"Spring Baking Championship" is a reality competition series on the Food Network that is part of a franchise that also includes "Holiday Baking Championship" and "Kids Baking Championship."

As temperatures warm up outside, the competition heats up in the kitchen as eight of the country's best bakers compete. Bobby Deen hosts this sweet competition, as the contestants attempt to rise to the occasion with their springtime treats and win a sweet spot in the hearts of judges Duff Goldman ("Duff Till Dawn," "Kids Baking Championship"), Nancy Fuller ("Farmhouse Rules"), and Lorraine Pascale ("Lorraine's Fast," "Fresh and Easy Food"). Only one winner will take home the grand prize of $50,000 and the title of Spring Baking Champion.

From Mother's Day brunches, to Memorial Day family picnics, to birthday parties, and weddings, the competitors must prove their spring baking abilities each step of the way. In each of the six hour-long episodes, the bakers are tested in a pre-heat round, where one baker will be granted a special advantage in the main-heat. Along the way they must endure surprising twists in order to succeed.

On the first episode, the bakers must create the best flower-inspired cupcake. Then, in the main-heat they must take on the upside down cake using fresh fruit, leaving one baker turned upside down in this difficult challenge. Throughout the season, the bakers will be challenged to buzz around the kitchen creating sweets featuring honey as the main ingredient. Then, they must make tart treats using lemons and limes. Which dessert will turn the judges sour and make them pucker? In another challenge, the bakers must create a dozen dessert pops to stay in the competition. Which baker's dreams will pop when their treat does not make the cut? Contestants will also be challenged to create a layered springtime trifle, and then they will have the freedom to create any dessert as long as it is red, white and blue. In the grand finale, the three remaining bakers must create an impressive wedding dessert bar, before tackling the main centerpiece of the big day — the wedding cake. Who will shine, and who will melt in the competition?

The contestants include Damiano Carrara (Moorpark, Calif.), Andy Chlebana (Plainfield, Ill.), Kristine De La Cruz (Sherman Oaks, Calif.) , Juliana Evans (Orlando, Fla.), Simone Faure (St. Louis, Mo.) , Sandy Hunter (Chicago, Ill.) , Dwayne Ingraham (Water Valley, MS), and Christopher Taylor (Atlanta, Ga.).

Season 2

Bobby Deen is back to host the action as eight of the country's best bakers compete to create the most impressive and delicious springtime treats, and vie for approval from tough love judges Nancy Fuller, Duff Goldman and Lorraine Pascale. Only one baker will rise to the top and win the grand prize of $50,000 and the title of Spring Baking Champion.

Throughout the season, the competitors must tackle new challenges featuring classic spring themes and ingredients, while enduring surprising twists along the way. From cookies to brownies, and cakes to pies, the bakers' creativity and abilities will be sifted and measured in each of the six episodes. After the first round one baker will be granted a special advantage, but will it be the boost needed to succeed, or will it help them reach baking bliss?

"Spring Baking Championship" is produced by Triage Entertainment, an LEG company.
