Wedding season is upon us and we’re celebrating with a night full of top-tier cakes on Monday, June 25.

The cake-themed primetime lineup will be anchored by the all-new competition series Wedding Cake Championship, premiering at 9|8c and hosted by Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir. The show will feature six teams of elite wedding cake makers vying for the $25,000 grand prize and Wedding Cake Champion title.

Each week, the baking duos will show off their skills by completing two rounds of challenges that include creating cake toppers and a personalized wedding cake for a real-life couple. All the action will lead up to a final challenge for three remaining teams to create the most over-the-top, impressive cake for Tara and her husband Todd Kapostasy for their first wedding anniversary.

Our judges include baking extraordinaire Kimberly Bailey, Chopped’s Maneet Chauhan and celebrity wedding planner David Tutera. Say Yes to the Dress host Randy Fenoli will also join the premiere episode as a special guest.
