In her next show on the Food Network, celebrity chef and restaurateur Giada De Laurentiis will host an inspired new baking competition. Named Winner Cake All, it will bring together four expert bakers, one celebrity client and a rotating panel of judges for each show.
The 13-episode season will start airing January 7th—here’s what you need to know!
There’s a Sweet $10,000 Prize
$10,000 in cash is up for grabs. It’s the grand prize won by the baking team that outshines their competition throughout a season of pressure-filled challenges.
Each episode will begin with a thematic Decorator Challenge—also known as the show’s elimination round. This challenge will require baking teams to create a specialty cake topper inspired by the celebrity client’s chosen theme, with the lowest scoring team stepping aside for the show’s second half.
You’ll Love the Celebrity Clients
The remaining teams will then advance to the Cake Challenge, where De Laurentiis will reveal their sculpted cake assignment—straight from celebrity clients like The Busbys from TLC’s OutDaughtered, Guy Fieri, Michael Symon and former NFL football player Rashad Jennings. (And trust us, nobody knows how to eat like a pro football player.)
In true Fieri fashion, De Laurentiis’ fellow Food Network star plans to bring his own brand of brash and bold baking to his episode, asking contestants to create a Guy’s Grocery Games-style cake. Will it be as “off the hook” as these Fieri favorites?
Iron Chef Michael Symon has a special challenge up his sleeve. He wants to see if the bakers can bring to life a cake that is grand enough for display during the opening of his new restaurant in Las Vegas!
The Judges Mean Business
Judging standards will be sky high, with a slate of rotating judges assisting Giada De Laurentiis throughout the season. Selected for their exacting baking standards and exemplary skill level, Winner Cake All judges will include Dan Langan from Baked by Dan, YouTube baking star Yolanda Gampp, pastry chef Damiano Carrara and Kimberly Bailey, the owner of Santa Monica’s Butter End Cakery.
What bakers will walk away with the $10,000? We’ll be watching to find out!
