Food Network’s seasonal competitions return, making the spring season sweeter than ever. Love is in the air on the new season of “Spring Baking Championship,” premiering Monday, March 6 (8 p.m. ET/PT), as host Jesse Palmer puts a dozen talented bakers to the test in 10 episodes featuring unique challenges that showcase all the things people love about springtime – flowers, garden parties, weddings and more.
The bakers must illustrate their skill, passion and, most of all, love for baking while ensuring their flavors and decorations embody the season to win over judges Kardea Brown, Nancy Fuller and Duff Goldman.
Then, at 10 p.m. ET/PT Sunny Anderson returns to bring viewers into a fantastical Easter wonderland in the six-episode baking competition, “Spring Baking Championship: Easter.” Eight impressive bakers must create delicious, over-the-top holiday masterpieces inspired by colorful candy and whimsical Easter themes. Judges Stephanie Boswell and Zac Young help determine which baker has the skills to take the cake and win the coveted Golden Easter Egg.
The new episodes of “Spring Baking Championship” and “Spring Baking Championship: Easter” are also available to stream weekly beginning on March 6th on discovery+.
“Food Network’s annual baking series celebrate the season with visually stunning, edible creations and spirited competition between the incredible bakers,” said Betsy Ayala, head of content, food, Warner Bros. Discovery. “Monday nights have become appointment viewing for fans for this reason, and they are in for a treat with a double-stacked night of spring baking skill and craftsmanship.”

“Spring Baking Championship” kicks off with a special two-hour, super-sized episode on Monday, March 6. In the premiere, 12 bakers enter the “Spring Baking” kitchen and are tasked by host Jesse Palmer to give a fresh spring makeover to the desserts that made them fall in love with baking. Judges Kardea Brown, Nancy Fuller and Duff Goldman determine which baker’s skills have blossomed to move on in the competition.
One of the biggest culminations of love is a wedding – and in the finale, the three remaining bakers must design and create a dream wedding cake for a real couple. In the end, one baker is crowned the new “Spring Baking Champion” and takes home the cash prize and a spot in Food Network Magazine.
