Ten miniature bakers with major talent will be put to the test to see whose skills measure up on Kids Baking Championship, premiering on Monday, January 4th at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network.
Over the course of eight episodes, Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman lead the kid contestants (ranging in age from 10 to 13) through tasty challenges designed to find the most impressive and creative young baker in the country.
Their baking skills and originality must rise to the top, as they whip up delectable desserts including perfect pies, elegant eclairs, mouthwatering macarons, creative cakes, and crispy cookies.
Only one will take the cake and the sweet grand prize of $25,000 to become the Kids Baking Champion!
“The bakers might be small, but Kids Baking Championship is bigger than ever with more episodes, tougher challenges, and a greater grand prize. Duff and Valerie add even more flavor and fun, making this competition just as delectable as the amazing treats the kid bakers create,” said Bob Tuschman, senior VP Programming, Food Network.
