Duff Goldman is back with a brand-new cake competition show, premiering on Thursday, Jan. 29 at 10:30|9:30c, and this one is anything but sweet. Duff Till Dawn mirrors Duff's out-of-the-box baking style and his flair for dessert dramatics, which means fans are in for pure cake chaos of the contest sort.

Each episode will be a midnight battle between two professional bakers and their trusty assistants, and the competition goes beyond the physical. Because this underground competition is based on pride, it isn't going to be friendly. Saddle up for smack talk and tension, as bakers are about to vie for Duff's sought-after approval and attention.

While legendary in his crazy culinary skills, Duff isn't the sole decision-maker. Contestants will be assessed by three judges including Duff, plus a celebrity and a baking professional. The three will determine which baker ultimately deserves the trophy and pretty major bragging rights.

Tune in for a sneak peek on  Sunday, Jan. 25 at 11|10c before the series premiere on  Thursday, Jan. 29 at 10:30|9:30c.
