Cable TV network TLC has commissioned a fourth season of its hit series Next Great Baker, hosted by Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro, and is searching for new confection-obsessed competitors to battle it out for the ultimate in cake-building challenges. Premiering in 2014, the season adds a new layer to the format, as each entrant will be part of a two-person team, working together to capture the title and a grand prize that includes $100,000.

Casting for the season is in process, with a nationwide search for 10 teams of two people who share a passion for pastries. Interested applicants can find more information at
