Food Network Challenge has selected Philip Koch of Santa Claus, Ind., owner of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, the Santa Claus Christmas Store, and, as a guest judge for their Christmas Classics episode.

The hour long holiday segment pits four cake designers against each other in a race to make a classic Christmas cake about Christmas tales and carols. Two food experts, along with Koch, judge the designers on not only craftsmanship of the cake, but also how well they incorporate the Christmas theme. Koch was chosen as a leading Christmas expert after a nationwide search, according to a news release.

According to the show’s website, “The designers who have been nice get an extra gift, but the competitors who have been naughty get an unwelcome surprise. The designer who infuses their cake with a little Christmas magic will get a $10,000 check in their stocking.” The episode airs this Sunday (Nov. 27) at 8 p.m. EST.

Food Network Challenge airs on Sunday nights on the Food Network Channel, which has an estimated viewership of approximately 85 million. For more information about the show visit
