Netflix will never tire of putting out new cooking and baking contest shows, and who can blame them? They are relatively cheap to produce and people love to watch other people make food. And their latest show combines a baking contest with “is it a cake?” memes and trends that everyone is talking about.
If you don’t remember the meme, it was in the early months of the pandemic and the videos and highlights feature everyday objects that look pretty ordinary. That is until someone grabs a knife for them and you realize it’s not really a stapler, it’s cake! It may seem a bit silly now, but it went viral on social media at the time. And come on, who doesn’t love cake?!
Is the cake? will be hosted by SNL Actor Mikey Day and will have mostly comedians as judges. The show would have been more interesting if they let the bakers fool the real pastry chefs, but Netflix didn’t ask me for advice.
The show is scheduled to hit Netflix on Friday, March 18, 2022 and will be eight episodes long.
What cake is it? around?
The premise of the program is quite simple. A baker has to make a cake that looks like an everyday item. Items range from purses to sneakers, sewing machines to bowling balls.
After completing their creation, the cakes will be placed next to the item they represent, then a panel of comedians and celebrities must guess whether the object is a cake or not.
If the judges can’t guess that their cake is actually a cake, the baker wins $5,000. Then the bakers had to test their guesses. Can they figure out which is the cake and which is not? If they guess correctly, they win an extra $10,000.
When it’s over, the three best bakers will be chosen and they’ll compete for the grand prize of $50,000.
