Baking is a time-honored tradition for the holidays. And the best judges to taste the baked goods are actual grandmothers, who are the most lovable and toughest critics for holiday deserts. In Peacock’s Baking It, contestants compete for granny recognition that will earn them the top prize and bragging rights.
Here is the description for the reality competition series:
Baking It is a holiday event series where teams of two talented home bakers compete with their most delectable savory and sweet edible creations. They are hoping to win $50,000 and who better to judge and critique at the holidays than four very opinionated real-life grandmas, who happen to be fantastic bakers themselves.
The hosts are Maya Rudolph and Adam Sandberg.
