NEW YORK - January 30, 2023 - Food Network's seasonal competitions return making the spring season sweeter than ever.

Then, at 10pm ET/PT Sunny Anderson returns to bring viewers into a fantastical Easter wonderland in the six-episode baking competition, Spring Baking Championship: Easter. Eight impressive bakers must create delicious, over-the-top holiday masterpieces inspired by colorful candy and whimsical Easter themes. Judges Stephanie Boswell and Zac Young help determine which baker has the skills to take the cake and win the coveted Golden Easter Egg. The new episodes of Spring Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship: Easter are also available to stream weekly beginning on March 6th on discovery+.

Spring Baking Championship kicks off with a special two-hour, super-sized episode on Monday, March 6th at 8pm ET/PT. In the premiere, 12 bakers enter the Spring Baking kitchen and are tasked by host Jesse Palmer to give a fresh Spring makeover to the desserts that made them fall in love with baking. Judges Kardea Brown, Nancy Fuller and Duff Goldman determine which baker's skills have blossomed to move on in the competition. One of the biggest culminations of love is a wedding - in the finale the three remaining bakers must design and create a dream wedding cake for a real couple.
