Former Olympic Figure Skaters Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will be hosting a new show on Food Network according to their recent social media posts. Besides being former figure skaters Tara and Johnny are also a broadcast team which became popular after the Sochi Winter Olympics. Tara Lipinksi posted the following message and picture on Instagram:

"We have some exciting news! We are hosting a new @foodnetwork series and I couldn’t be more excited. Anything that involves @johnnygweir and cake, I’m in. 🎂💃🕺🏻 Any guesses on what this show could be about? #foodnetwork #partnersincrime #cake 👗 @likelynyc"
Tara has been posting Instagram stories of her and Johnny on set and it looks like the show is a wedding cake competition show. Also appearing on her Instagram stories was Randy Fenoli who is a fashion designer of wedding dresses and also host of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress. With Randy being on set, that supports the theory that it is a wedding cake themed competition show.
This will not be Johnny Weir's first time being on Food Network. Johnny has also appeared on Food Network before as a competitor on Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-off Season 2 and also Chopped All-Stars.
When more details about the series are announced, I will do another post or update this one. It seems like Food Network is going all-in on cake/baking related series.
