The Spring Baking Championship is in full swing and the fourth week was all about teams as the bakers looked to the great outdoors for inspiration.

The fourth episode of Spring Baking Championship on the Food Network was all about working in teams, as they looked for inspiration in the great outdoors. From making treats that are perfect for hiking, to creating a lovely dessert inspired by bike riding paths, this week was as much about giving Spring its due, as it was getting active outside.

We love team challenges on cooking competitions, as they can cause major shake ups in the competition. The reason for this, is the fact that different personalities may not always work well together. And when your competition life is on the line, it can be a balancing act of working together as a team and doing your own thing to stand out.

During round one of the competition, it looked like things were going swimmingly for all the competitors. Everyone got along, and for the most part all of the comments from the judges were positive. However, in the second round, the winning team from the first round got to change-up the teams, and that’s exactly what they did to two of the duos.

Things got interesting on the Spring Baking Championship as we went deeper into that second round. Not only did we see some bakes not go as smoothly as some teams may have wanted, but once Clinton Kelly brought out Spring picnic ingredients, it seemed like things slowed down for some of the teams.

While all of the teams were able to get their bike dessert displays completed, there were some desserts that didn’t quite live up to how good they looked. From flavors not popping, to the Paris-Brest dough not getting crisp enough, there were definitely some desserts that disappointed a bit.

That being said, this was another fun and vibrant episode of the Spring Baking Championship. From the theme of the great outdoors to the pops of Spring colors, these were all desserts we would have enjoyed tasting for ourselves.
