Getting to know the amazing group of bakers, throwing farm-centric challenges at them, and eating all of the incredible sweets that they baked up was nothing short of a dream. Throw in the opportunity to eat all of these sweets with Kardea, Nancy and Duff, and I’m still pinching myself. I cannot wait for audiences to see this season!”
“I love spring and the change of seasons. It is a time to reflect, start anew, and to get ready for Easter!” said Anderson. “There is nothing better than being part of this fantasy world featuring out of this world bakers creating fun and delectable holiday masterpieces that will leave viewers breathless.”

In the premiere, 12 bakers enter the Spring Baking barn to make fruit tarts that showcase their personalities, while also creating floral bonanza cakes.
