This is a list of the bakers that were killed by the serial killer, Piella Bakewell, in the Wallace and Gromit short, A Matter of Loaf and Death.

Why They Were Murdered[edit | edit source]

Piella Bakewell was the spokesmodel for the Bake-O-Lite Bread Company, but after Piella gained too much weight from eating too many pastries, and wasn't light enough to ride the Bake-O-Lite hot air balloon, the company dropped her as their spokesmodel.

Feeling it was the fault of the bakers who made the pastries she ate rather than her own, Piella decided to get revenge by killing a "baker's dozen" of bakers (a "baker's dozen" is thirteen).

She gained the trust of the thirteen bakers by pretending to fall in love with them, and then killed them when they least expected it---not that they actually expected Piella to murder them.
