Plot Synopsis

In each one-hour episode of BUDDY VS. CHRISTMAS, Buddy Valastro competes against a different group of non-cake artists, as they create designs that conquer Christmas while trying to impress two judges: cartoonist and comedian Jason Chatfield and lifestyle blogger Courtney Quinn. Food Network premiered a new episode of this series at 10pm ET/PT each Sunday from November 22 through December 13:

"Christmas Extravaganza" (Sunday, November 22): Buddy and his team build a life-size gingerbread house to compete against a life-size snow globe designed by Tony and Emmy Award-winning scenic designer David Gallo, his partner Viveca Gardiner, and their team. Who will win this interactive Christmas challenge?

"The Night Before Christmas" (Sunday, November 29): Buddy and his team go up against famed glassblower Deborah Czeresko's team to make light-filled creations. Buddy's piece depicts a Christmas Eve accident that finds Santa tangled in holiday lights, and Deborah's work incorporates glass and neon into icicles, mistletoe and a mischievous glass mouse who's taken a bite out of Santa's cookie.

"Toys, Toys, Toys" (Sunday, December 6): Buddy competes against LEGO artists and brothers Corey and Travis Samuels in building an incredible, unique toy. Buddy's team creates an adult-size drivable elf sleigh cake as they take on the LEGO team's life-size action figure.

"Santa's Workshop" (Sunday, December 13): In a challenge to create pieces that tell a story, Buddy competes against animatronic expert Lou Nasti, who's spent his career building Christmas-themed works of art. Which creation will win? Buddy's holiday cake-making factory and Lou's version of Santa's workshop, complete with a talking reindeer.
