Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman are back with a brand-new season of Kids Baking Championship, putting 12 young bakers through 10 weeks of delectably difficult dessert challenges. Starting Monday, Jan. 2 at 8|7c, the kid bakers, ages 9 to 12, will show off their baking prowess in a series of culinary competitions; they’ll be challenged to make impostor desserts, volcano Bundt cakes, breakfast desserts and more. Each week one young baker will be sent home, and the winner will win the grand prize of $25,000 and the title of Kids Baking Champion.

In the season premiere, the carnival comes to Kids Baking Championship, and Valerie and Duff task the bakers with making carnival-themed cupcakes, but they have to incorporate classic carnival treats like kettle corn, frozen bananas and cotton candy.

Fans can join the baking banter using #KidsBakingChampionship, and relive the most-adorable moments with video and photo highlights, including baking tips and interviews with Duff and Valerie, at FoodNetwork.com/KidsBakingChampionship.
