The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition begins on ABC Dec. 12. Cake and bread are on the menu for the cooking competition in the two episodes airing that night. Ten aspiring bakers step into the tent to see who bakes best.

Pastry chef Sherry Yard and baker and author Paul Hollywood return to judge the treats whipped up by the contestants.
