The Great Holiday Baking Show

Based on the hit UK series "The Great British Bake Off," this series is hosted by Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding") and husband Ian Gomez ("Cougar Town"), and stars some of the nation's best amateur bakers as they compete in a series of themed challenges and eliminations, all hoping to be crowned "America's Best Holiday Baker."

This week's Signature Bake finds the bakers making breakfast pastries, perfect for Christmas morning. The Technical Bake features one of judge Mary Berry's most festive and fruity recipes. And the Showstopper finds the bakers building elaborate centerpieces from cream puffs and other puffed pastry pieces.

The stakes are high in this episode as it will decide the three bakers who make it to the final. Some bakers will impress while others fold under pressure on "The Great Holiday Baking Show."

James Beard and award-winning pastry chef and author Johnny Iuzzini join England's "Royal Queen of Baking," author and television personality Mary Berry, as judges, where each week they will taste the decadent and delicious holiday fare these bakers create as they throw down their best culinary skills.

"The Great Holiday Baking Show" is from Love Productions and is executive-produced by Richard McKerrow and Joey Allen.
