Bake it Peacock’s Holiday Baking Contest features a magic musical by the host, former SNL costar Andy Samberg and Maya Rudolph. The series is described as: “All the ingredients to make the most beautiful holiday cake you’ve ever made.”
Bake it as a spin-off of the Emmy Award-nominated NBC crafting competition Making it, the 2018 series hosted by another popular comedy duo, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. Rudolph and Samberg were chosen to host the show earlier this year by Poehler, who is also the show’s executive producer. Both hosts seem to enjoy singing and they sing beautifully, as can be seen in some of the clips below. The duo is said to have been hired by the producer as comedian singer-songwriters to help create the accompaniment and lyrics.
The holiday competition will bring together eight teams of talented home-baking couples (including spouses, siblings, best friends, etc.) who will come together to create outstanding savory and sweet treats. based on themed challenges. Samberg and Rudolph will be there with them at the winter cabin, leading the festivities, delivering their iconic comedic relief, and even providing a little musical commentary along the way. Teams will compete for a sizable portion – a cash prize! But to win that award, holiday treats will be judged by four stubborn grandmothers, who are also excellent bakers.
In addition to hosting, Rudolph and Samberg executive produce the series, along with Poehler, Nicolle Yaron, Pip Wells, Kate Arend, and Dave Becky. Bake it produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
