Reality Competition, Reality, Food
Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes) won the king of cake in Season 1, and Buddy Valastro (Cake Boss) took home the crown in Season 2.
Now, these longtime rivals are back to battle in the ultimate baking brawl on Buddy vs. Duff.
This year, the eight- week competition will span the USA as the famed bakers and their teams of cake artists will tackle each cake challenge from their bakeries; Duff on the West Coast in Los Angeles, CA and Buddy on the east Coast in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Every aspect of what it means to be a true pastry artist and cake master will be tested as they must build elaborate, enormous cakes that fit the theme each week.
From safari cakes to pirates of the high seas, the bakers' techniques, decorating expertise, and creative imaginations will be pushed to the limit.
The cakes will be on display in an event space that transforms each week to become an immersive world based on the theme for the challenge.
50 professional cake artists from across the country will virtually judge the cake designs to determine which cake master is top tier.
The pressure is on as the two biggest names in cake vie to rise to the top and settle the score once and for all.
Throughout the season they will be challenged to impress with ancient world-inspired cakes, dazzle with souped up dream car cakes equipped with lights, engines, and hydraulics, and make mouths water with a decadent feast of savoury foods made entirely of cake.
If that's not enough, they must also design cakes showcasing a bug's world, and then they head to the high seas with pirate ship cakes and explore architectural wonders around the world.
In the finale, Buddy and Duff face the most monstrous challenge yet as they are tasked with creating monster cakes.
After weeks of intense competition, it all comes down to these final creations.
In the Season 3 premiere, "Animal Kingdom": Buddy and Duff kick off a new competition in an East Coast vs. West Coast battle.
With their teams of talented cake artists, they work in Jersey City, NJ, and Los Angeles to build cakes inspired by an African safari.
The teams have just two days to complete their cake creations before presenting them to their toughest judges yet - a panel of 50 talented cake artists from across America.
