They say there can be too many cooks in the kitchen, but what about bakers? We say, the more the merrier for the Baking Contest! Heat up the kitchen with your best recipes for bread, cookies, and more, just make sure you create your specialties by baking in your oven using a dry heat.

Have your cake (or another flavorful delicacy) and eat it too for a chance to win a KitchenAid Mixer, Proofer & Slow Cooker, or Digital Kitchen Scale. Watch out for soggy bottoms and burnt crusts. On your marks, get set, bake!

Create new masterpieces by learning what each ingredient does in your recipe with the Science of Baking Class!
