When their family bakery may have to close its doors right before Christmas, rival sisters Kim and Gina must team up to win a national baking competition, save the family business, and perhaps even discover a bigger prize than they hoped.


This is another movie where the main problem is the bank is ready to foreclose, just before Christmas. In this one, the current owners of the debt are justifiably clueless because their father who just passed away didn't tell them or anyone. So now they're in a mad dash to save the family bakery and their mom's house. Lucky for them there's a local baking competition with a grand prize that will just cover their debt. 

This is one of those movies that is only a Christmas movie because of the arbitrary deadline. The baking competition doesn't even emphasize holiday treats for crying out loud. There is really no reason this couldn't have been set in like March. It was an enjoyable movie for what it was, but it was not a Christmas movie.
