Larsen and her husband Geoff co-own the shop at Main Street near Greenfield Road.

The competition puts 10 bakers in a kitchen to come up with holiday goodies for glory and more important, a $50,000 grand prize. A contestant will be eliminated each week.

The season’s first challenge will be a nutty chocolate dessert and pies.
