Plot Synopsis

Hosts and judges Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli mentor a group of kid contestants (ranging in age from 10 to 13), who are tested on their baking skills and originality as they survive elimination while vying for the grand prize: $25,000 in Seasons 2 & 3 and a Season 1 prize package that includes a complete set of Food Network bakeware products, a profile in "Food Network" magazine, an original cake featured at Charm City Cakes and $10,000 cash. Throughout the competition, these talented kid bakers whip up delectable desserts, including creative cakes, mouthwatering cookies and pastries -- making it seem as easy as pie. Each one-hour episode of KIDS BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP features a single challenge, ending with one or two contestants being sent home. In Season 1 the four remaining bakers compete in the finals, where the kids are tasked with a massive challenge: create a celebration cake for the moment they win, along with baked party gifts that complement their cake in flavor and design. The eight Season 1 contestants include: Caroline Binkley (Delaware, OH; age 13), Annika Coffman (Boise, ID; age 12), Jackson Fujimori (Torrance, CA; age 11), Hollis Jackson (Jacksonville, FL; age 13), Payton Pelaez (San Francisco, CA; age 10), Anthony Smith (Rochester, NY; age 11), Cody Vasquez (Gilbert, AZ; age 12), and Natalie Venable (Thousand Oaks, CA; age 11). Season 2 of KIDS BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP premiered on Monday, January 4, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network. The second season opens with ten kid bakers creating the perfect pie with just the right balance of crust and filling, but Valerie and Duff reveal midway through the challenge that the kids must also make a flavored ice cream from scratch. In subsequent episodes, the kids try to avoid elimination while creating a dozen tasty and artfully decorated eclairs, decadent, delicious, chocolate desserts from scratch, three-dozen macarons in at least two different colors for a beautiful macaron display, a dessert that utilizes three randomly assigned popular lunchbox items, a dessert using at least three different kinds of candy from a huge candy display, a dessert item masquerading as a savory dish, and a spring break-themed cake challenge. In the finale, the three remaining bakers battle it out for the title of Kids Baking Champion. The ten Season 2 contestants include: Alex Alcorta (Austin, TX: age 10), Rebecca Beale (Graham, TX: age 13), Peggy Fischer (St. Johnsbury, VT; age 10), Jane Haviland (Ann Arbor, MI; age 11), Colby Lacasse (Blue Hill, ME; age 11), Matthew Merril (Great Falls, VA; age 11), Alex Portis (Monroeville, PA; age 12), Yahshimabet Sellassie-Hall (Oakland, CA; age 12), Emma Wensing (Austin, TX; age 11), Ryan Wilson (Danville, CA; age 11). Food Network premiered the the third season of KIDS BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, immediately following a four-hour marathon (4-8pm) of encore episodes. During the ten-week competition, the kid contestants (ranging in age from 9 to 12) must show off their baking skills and creativity as they whip up delectable desserts despite difficult, themed challenges such as carnival cupcakes, erupting volcano cakes, throwback treats, and the always popular challenge, dessert imposters. Only one will rise to the top to win the sweet grand prize of $25,000 to become the champion. In the season opener, "Life Is a Carnival," the carnival is in town for the Kids Baking Championship kick off! It's a thrill ride when Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman ask the 12 best kid bakers in the country to create carnival-themed cupcakes and incorporate carnival treats like kettle corn, frozen bananas and cotton candy. The 12 Season 3 contestants include: Aidan Berry (Shalimar, FL: age 12), Kaniyah Cary (Portsmouth, VA: age 10), Brooke Cumberland (Greenwich, CT: age 9), Charlotte d'Arabian (Coronado, CA: Age 10), Justice Faustina (Napa, CA: age 12), Cole Frederickson (Thousand Oaks, CA: age 12), Keili Gorczyca (San Francisco, CA: age 10), Jason Intravartolo (Seattle, WA: age 11), Maya Jindal (Great Falls, VA: age 9), Dylin Musgrove (Grovetown, GA: age 12), Reese Smith (Bloomfield Hills, MI: age 10), and Audra Tow (Aurora, CO: age 10).
