Each week, Buddy pushes the contestants' baking and decorating skills to the limit through a series of increasingly difficult challenges that test their business sense and cake artistry. Someone will be sent packing each week until the NEXT GREAT BAKER is the last one standing.

"My family and I put the contests through the challenges we face every day and think the viewers will learn even more what it takes to be the best in the business."
