A group of talented young bakers head to the Food Network kitchen for Kids Baking Championship Season 12. During the ten-episode season, each challenge is inspired by the school year. Before school is out for summer, one talented baker will be crowned champion.  

With Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman back at the judging table, the new class of bakers need to put forth their “A” game in order to win challenges. Although there will be a few mistakes along the way, the baker with the best report card will impress time and again. Even a few older fans could learn a lesson or two from these student bakers.  

Since the school year is the theme for Kids Baking Championship Season 12, everyone will be able to relate. Although the lunch box might no longer be metal and the dodgeball rules might have changed, there will always be commonalities tying all those school memories together.  

As Betsy Ayala, Head of Content, Food, Warner Bros. Discovery said, “School serves as a social hub, a space for learning, and a nurturing ground where children face challenges and foster growth – making it the ideal theme for the new season of Kids Baking Championship. The new challenges capture the essence of the school experience with every dessert.”  

Hopefully, viewers learn a few tips and trick along the way. In addition, the Kids Baking Championship show invites people to be more willing to experiment in the kitchen. From bold colors to creative flavors, there are plenty of reasons for even the most experienced bakers to watch this season. No one is ever too old to learn. It might not be opening a new chapter in a book, but learning should never stop.  

From cakes to tie-dye doughnuts, these young bakers will tackle every challenge with enthusiasm. Which three bakers will earn a spot in the finale? Be sure to watch each episode and cheer on a favorite kid baker.  

Kids Baking Championship Season 12 premieres on Monday, January 1 at 8 PM ET. It can be streamed on MAX the next day.
