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.
Tonight (Saturday, January 12, 2019) at 9pm ET/6pm PT, Discovery Family premieres "Sandcastle Cakes," a new episode of BAKE IT LIKE BUDDY. It won't be a walk on the beach for these two mother and daughter teams as they tackle Sandcastle Cakes. Buddy is accompanied by his sister Madeline and pastry chef, Erin, as they critique every detail down to the finest grain of sand.
