The show is a twist on traditional cooking shows, by bringing together home bakers who make up for their lack of skill with their enthusiastic attitudes. Comedian Nicole Byer and renowned pastry chef Jacques Torres host and judge the chaos in the kitchen, from half-baked doll cakes to delightfully creepy edible clowns. The baker who makes the best (or least terrible) recreation can take home a $10,000 prize.
On the upcoming six-episode season, viewers will be treated to challenges like the Marvel showdown, where bakers must make Marvel-themed cupcakes and a daunting “Black Panther” cake. Actress and gaming icon Felicia Day joins the judge’s panel. Other episodes include “Cake-o-Phobia,” featuring bug cookies and a clown cake; a cake replica of Michelangelo’s “David”; Neanderthal cupcakes and a T. rex cake
