Holiday Baking Championship Season 9 Episode 05 Description
Holiday Movie Magic
With the popularity of English period dramas at an all-time high, host Jesse Palmer dons a Regency-era waistcoat and challenges the bakers to create a splendid holiday high tea. In the Main Heat, it’s all about the rom-com as bakers use an ingredient inspired by a holiday movie trope to create a dessert that’s dripping with festive decorations. After all the desserts are tasted by judges Nancy Fuller, Duff Goldman and Carla Hall, one baker will be sent out the door as the credits roll.
