The Truth About Team Dough Angels From Holiday Wars: Season 3

Food Network's "Holiday Wars" is back for a third season and fans are breaking out the cookies and milk as they follow this sweet special at home. Hosted by Maneet Chauhan of "Chopped" and "Iron Chef" fame, this year's judging adds additional food expertise beyond that offered from past season hosts, including Raven-Symoné and Jonathan Bennett (via Distractify). This year, the prize is set for even higher stakes at $25,000, more than double than that of 2018.

Nine teams of three expert bakers compete on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST for this coveted prize as well as bragging rights. One of those teams is channeling some heavenly baking talent in the form of the Dough Angels featuring Asia Coffee, Ramon Camacho, and Jen Barney (via Food Network). Each baker on this team is talented and highly accomplished with stunning and beautiful baking skills — you'll absolutely want to know more about each team member.

Ramon Camacho of Bubu's Cakes and More

Ramon Camacho is the pastry chef and cake artists behind Bubu's Cakes & More (via Instagram). Camacho's vibrant cake artistry perfectly captures our modern media binges with an almost pop art-like style and a fair amount of whimsy. Think Cocomelon, Roblox, Rick and Morty, Barbie, and more, and you'll probably find a cake to match in Camacho's portfolio based out of Winterhaven, Florida (via Facebook).

Thrilled to be part of this top-baking team, Camacho shared a teaser for his Food Network appearances on Instagram, announcing, "I can finally share what I've been keeping secret for months. I'll be a contestant in the [Food Network]'s ['Holiday Wars'], airing this Sunday, November 7th! Be on the lookout for our group, the Dough Angels (comprised of [Asia Coffee], Jen, and I), as well as all the surprises that are soon to come!" The pastry chef continued, "I feel beyond happy and grateful for this wonderful opportunity that I'll never forget! Thank you, I count on your support as always."

Asia Coffee of Cakes by Coffee

Asia Coffee (yes, that's her real name) is the baker behind Cakes by Coffee and an Indianapolis native. Coffee has been baking and teaching custom cake decorating classes since 2012, which includes over 1,500 in-person lessons and a hefty YouTube following of over 50,000 subscribers (via Cakes by Coffee). Describing the type of work she does, Coffee told Leah Rife Photography, "I make cakes, cupcakes, cookies and cake pops for small gatherings; usually birthday and graduation parties!"

Baker Coffee's cake tutorials picked up significantly over the pandemic when in-person classes became limited, but her personal style is highly diverse as seen when browsing her Facebook. She has cakes both elegant and comical, sculptural and simple ready to meet a diverse array of event requests. Describing more about her life Coffee added, "My husband and I are parents to four boys, ranging in age from 19 months to 16 years old. Of course, I love making their birthday cakes! I'm also a Sugar Angel for the organization Icing Smiles, through which I volunteer my time and talent to provide a cake to families who have been impacted by the illness of a child."

Jen Barney of Meringue Bakery and Cafe

Jen Barney is already a Food Network veteran, winning Seasons 4 and 5 of the "Holiday Baking Championship" in addition to multiple other food competition experiences (via Meringue Bakery & Cafe). The Wisconsin baker of Meringue Bakery & Cafe is sometimes called the "Doyenne of Desserts" for her widely recognized baking skills. Barney is especially known for her wedding cakes, which she tries to source with local and seasonal ingredients. When she isn't baking, Barney enjoy family time with daughter Millie, son Wyatt, and her husband Brian.

Although she's a Food Network veteran, Barney says that every time she is chosen to compete in a baking competition it is "an honor." Speaking of her time spent at Season 3 of "Holiday Wars," she shares the experience involved highly complicated cakes and noted the series as the "hardest (Food Network) show that [she's] ever done," (via Lacrosse Tribune). While the level of competition is fierce, Barney readily expresses her enthusiasm for being part of the team on her Instagram, which also frequently shares new cakes and tips for beginning bakers. "I am so excited to get the opportunity to compete in ['Holiday Wars']," she recently shared.
