TV show description:
This baking competition series features skilled amateur bakers as they compete in challenges in pursuit of a $250,000 grand prize.

The 10 bakers are chosen from a nationwide search of amateur bakers at local casting bake-offs. Proving the joy of baking’s broad appeal, the contestants come from all different backgrounds, having varied lives and jobs. The one thing they all have in common is their desire to turn professional.

Each week, the bakers competing in three unique challenges — “Signature Bake,” “Technical Bake” and “Showstopper Bake.” The contestant who out-bakes the rest is that week’s “Star Baker,” while the one whose creations fail to impress is eliminated.

The final challenge is between the three remaining contestants, one of whom will go on to be crowned the best amateur baker in America and win the cash prize. The winner will also be awarded a publishing contract with Simon & Schuster to publish their own cookbook with Gallery Books.

Please don’t cancel this show. Give it a chance to find its footing. Not every show takes off on its first season. it can take a second season to develop the audience.

I was really looking forward to this show being renewed. Love the fact that it takes place in a bright country spot, and a show with baking was such a nice change. Loved everyone on the show too – Jeff Foxworthy, and the judges despite the recent negative press. Hope it returns!

I LOVED this show! It was the talk @ coffee time among friends and family dinners. Jeff Foxworthy is funny, caring, endearing: a great Host! I love THE AMERICAN BAKING COMPETION so much that… I’d love to be a contestant!

I felt that this contest was fixed…clearly Darlene had the most wins…better skill and technique than Brian…I really felt that the overall should have been at the top in picking the winner. I liked the show up until the winner was announced…Jeff Foxworthy was the really fun part of the entertainment….please reconsider finalist criteria….Darlene not winning was why I don’t watch American idol anymore….remember Crystal Bowesox?

Please don’t cancel this show!! I love the way it is shot. Most cooking shows take place in a dark studio kitchen. This one is in the country and is very light. I also love it, that it is just baking. Hope it will be renewed!!

We are enjoying this program. Hope it is renewed.
