The Food Network is set to represent the 216 this holiday season with a mixture of guest judges and contestants from Northeast Ohio joining in "Cake Wars: Christmas."
The confection-filled throwdown premieres Nov. 9, unveiling Akron's expert cake sculptor Stephen Baity to the nation. In each installment of the six-episode series, teams of seven will bake, carve and decorate cake masterpieces for a panel of judges. As we've come to expect, at the end of each episode, one team will be sent home, dashing their fondant-rolling dreams.
The last team standing will win $50,000 from Food Network and become the reigning "Cake Wars: Christmas" champ, whatever that means.
