The new season of ‘Kids Baking Championship’ premieres Jan. 6, so look for Valerie Bertinelli when you tune in to watch it.

Get your baking equipment ready. Delaware’s own Valerie Bertinelli along with Duff Goldman will return to test the skills of twelve new talented young bakers on Food Network’s new season of Kids Baking Championship, premiering on Monday, Jan. 6 at 9 p.m.

Over the course of ten weeks, the bakers, ranging in age from 10 to 13, will whisk through new confectionery challenges. The one with the most delectable desserts will rise to the top and earn $25,000, a feature in Food Network Magazine, and the title of Kids Baking Champion, according to a news release.

“The return of Kids Baking Championship is the sweetest way to kick off the New Year, as viewers delight in watching the competition together as a family,” said Courtney White, president of Food Network, in a news release. “The new season promises more laughter and fun with Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli, as well as impressive desserts from the kid bakers.”

Throughout the season, the contestants test their creativity and baking talents in tough challenges that even seasoned experts would find difficult. From 3D dinosaur cookies, to Neapolitans desserts, to ice cream cone cupcakes and trifles, they are aiming to impress Goldman and Bertinelli with the taste and presentation of their sweet treats, according to the news release.

The show will run until March 9, when the winning contestant is crowned.
