Halloween Baking Championship Full Episode Guide

  • Host John Henson instructs the three remaining bakers to construct a Ghostembouche, or ghostly version of a croquembouche tower; then they face the final challenge of creating a bleeding zombie cake for the judges.

  • John Henson hosts as the remaining four bakers go digging to create terrifyingly tasty grave-robber desserts. Then for the main heat, it's a night at the cemetery as the competitors sculpt marbled tomb cakes to impress judges Carla Hall, Katie Lee and Zac Young to land a spot in the finale.

  • Host John Henson's "mummy" issues inspire the pre-heat challenge of crepe cakes, and judges Carla Hall, Katie Lee and Zac Young decide on the creepiest. In the main heat, the five remaining bakers use classic fall ingredients to create jack-o'-lantern pies that are half scary and half sweet.

  • Comedian John Henson hosts as the six remaining bakers team up to create desserts that pay tribute to the iconic Addams Family -- scary on the outside and sweet on the inside. During the main heat challenge, the wonderfully creepy family is honored with "dead velvet" cakes, and judges Carla Hall, Katie Lee and Zac Young determine who's spooky enough to move on to the next round.

  • The bakers use fresh flavors and colorful decorations to bring old desserts back to life and impress the judges in the Day of the Dead main heat.

  • John Henson kicks off the competition by revealing all the skeletons in his family's closet to inspire the eight bakers as they make scary skeleton desserts. The main heat is monster madness as the bakers conjure up monster-under-the-bed creations.

  • Inspired by a mysterious "skull man," the bakers enter the graveyard to bring skull desserts to life in the pre-heat. For the main heat, the bakers must create a championship-worthy nightmare cake based on common nightmare themes like falling, being chased or being visited by the dead. The baker that can face their fears and come out on top will be named Halloween Baking Champion!

  • A group of talented bakers enter the fortune-telling tent at the Circus of Dread in the pre-heat challenge. The competitors are tasked with creating tarot card desserts featuring blood orange, fig or passion fruit. The bakers then enter the Creepy Clown Hall of Fame in the main heat where they create impressive desserts that will land one of them in the finale.

  • It's bridal season for Halloween lovers and since bridal showers often have petit fours, the bakers are creating "petit horrors" in the pre-heat challenge. In the main heat, it's time for a Halloween wedding! Each happy couple -- vampire and troll, werewolf and mummy, skeleton and robot, witch and goblin, zombie and ghost -- gets a unique Halloween wedding cake.

  • A monster has ransacked the kitchen and is on the loose! The bakers work together in the pre-heat challenge to create a 3-D suspect sketch out of pate a choux to help track him down. The sketch helps puts the monster behind bars but now he's hungry for the main heat challenge that involves monster-sized Halloween deserts like giant cupcakes, pies, cream puffs and more.

  • In the "Silence of the Yams" pre-heat challenge, bakers make yam desserts that evoke classic scary movie cliches from chainsaws and hockey masks to bloody knives and creepy dolls; bakers create a pumpkin patch out of mini bundt cakes.

  • The competition begins with a deliciously difficult pre-heat as the eight Halloween bakers weave spider web desserts with creatures trapped inside. In the main heat, wily witch hunter host John Henson and judgesCarla Hall, Lorraine Pascale and Zac Young challenges the bakers to create melting desserts that reveal a Halloween item inside.
