Zombies, mummies and monsters galore get in on the action on the return of the spookiest baking competition on Food Network, where seven terrifyingly talented bakers compete to create the most hauntingly delicious desserts on "Halloween Baking Championship," premiering Monday, Oct. 3 (9 p.m. ET/PT). Throughout the five-week competition, comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and his sidekick, Walter, challenge the bakers' abilities to create creepy crawly confections for judges Damiano Carrara, Carla Hall and Sandra Lee. Only one baker with the most impressive treats will win the title of "Halloween Baking Champion" and take home the grand prize of $25,000.
Each week on "Halloween Baking Championship," the bakers face tough challenges from making bite-sized monster morsels, to wickedly decadent desserts stuffed with trick-or-treat candies, as well as creepy clown cake-pops and goodies of ghostly graveyards. The last three bakers who impress the judges with their spellbinding sweets will face the ultimate challenge in the grand finale - baking, designing and decorating a haunted "gingerdead" house.
Fans can go behind the scenes of this spooky competition and see the creepy creations up close at FoodNetwork.com/BakingChampionship, and they can join the confectionary conversation on Twitter using #BakingChampionship.
For even more scary sweets, on Wednesday, Oct. 5 (8 p.m. ET/PT), Duff Goldman and Alison Sweeney host the first-ever "Kids Halloween Baking Championship." On this hour-long special, four fan favorites from "Kids Baking Championship" are back to bake their way through two chilling challenges for the chance to win $10,000, and the title of "Kids Halloween Baking Champion."
