Series Premiere Sunday, November 25th at 8pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - October 18, 2012 - Remarkable artists of all types team up for a one-of-a-kind competition to create the most jaw-dropping displays on earth in the new series Sugar Dome premiering Sunday, November 25th at 8pm ET/PT. Each week, three teams comprised of artists from completely different disciplines enter the Sugar Dome to battle it out and create never-before-seen, food art masterpieces. Cake designers and sugar artists team up with professional fruit carvers, graffiti artists, sand sculptors and more for a delicious rollercoaster ride to compete for the champion title and a $15,000 prize.

"We wanted Sugar Dome to take cake and sweet artistry to levels of creativity and innovation never seen before," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network., "Viewers will be in awe of the spectacles created by these unconventional teams of food artists."

In one episode over the course of the series, animatronics experts join forces with cake and sugar artists in a grueling challenge to create a work of art that captures the magic and danger of the legendary fire-breathing dragon. In another episode, teams of sweet artists and professional illustrators combine their talents to bring the iconic world of Dr. Seuss to life. The competition continues as Hollywood costume designers, cake and sugar artists work together in a whimsical battle to create edible displays inspired by The Wizard of Oz.
