Baking It is a reality TV competition series that tests the skills of talented bakers during the holiday season. Eight teams of two bakers must compete against each other, creating a series of decadent desserts that coincide with a specific theme.
Their tasty treats are critiqued by a panel. Hosts Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg — with the latter being replaced by creator Amy Poehler in the second season — provide hilarious commentary along the way.
While it’s customary for most cooking shows to be filmed at a studio, some shows take a different approach — think Holiday Baking Championship, which was filmed at a luxury resort. So, where is Baking It filmed?
‘Baking It’ was filmed at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
According to TheCinemaholic, the mystery around NBC’s Baking It filming location has been revealed. The outlet shares that the baking competition series was filmed in Los Angeles at Universal Studios.
