Endemol Shine Germany, a Banijay company, today announces it will produce Masters of Sweet for RTL. The brand-new 4 x 90’ competition series will air in the country later this year.
Having dedicated their lives to creating showstopping sculptures made from sugar, cake, ice-cream, and chocolate, six of the best professional pâtissier teams will compete to create the perfect edible dream. They may be known locally for their amazing creations, but on each episode of Masters of Sweet, they will face a new challenge, from gigantic replicas, which can sometimes be over 1.5 metres high, to spectacular fashion creations. The pressure is on as amidst the creativity and impressive skill, the judges must select a team to send home at the end of each episode. The winning team will not only walk away with the title but also a sum of 25,000 euros.
Fabian Tobias, CEO at Endemol Shine Germany comments: “From the Black Forest Gateau to wine gums, it is fair to say many who live in Germany have a sweet tooth. We are looking forward to showcasing the skill of our pâtissiers with this brand-new format, whilst enjoying their creations and hopefully we can inspire some amateurs at home.”
James Townley, Global Head of Content Development at Banijay says: “Adding to Banijay Germany’s impressive slate, Masters of Sweet perfectly combines creativity, delicious food, craftmanship and competition. This new format taps into the global demand we are seeing for expertise-based competition formats that appeal to the whole family, joining MasterChef, LEGO® Masters, Domino Challenge, Interior Design Masters and Banijay Productions Germany’s Cream of the Crop (Allererste Sahne), which is set to return for a second series.”
A leading TV production company, Endemol Shine Germany has recently launched the third season of LEGO®Masters on RTL and will bring the fifth season of The Masked Singer to German audiences later this year. Other key titles include Big Brother, Beauty and the Nerd, and Kitchen Impossible.
Banijay Rights will distribute Masters of Sweet internationally.
