According to Courtney White, Senior Vice President Programming, Scripps Networks Interactive, the new season of Spring Baking Championship will feature “all the hallmarks of spring including flowers, vibrant colors, bountiful fruit, and outdoor elements for inspiration.” Hopefully this new season will push the creativity level in the kitchen. Could food trends, like edible flowers or bee pollen, be included in this season’s challenges?

Fans can expect a wide array of baking challenges. Some of the anticipated themes for the new season include “beautiful baked bites befitting spring such as cupcake flower arrangements, picnic-perfect mini pies, berry-infused desserts, mirror-glazed gazing balls, ombre cakes and more.” Hopefully, the bakers will offer some tricks for the home bakers and viewers.
