At the National Capital Area Cake Show, a Winter Wonderland theme pushes competitors to make their best representations of the holiday season in cake or cookie form. The only thing more colorful than the Santa Claus cookies and polar bear cakes are the people who bake them. Quirky bakers from all over America deal with last minute damages, finicky judges and fierce competition in order to reach the podium.
The world of competitive baking is a rapidly growing subculture full of passionate individuals creating masterful bakes from their home kitchens. Three talented bakers enter local competitions for a chance to have their work recognized by the best in the business. RaChelle is a perfectionist and a decade-long competitor who will enter bakes in any and every competition she can. Sumera is a nanny who has found her true calling in baking and is ready to see where her skills might take her. Lili is a unique baking hobbyist who is going to try her hand at competition for the first time.
