Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro and Charm City Cake‘s Duff Goldman will go head-to-head in the world’s greatest bake-off when Buddy vs. Duff premieres Sunday, March 10, at 9/8 c on Food Network.
In the series, the two will take on a series of challenges to demonstrate their baking expertise, starting each episode with a dessert bake-off—like re-creating and elevating their family’s favorite desserts for the judges—followed by a cake-off, featuring the most elaborate cakes their imaginations can generate.
Renowned chefs and judges Sherry Yard and Keegan Gerhard are joined throughout the competition by special guests such as Flip or Flop’s Christina Anstead, Florian Bellanger, Street Science’s Kevin Delaney, YouTube star Hannah Hart, Waylynn Lucas, Penn & Teller, Gesine Prado, Fast N’ Loud’s Richard Rawlings, Food Network’s Aarti Sequeira and many more to help determine the final champion.
To illustrate the sheer epic-ness of the face-off, Food Network teamed up with Los Angeles-based creative agency Stun to plaster the chefs and their creations all over some of the world’s most iconic buildings and monuments.
