Spring is right around the corner, with another season of "Spring Baking Championship" blooming before our eyes. 

The 10-episode eighth season, which will premiere Feb. 28 on Food Network, will once again challenge the best bakers in America to create and elevate springtime desserts to win over the judges. 

Romuald Guiot, a French pastry chef in Los Angeles and one of the 12 contestants competing, told FOX Television Stations Group, being on the show was a "dream."

"That was wonderful," Guiot said of the opportunity. "It’s a big, big show in the U.S. Everyone is watching it. It’s a dream. It’s a dream coming true."

"I really love doing eclairs," Guiot said of his signature dessert.

Throughout the season Yeh will deliver some of the biggest twists in "Spring Baking Championship" history, with double eliminations and a baker returning to the competition to shake things up. 

"It was a lot of pressure actually," Guiot added.
