    I don't always watch these shows, but a member from a Halloween forum where I participate is among the contestants on the Halloween Baking Championship, so that adds an element of interest and I've been watching.
    He's holding on so far ... but he'd better sharpen his game or he'll be out soon.

    There are two Halloween Wars shows. One is in the kitchen where teams compete against each other; the other is in the outdoors with two teams - three pumpkin carvers, one cake and one sugar person competing for $15,000 per show. The same teams compete for three shows. The judges (2) and host are different except for the male judge on the Halloween Baking Championship show. Confusing, but different.

    Oh, and then there is the baking competition - no pumpkin carving - but it shares a judge with the outdoor pumpkin show.

    The outdoor Halloween War teammates still stress over winning money just like the indoor teammates. That part of those two shows is the most off-putting.

    I'm enjoying Halloween Baking Championship. The goodies look spooky and good, and I adore Carla Hall.

    I only get 2 of the Halloween Food shows. The baking and the pumpkin carving, scene making ones. So amazing to see the creativity that many of these contestants have!

    Re: Food Network shows

    I'm confused. I've only seen the first two episodes of the original indoor version of Halloween Wars. What happened to it? I only see listings for the first episode of the new outside version(which isn't anywhere near as good as the original).

    I have Halloween Wars set to record on my DVR, and it records both versions. The only way I tell the difference on the recordings is that, the indoor version has episode numbers and the outdoor version does not.

    I don't care for the outdoor version as much.

    On Baking Championship last night, I felt awful when the guys' Baked Alaska-type dessert melted all over the plate. I don't know why they would do an ice cream dessert, though, if it had to sit and wait for the judges to get to it. Ice cream waits for no one!

    Now I totally want to make a brain cake for Halloween.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Scooping out the undone inside didn't hurt the winners even if he (?) almost fainted when she did that in order to get it cooked all the way through. By filling it with custard or whatever made the cakes very interesting and different textures. I always wondered how they got the brain folds, now I know...fondant.
