Richard Blais hosts the country's top bakers as they battle it out to create Halloween's spookiest and most-irresistible treats. From spider cupcakes, cheesecake coffins and witch finger cookies to towering confections of terror, these bakers must prove their skills to judges Ron Ben-Israel, Carla Hall and Sherry Yard to land the $25,000 prize and the title of Halloween Baking Champion!
Eight bakers show off their decorating skills by creating Halloween candy-filled cookies; for the main heat, it's oozy fun with sublime slime desserts where bakers can make any treat, but it must be filled with a gooey slime.
Seven remaining bakers must make witches' fingers and toes and create a sauce to dip them in; the witch theme goes a step further in the main heat when the bakers must create desserts that look like witches, complete with edible brooms.
Bakers work in teams and put their minds together to create the most outrageous and delicious left brain/right brain desserts; in the main heat, the bakers face their fears by using common phobias like insects and ghosts as inspirations for desserts.
Five remaining bakers take a light, sweet and utterly harmless dessert and head to the dark side; it's a main heat filled with frights as the bakers make scary mask desserts to spook the judges; one baker is eliminated at the end of the round.
Four remaining bakers attempt to make desserts that taste like their favorite candy bars; bakers face death by chocolate and must create a dessert that combines chocolate with odd ingredients; one baker is eliminated.
The three remaining bakers must make a glowing edible centerpiece and three different creepy treats for a spooky Halloween party dessert bar. In the final challenge the bakers must create Jack-O-Lantern cakes that light up. Only one winning baker will carve out the title of Halloween Baking Champion and take home the grand $25,000 prize!
