Fresh off a hard-fought victory against Duff Goldman in Season 2 of Buddy vs. Duff, Buddy Valastro is once again donning his baker’s jacket, this time to tackle a different seasoned competitor: Christmas.

With the holidays right around the corner, Buddy vs. Christmas will showcase the Cake Boss and his crew of baking helpers as they face off against a new highly specialized artist each week. This four-part show premieres on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 10|9c and is set to feature artists who are masters of their crafts — think Broadway set designers and an expert glassblower, among other savvy creators. Each team will be tasked with fashioning life-size Christmas displays to be presented at high-profile events nearby. It’s the more the merrier when it comes to holiday cheer, so all competitors should get ready to deck the halls like never before.

It’s no secret that Buddy is a guru in the world of cake, but how will he fare when the challenge switches to something less sweet? He and his team will have to rely on their fierce imagination and resourcefulness if they want to impress the judges. Anything can happen — even during the most-wonderful time of the year.

Mark your calendars for the premiere of Buddy vs. Christmas on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 10|9c.
