about The Great American Baking Show

Back for a fourth season on The ABC Television Network, The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition, based on the hit U.K. series The Great British Bake Off, returns THURSDAY, DEC. 6 (9:00 – 11:00 p.m. EST). Showcasing bakers from around the country each week, the series puts their best recipes forward as they compete in holiday-themed challenges and eliminations, all hoping to be named America's Best Amateur Baker.

Joining as host this season, Spice Girl and television personality Emma Bunton, alongside returning host Anthony "Spice" Adams, will present bakers with weekly challenges as they turn up the heat in the kitchen creating sweet and savory holiday fare.

Joining the judges panel this season is three-time James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Sherry Yard. Each week, Yard and baker and best-selling cookbook author Paul Hollywood (The Great British Bake Off) will taste decadent and delicious treats while sharing advice and commentary in regards to the bakers' techniques and skills. 

The Great American Baking Show is from Love Productions and developed by Richard McKerrow and Anna Beattie. Executive Producers are Richard McKerrow, Kevin Bartel, Faye Stapleton and Simon Evans.
