Press Release

Food Network’s seasonal baking competition, “Spring Baking Championship,” returns with a supersized new season full of celebrations. Beginning Monday, March 4 (8 p.m. ET/PT), host Jesse Palmer puts a dozen talented bakers to the test to transform springtime soirees into spectacular desserts. From Earth Day to Jazz Fest, to Derby Day and more, the bakers must showcase their baking abilities and craftsmanship as they whip up the most delectable, edible creations to win over judges Kardea Brown, Nancy Fuller and Duff Goldman. Only one baker will rise to the top and earn $25,000 and the title of “Spring Baking” champion.

" ‘Spring Baking Championship’ is the ultimate celebration of delectable desserts," said Betsy Ayala, head of content, food, Warner Bros. Discovery. “Viewers will be captivated by the creativity of the talented bakers as they make the most eye-popping creations.”

“Spring Baking Championship” kicks off with a two-hour episode on Monday, March 4 (8 p.m.). In the premiere, 12 bakers enter the “Spring Baking” kitchen to get the celebration started with some fun in the sun as they are tasked with creating sweet treats inspired by a tropical spring break. With two hours on the clock, the bakers must create a dessert that takes the judges on a spring break adventure using ingredients and flowers found on a tropical trip. Over the course of the competition the bakers face themed challenges including floral dome cakes for the spring equinox, ice cream filled baked Alaska desserts decorated to resemble different geographical locations, and cocktail flavored eclairs inspired by the Kentucky Derby.

In the two-part finale, it’s the biggest celebration of all – weddings! Two of the bottom bakers face off on Monday, April 29, in a challenge where they honor the wedding tradition of “something borrowed” by borrowing recipes from the other bakers. Then on Monday, May 6, the three remaining bakers must design and create a dream wedding cake inspired by stain glass. Only one baker is crowned the new “Spring Baking Champion” and takes home the cash prize.

Fans can meet the newest batch of bakers and see the best creations from past seasons of “Spring Baking Championship” at FoodNetwork.com/SpringBakingChampionship. Get an exclusive look behind the scenes with Jesse, Kardea, Duff and Nancy, as they take on their own challenges on social media using #SpringBakingChampionship.
