Kids Baking Championship is a reality TV competition series that premiered on Food Network in 2015. The show was hosted by Duff Goldman, a baking expert who has appeared on several other Food Network shows, and Valerie Bertinelli, a renowned actress and chef. The show also featured Linsey Lam, a pastry chef and baking instructor, as a judge.

The premise of the show is simple: a group of talented young bakers, ranging in age from 9 to 13, compete in a series of baking challenges for the chance to win a $25,000 prize. The contestants are tasked with making a wide variety of sweet treats, from cupcakes and cookies to pies and cakes, utilizing their creativity, baking skills, and technical abilities.

Each episode of the show features two challenges. The first challenge, called the "pre-heat," is a small-scale baking challenge that introduces the contestants to the main theme of the episode. This challenge usually takes an hour, and the contestants are given a specific set of ingredients to work with, as well as a theme or technique to incorporate.

The second challenge, called the "main heat," is the centerpiece of the episode. In this challenge, the contestants are given a much more complex baking project to complete, usually within a longer time frame, such as three or four hours. The main heat challenges often relate to holidays or special occasions, such as Valentine's Day or a summer picnic, and require the contestants to use a wide variety of baking techniques and skills to create impressive and delicious baked goods.

Throughout the show, the contestants are judged on three main areas: taste, presentation, and technique. The judges taste each of the baked goods and evaluate them based on how they look, how they taste, and how well the contestants followed the recipe and used the required techniques.

One of the unique features of Kids Baking Championship is the presence of Duff Goldman, who not only co-hosts the show but also serves as a mentor to the contestants. Duff, who is known for his elaborate and creative cake designs, provides guidance and advice to the young bakers, helping them troubleshoot problems and offering tips and tricks to improve their baking skills.

Valerie Bertinelli, the other co-host, brings her own experience as a chef and cookbook author to the show. She often takes on the role of cheerleader and encourager, offering words of support and motivation to the contestants, and helping to create a positive and supportive atmosphere on set.

Linsey Lam, the pastry chef and judge, is responsible for evaluating the contestants' creations and providing feedback to help them improve their baking skills. Linsey is known for her keen eye for detail, and for her ability to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each baked good, from the texture of the cake to the decoration on top.

Overall, Kids Baking Championship is a fun and entertaining show that showcases the incredible talent and creativity of young bakers. The challenges are engaging and challenging, the judges are knowledgeable and supportive, and the contestants are inspiring and impressive. Whether you're a seasoned baker or just someone who loves watching talented kids make delicious treats, Kids Baking Championship is definitely worth checking out.

Kids Baking Championship is a series that is currently running and has 12 seasons (121 episodes). The series first aired on February 2, 2015.
