Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY, two talented, passionate and creative baking family duos face-off against each other in a fun head-to-head bake off at Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey. The contestants -- spanning from professionals to emerging chefs to passionate weekend bakers -- have every fiber of their baking abilities tested as Buddy sets unique challenges. With help from his own family and Carlo's Bakery staff, Buddy and two members of his team mentor and judge the visiting family's delicious creations on design, flavor, technique, finish and how well the contestants followed a central theme -- ranging from unicorns, sci-fi, 3D, Halloween and much more! The two teams have only four hours to design, bake, and decorate a cake for the chance to win a $1,000 cash prize, professional baking supplies and most importantly, bragging rights! Throughout the competition, Buddy and his family members inspire and help the bakers take their skills to the next level with tips, real-time feedback and design assistance. This season, teams from across the country -- including mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, cousins, sisters, twins, best friends and more -- compete in a cake battle where family is just as important as the ingredients. BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY premiered on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 9-10pm ET/6-7pm PT, as Discovery Family debuted back-to-back new episodes.
On Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, Discovery Family premiered the season finale of BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY. In the season ender, "Till Death Do Us Part Cakes," husband and wife teams hope it's not the end of the road for them as they make cakes about their lives together. Buddy and judges Mauro and Madeline must decide which cake has the perfect marriage of flavor, meaning, and design.
