It may only be February, but the Food Network is casting for its Halloween and Holiday Baking Championships right now. Yep, that’s right—you could be the next Food Network star! Imagine that, going from at-home baker or PTA pastry pro to celebrity chef. Who wouldn’t want that?!

So how can you become Food Network’s next star? If you have a passion for puff pastries, a love of all things cake or your friends and fam are always saying, “Hey, you should really do this professionally,” then the Halloween or Holiday Baking Championships might just be for you.

The Food Network is currently casting for two upcoming shows: Halloween Baking Championship and Holiday Baking Championship. These shows add to the list of competitive baking championships that the network’s viewers flock to watch on the regular. Experienced bakers and pastry chefs who are totally into the Halloween or holiday theme can apply online at the Baking Championships website.


And winning isn’t just about taking home the title of best baker—oh no. The 2017 Halloween Baking Championship winner took home a sweet $25,000 while the 2017 Holiday Baking Championship prize was a cool $50,000 for its winner!

If this opportunity sounds like it’s for you, head on over to the Food Network Baking Championships application, fill it out and submit your video clip. And remember that it’s all for TV, so along with your pastry-making prowess, personality counts too!
