New season premieres Monday, June 3
“Wedding Cake Championship,” the top-tier cake competition hosted by Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, returns Monday, June 3 (10 p.m. ET/PT), with new engaged couples looking for their dream wedding cake – and a new batch of elite bakers who hope their talents will deliver.
The baking duos will be challenged as they whisk through difficult cake challenges and face extreme requests from real-life couples who test the limits of their skill and creativity. Judging the action week-to-week are baking extraordinaire Kimberly Bailey, “Chopped's” Maneet Chauhan, and “Say Yes to the Dress” host Randy Fenoli. The team to rise above will earn a $25,000 grand prize and the title of “Wedding Cake” Champion.
"Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir are the ultimate hosting couple for this celebratory competition with their easy rapport and play-by-play commentary on all the baking action," said Courtney White, president, Food Network. "These two cake enthusiasts are pulling out all the stops this season as the bakers craft incredible custom wedding cakes in this edge-of-your-seat wedding cake extravaganza."
In each of the four hour-long episodes, the teams will face two rounds of challenges. First, they must tackle wedding cake toppers, where one team will earn a special advantage in the next round when the bakers must design a personalized wedding cake for a real-life couple's big day.
The pressure is on for the three remaining teams in the grand finale on Monday, June 24, when they are challenged to create the most over-the-top, impressive cake for “Bachelor in Paradise's” Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon. Only one team will cream the competition to take home the grand $25,000 prize and the title.
