLR8: Gwen, he's trying to get rid of me. Gwen: This is your chance to snoop! Find the hole in the "chef story". Grandpa and I can handle Zombozo. XLR8: Zombozo is really bad at planning. Gwen: (Laughs). I know right. Even a couple of kids can outsmart that clown. He won't know what hit him. (Both laughs)
XLR8: Okay, a different color or something? That means it's done, right? Yeah, it's totally done. Maybe I was too harsh on Zombozo. I can see why he would be in to baking, it's actually pretty fun.
Ben: I'm a hero, not a baker. Gwen: You're allowed to be more than one thing! Zombozo: Yes, one of those things being a thorn in my side! I love to cook, but I need to follow my true passion, which is crime. To combat your bit of bravado, I brought a salty show off! Gwen and Ben: Kevin?! Ben: What is he doing here?! Zombozo: Can you believe this kid was trying to steal ingredients from my car. So, I decided to take this poor misguided boy under my wing! So I did what any evil clown would do - I hypnotized him!
Zombozo: Let's finish this up, me and my guard dog here got more evil plans to pull. I known, just thinking of the cash flow it makes my head spin too. Though I will enjoy having you out of the way once and for all, I simply can't bare to watch a child get hurt... without my spectacles!
Bashmouth: You want to see a real rip-of? WAIT TIL' I GET A HOLD OF YOUR FACE!
Shock Rock: Kevin? Bashmouth: Ugh, you're not going to leave until I do it are you? Shock Rock: You know, K-dog! Bashmouth: Fine. (Gives a fist bump). Gwen: It's nice to see you two finally getting along. Kevin: Nope, that's not what's happening. (Pushes Ben). Gwen: Since you like the cake so much, I'm sure Ben wouldn't mind letting you take some home for helping out. Kevin: Thanks, I guess. Gwen: Because helping is what friends do. Kevin: WE"RE NOT FRIENDS! Learning and sharing is lame, I'm out of here. I still want the cake though! Gwen: Yeah, you do.
Max: (Chuckles). Great job, Tennyson's. You're cake saved the day. Ben: Yeah, but that's not how I'm supposed to hero. Max: A great hero has to be open to all sorts of opportunities, and I think today you'll learn that being good at more than just one thing, pays off. Gwen: Your aliens are amazing, but you have other talents that are amazing too. Your cake was so good, it even made, Kevin, a friend. Kevin: (From far away). NO I'm NOT! Ben: You're right, I guess I could make a difference in other ways. Old Man; Excuse me, Young man. You think you can teach our class? Your cake was delicious. Ben: Well of course, humble student. It's one of my many talents. Gwen: I instantly regret this.
