    How did Linsey's bologna sandwich not make this album?! https://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/kids-baking-championship/photos/the-best-dessert-imposters

    From a baking perspective, seems like these first 3 challenges were pretty simple: Cake, cupcake, cake-using-cake-mold. And decorating hasn't been all that challenging either. Anyone else agree? Was feeling pretty good about my two early picks making the top 2, but then my 3rd got eliminated. Better than last season, though! Agree with others that I thought Tarek should have been bottom 2, but ultimately agreed with the choice for elimination. Looking forward to next week's imposter challenge!

    FYI - looks like Linsey from Season 4 will be on The Kitchen this Saturday morning on Food Network! https://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/the-kitchen/episodes/fun-family-favorites Fun Family Favorites The Kitchen is serving up quick dishes the whole family will love. Jeff Mauro combines two family favorites in his Pizza Stuffed Chicken, and Katie Lee's Sesame Cauliflower is a takeout fakeout with no guilt. Geoffrey Zakarian ups his grilled cheese game with his Iron Chef Grilled Cheese, and the hosts share stress-free hacks for organizing snacks. Then Kids Baking Championship winner Linsey Lam stops by to bake her Ice Cream Cupcakes and sticks around to help judge a treat throwdown with amped-up pudding cups!

    in the first 5 seasons, the winners have all been the oldest (mostly 13, Season 3 winner was 12, but that was the oldest that year). Season 6 winner (Paige) was 11. But I wasn't necessarily referring to their actual age, just their physical maturity.

    Wasn't able to see the premier episode until today. Great group of bakers! Like last season, they started off with a pretty simple challenge, and all but one got through without much drama. As others have said, even the girl who went home seemed to have a pretty good sense about what was going on. My early bet on the Final 3 are Trevin, Taylor, and Tori. None were in the top 3, but all seem like they are talented and will get their sea-legs under them as the season goes on. One thing I noticed; with the exception of Sophie and Brady, all of the bakers seem a bit more mature (physically) than in seasons past. Anyone else think this? In prior seasons, most of the kids seemed solidly pre-pubescent, but not so much this season. IMHO, of course.

    Lots of kids from the south!

    I believe Meadow was only 10 years old, whereas Davis was 13 and Paige was 11. As I said above, with another year or two of experience, Meadow would have done much better.

    In the context of former contestants, am curious how people here think the previous winners and finalists stack up with each other? My favorites over all of the seasons are Linsey (winner) and Yashimabet (finalist).

    This would be fun just to see what these kids look like after they hit puberty 😂

    Congrats to Paige on a well deserved win! Going into the episode, I definitely thought it would have been one of the other two (and I was rooting for Meadow), but about halfway through it felt like everything was going Paige’s way. Even the omg moment where she had forgotten to add the pretzels to her buttercream quickly turned around into a non-issue. Decorating-wise, I liked what she was going for. All she had to do was make more and bigger chess pieces for that middle layer (like Davis’ dancers) and it would have been great. Taste-wise, Paige’s cake was probably amazing! I did have the feeling Davis was going to fall short. He’s very talented, but as I’ve said before, he only had one time the whole season where everything went well (the tart challenge), and I just had the feeling that he wasn’t going to have everything go well here. As soon as I saw how he was making his top tier, I knew it wasn’t going to be his day. And not working the cherries right was the knockout blow. That said, he attempted a lot of cool stuff, and I enjoy his decorating skills! Meadow, very hard to believe she was one of the youngest bakers on the show. Great poise, talent and resourcefulness. I would guess that if she was on the show 2 years in the future, she would easily be the winner. Add 2 years of experience to what she made tonight and I think it would be amazing. The challenge for this finale was decent. I liked how they tied it to a kid’s school activity, and it did open the opportunity for some good creativity. overall, a good season! The kids were likable, maybe not as super-skilled as the promos tried to paint, but good enough to enjoy seeing what they produced. Looking forward to the next season!

    Actually, Aiden from season 3 was the only winner to have been in the bottom once during the season. Hollis, Rebecca, Linsey and Natasha all were never in the bottom. (I guess Linsey was technically in the bottom once, but it was the semifinal where they picked Alex as the winner and then had the three remaining bakers as the bottom; but Linsey was clearly not in danger of being eliminated in that episode.)

    Interesting perspective. I actually feel like they’ve heard some criticisms that not enough boys do well on the show, so they have been trying to engineer the cast to get better boys on the show. So far this season, it feels like they’ve made mostly the right choices for elimination.

    That I’m not sure. There have been kids in previous seasons who made cookies who had extra dough which came in handy. At a minimum these kids have probably watched the previous seasons and knew having extra dough would be a good idea.

    Forgot to mention: the twist seemed kind of pointless in this episode.

    I enjoyed this challenge, but I do kind of wonder if the kids were coached on how to do it. That they all did the same thing in using stencils seemed unlikely without some coaching. Congrats to Davis, that Mona Lisa was seriously impressive! That said, I did think that Meadow should have won given that hers tasted better and met the challenge of being a puzzle a little better (IMHO). And yes, while her whipped cream and his ice cream were extra, hers was more successful there, too. All that said, I don't have a problem with Davis winning this. It was pretty obvious that Jaxon was going to lose when his cookies didn't work out as a puzzle. When he was trying to trim the cookies, you could see that it was way too crumbly. And yes, his decorating was a bit of a disaster. I wasn't a big fan of Paige at the start of the season, but she has grown on me. I think Davis will win the whole thing, although I think Meadow might be the better baker. Would be fine with any of these three winning, tho Paige is the dark horse.
