‘Kids Baking Championship’ is a competitive reality baking show that airs on the Food Network. It first premiered on February 2, 2015. The show is produced by Levity Entertainment Group.

Schools are closed, and children are on their summer break! In this show, nine young bakers enter into baking competition where they have to showcase their talent and skills. The age of the kids range from 10 to 13. They are put through various dessert tests to see who will make it up to the final level of the competition. Participants are many, but the winner is only one. The winner takes home the cake as well as the grand prize of $25,000. The winner also gets a chance to get featured in Food Network Magazine and is rewarded with title of ‘Kids Banking Champion’. Over the seasons, the show has garnered a solid audience base.

Kids Baking Championship Cast: Who is in it?

The cast of ‘Kids Baking Championship’ varies from season to season, since each season sees a different batch of contestants. However, what does remain the same are the judges. Up until this point, baker Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes fame and actress Valerie Bertinelli have served as the judges of the show.

In the upcoming season, it is likely that the judges will return, and we hope to see a host of new faces, as the contestants ensure that things get heated up among themselves when they set out to win the championship.

Kids Baking Championship Plot: What is it about?

‘Kids Baking Championship’ hinges on the display of talent on part of the kids across various stages of the competition. From making startling ice cream sandwiches to building gravity-defying cakes, the kids have to bake sweet treats to win the competition. The fans can also learn many baking tips from this show.

In their first challenge, contestants have to bake cakes which are kept for sale. If the cake gets sold within two hours, then the participant goes to the other round. There are other challenges thrown in subsequent episodes which include creative cakes, eclectic desserts, and appetizing snacks.

Some of the confectionary challenges in the previous seasons have included the Rainbow Cake Challenge where the kids have to bake a rainbow cake, inside and out. Each episode is presented in a creative way. Thunder crashes on the set and lightning strikes. When the clouds get cleared, the kids are greeted by a beautiful rainbow. The kid who makes the best rainbow cake has the best chance to win $25,000.

What stands out about the show is the smart combination of two well-liked elements – kids and baking. Who does not find kids adorable, and baking fun to watch? Moreover, unlike most reality shows, where participants are jaded, and there is a lot of badmouthing and unnecessary hostility brewing, the atmosphere in this series is fun. The kids are really nice to each other and even go to the extent of sharing ingredients while competing against one another. The judges too are very benevolent and though their banter comes across a little forced at times, they go out of their way to help the kids. Instead of chastising them, they provide constructive criticism, but this does not mean that the judges hesitate in calling out anything that is not up to the standard.

Considering that baking is a very precise endeavor, it is indeed impressive to see these kids carry out their tasks so effortlessly and immaculately, and all from memory. Some of them are rather mature about their approach to baking and if you are interested, you can pick up some tips from these children, like how vanilla can help bring out the aroma of the frosting. We should not harp only on the pros, and it would be remiss of us not to point out the fact that sometimes the enthusiasm on part of the kids looks a bit scripted, and the show becomes a little melodramatic at times.

However, in the overall scope of things, it still remains a thoroughly entertaining watch, more so, because it does away with notions like everybody is a winner. It treats the contestants like mature individuals, instead of handling them with kid gloves. Thus the show does have an elimination policy and the emotions spill over when the kids are eliminated. However, such is the nature of reality television, and it does make ‘Kids Baking Championship’ a thoroughly exciting watch.

Kids Baking Championship Season 7 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Kids Baking Championship’ Season 6 premiered on January 7, 2019. As we pointed out, people adore kids, and they love cooking shows. Combined with the fact that this series has always had a homely atmosphere, it has a wide appeal among audiences. That’s why the show was renewed for a seventh season. Kids Biking Championship Season 7 is all set to release on August 12, 2019. Don’t forget to mark your calendars.
