Disney Channel and Tastemade are working together on “Disney’s Magic Bake-Off,” a competitive series for kids 6-14 that combines baking and ingenuity. Dara Reneé and Issac Ryan Brown will co-host the 13-episode series and, along with Disneyland resort pastry chef Graciela Gomez, will guide the tiny contestants as they create cakes inspired by the magic of Disney.
