Culinary icon Giada De Laurentiis kicks off the new year with the competition series "Winner Cake All," premiering Monday, Jan. 7 (10 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network.
Each episode features four of the best cake-baking tandems from around the country, as Giada challenges them to create epic cakes for their clientele's unforgettable celebrations, ranging from a cake honoring a member of the armed services coming home to a cake for the ultimate family party featuring America's favorite quintuplets, the Busbys, from TLC's "OutDaughtered." Through 13 episodes, the teams are put to the test over two rounds of baking, with a rotating panel of guest judges helping the clients determine which team captures their dream look and taste to prevail with the $10,000 grand prize.
"As a culinary superstar, restaurateur and Food Network host, there isn't anything that Giada cannot do," Food Network President Courtney White said. "Whether it is making a cake for a baby shower or bringing a celebrity client's vision to life, these bakers must navigate pressure-filled challenges, while wowing Giada and the judges for the right to walk away with $10,000."
Each episode features the baking teams competing in two rounds, including a decoration challenge where each team must create a unique cake topper based on the client's theme. The panel of judges then decides which team is the first to be eliminated. In the second round, the three remaining teams take part in the cake challenge, where Giada introduces the client's request for a sculpted cake for their celebration.
Thematic episodes during the season include the creation of a game-day party cake for former NFL player Rashad Jennings, Guy Fieri tasking the bakers with making a "Guy's Grocery Games"-themed cake, and "Iron Chef" Michael Symon challenging the bakers to make a cake for the opening of his new restaurant in Las Vegas. The stakes are high, but only one team will be victorious and celebrate with $10,000.
