Though you may be in fall mode these days, it's not too early to start decking the halls. Right on the heels of a successful premiere season of Cake Wars, host Jonathan Bennett is back to lead another sweet competition. This time all about seasonal treats on Cake Wars: Christmas.

Premiering Monday, Nov. 9 at 9|8c, this six-week battle for holiday glory will bring together seven teams of the best-ever food artists, each set to face off for the $50,000 prize. Along with a rotating roster of special guests, Master Baker Sherry Yard and design expert Charles Phoenix will be on hand to judge the competitors in a series of themed challenges. From hilariously festive ugly Christmas sweaters to over-the-top gingerbread houses, there will be no shortage of seasonal celebrations — and, of course, fierce culinary chops — on display.

Mark your calendar for the premiere of Cake Wars: Christmas on Monday, Nov. 9 at 9|8c. For a look back at the best moments of Cake Wars, check out these insider photos.
