Cake Boss' Buddy Valastro puts 10 talented pastry chefs through the ringer to earn the title of Next Great Baker. Each week, Buddy pushes the contestants' baking skills to the limit through a series of challenges. At stake - $50,000 cash and a chance to work side-by-side with Buddy at Carlo's Bakery.
With two new experts by his side, Buddy the Cake Boss judges ten pairs of bakers in the first phase of the fourth season. Each team takes a bite of the Big Apple as they race to iconic city cites for inspiration in their inaugural cake challenge.
