Toronto – Food Network Canada has announced a new baking competition called Wall of Bakers, a series that tests the precision skills of Canada’s home bakers as they compete in three rounds in front of a dozen of the country’s most accomplished pastry chefs.

The goal is a $10,000 grand prize and the title of Wall of Bakers champion. The Corus Studios series debuts March 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada.
