Insulin spike and caloric deficit

Hey guys, I dont really understand the concept of gaining fat during the insulin spike, Basically if during the day I eat huge amount of simple carbs, does the spike happens few hours after I ate ? What if I eat simple sugars but finish my day with caloric deficit, what happens then ?
