WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – One Williamsburg baker will be featured on an upcoming Thanksgiving-themed show that will air on the Discovery Family Channel on Saturday.

Tawanda attaches wood-designed fondant to sides of bottom cake layer.

Hammond and her cousin Lise will have a bake-off against another set of cousins from Hydesville, Maryland, as they create a holiday Thanksgiving cake in just four hours. Buddy, along with head baker Joe, and Marissa then judge both creations and pick a winner, according to the Discovery Family Channel.

The show will air at 9 p.m. on Saturday.
