Kids Baking Championship Season 6 is around the corner and this is one of our favorite shows of the year to watch together. Looking at the episode list makes us all super hungry, but we love that they are going to not only tackle bacon, but also try to settle a debate that rages in our house as well, brownies or blondies. It even looks like in episode 7 this will be a challenge that you could do at home with our own children.
