It's an all-star cupcake showdown as celebrity contestants battle to prove their baking skills on special new episodes of "Cupcake Wars," beginning on Monday, July 11 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network.

In each of the six episodes, hosted by Jonathan Bennett, four famous faces will compete in three rounds of elimination challenges to impress judges Elizabeth Chambers, Florian Bellanger and a special guest judge, for the chance to debut their creations at a major event and to win a donation to charity.

The celebrity contestants competing for cupcake glory in the upcoming episodes include Adrienne Bailon, Drake Bell, Julissa Bermudez, Yvette Nicole Brown, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Charlie and Max Carver, Coolio, Ron Funches, Lori Greiner, Bob Harper, Hannah Hart, Perez Hilton, Grace Helbig, Shawn Johnson, Carson Kressley, NeNe Leakes, Vanessa Marano, Katherine McNamara, Heather Morris, Lamorne Morris, Audrina Patridge, Antonio Sabato Jr., Molly Sims, Lea Thompson, Emeraude Toubia, Nick Young and Johnny Weir.

Each will be challenged to design cupcakes that match a unique theme, including everything from cheerleaders to the iconic Hello Kitty and "Josie and the Pussycats," from Medieval Times to the classic game "Twister," and to the popular children's character Matilda.
