(Miami, FL) - Buddy Valastro is back, and he's bringing his family along for a brand-new competition series featuring America's best baking families in Discovery Family's BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY, premiering Saturday, September 8 at 9/8c with two back-to-back episodes. New half-hour episodes of the series will stream live on Discovery Family GO and will also be available on demand the following day.
Each week on BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY, two extremely talented, passionate and creative baking family duos face-off against each other in a fun head-to-head bake off at Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey. The contestants, spanning from professionals to emerging chefs to passionate weekend bakers, will have every fiber of their baking abilities tested as Buddy sets a unique challenge in each episode. With help from his own family and Carlo's Bakery staff, Buddy and two members of his team mentor and judge the visiting family's delicious creations on design, flavor, technique, finish and how well the contestants followed a central theme -- ranging from unicorns, sci-fi, 3D, Halloween and much more! The two teams have only four hours to design, bake, and decorate a cake for the chance to win a $1,000 cash prize, professional baking supplies and most importantly, bragging rights!
Throughout the competition, Buddy and his family members inspire and help the bakers take their skills to the next level with tips, real-time feedback and design assistance. This season, teams from across the country including mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, cousins, sisters, twins, best friends and more will compete to have their cake and eat it too in an emotionally charged, all you can eat cake battle where family is just as important as the ingredients.
