A central New York native is one of the top 10 amateur bakers in the country and she'll show off her skills on The Great American Baking Show this holiday season.

Andrea Marnville of Sherrill made the top 10 on the ABC reality show, something she's known for months. "I received a phone call last spring," says Marnville who had to travel to London in secret to film episodes of the Great American Baking Show. "Last summer I spent time away from my family, filming in secret."

The holiday edition of the Great American Baking Show airs in December and Marnville says she's a roller coaster of emotions. "I'm nervous, excited, scared and have been just so happy my face hurts from smiling."
