Blayre Wright, a proprietor of the Manheim-based wedding cake shop Flouretta Sweet, is slated to feature in Season 8 of Halloween Baking Championship. She will battle against 11 other contenders for the title and a cash reward of $25,000. The eight-episode series will be set in a haunted hotel and will launch on Food Network on September 12, 2022, at 9.00 p.m. ET. Blayre Wright, according to her LinkedIn page, is the designer of ‘Whimsically Modern & Uniquely Hand-Crafted Wedding Cakes, Occasion Cakes, and Sweet Treats.’ Her abilities will be judged by Stephanie Boswell, Carla Hall, and Zac Young. The winner will not only get the monetary prize but will also receive a vacation to the ten most haunted hotels in America.

According to the show’s official synopsis:

“On this season of HALLOWEEN BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP, host John Henson is the caretaker of a haunted hotel and will welcome the competitors for an eight-week stay, unless their baked goods fail to impress the judges, in which case they will have to “check out” and take the elevator to the mysterious 13th floor from which guests never return.”
