Judges Carla Hall, Katie Lee and Zac Young, join in to test the bakers, who must show off their skills over six episodes with terrifyingly delicious challenges. From skeleton desserts to monster madness, only one baker can frighten the competition for a chance to win the $25,000 grand prize and to be featured in Food Network Magazine.
