Buddy Valastro and Duff Goldman face-off in an epic baking battle for the chance to be crowned the undisputed king of cake on the new series Buddy vs. Duff. Premiering Sunday, March 10 at 9|8c, the 6-week competition will challenge every aspect of what it means to be a true pastry artist and cake master. From techniques, to design skills, and taste, each episode will measure their talent in two rounds — a Bake-Off to test their baking abilities, followed by a Cake-Off to showcase their creative imaginations and decorating expertise.

The battle begins with Buddy and Duff makeing their most beloved family recipes in the first Bake-Off. Then in the Cake-Off round, they must construct car-inspired cakes with all the bells and whistles. Throughout the season they will be challenged to create carnival treats, intricate Bollywood-inspired cakes, and satisfy customers during the morning rush at the iconic Randy’s Donuts in Los Angeles. They'll also design desserts for an exclusive dog pampering party and enchant audiences with illusion cakes for a special show at Hollywood’s Magic Castle.
