Baker's Dozen is a reality baking competition series that premiered on Hulu in 2021. The show is hosted by Tamera Mowry-Housley, who is best known for her roles in Sister, Sister and The Real, and features Bill Yosses and Miranda Guiles as the judges for the competition. The show consists of eight episodes, each running for approximately 30 minutes.

Baker's Dozen follows thirteen amateur bakers from across the country as they compete against one another in a series of challenges. Each week, the bakers are given a theme or specific baking technique to work with and are asked to create a variety of baked goods, from cakes and pastries to bread and confections. The judges critique the bakers' creations based on flavor, texture, and presentation, and ultimately decide who will be eliminated from the competition.

One of the unique aspects of Baker's Dozen is that, unlike many other baking competition shows, there is no grand prize at the end of the competition. Instead, the bakers are simply competing for the honor of being named the best amateur baker in the competition. This takes some of the pressure off the bakers and allows them to focus more on enjoying the experience of competing and improving their baking skills.

Another unique aspect of the show is its focus on community and inclusivity. Several of the bakers come from diverse backgrounds and share their personal stories and experiences with the audience. The show also highlights local bakeries and food businesses in the communities where the competition takes place. In addition, each episode features a baking tutorial segment, during which the judges or special guests provide tips and tricks for viewers to use in their own baking.

The production value of Baker's Dozen is top-notch, with beautifully shot footage of the bakers' creations and the competition itself. The music and sound effects add to the excitement and tension of the competition, while also setting a lighthearted and fun tone. The editing is tight and keeps the audience engaged, with just the right amount of suspense and drama.

Overall, Baker's Dozen is a delightful baking competition series that is perfect for anyone who loves to bake or just enjoys watching others do so. The show is family-friendly, with no foul language or inappropriate content, making it a great option for viewers of all ages. With its focus on community and inclusivity, as well as its emphasis on learning and improving baking skills, Baker's Dozen is a welcome addition to the crowded genre of reality baking competition shows.

Baker's Dozen is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on October 7, 2021.
