Is It Cake? Season 1 Recap
The series follows the same pattern of episode throughout season 1 where a group of bakers has to create their cakes resembling daily life objects, and confuse the judges by making them decide between real-life objects and cake that are kept in the cake stand and win a big sum of money through this process. The show might seem repetitive at first but that’s not the case is it cake is as fun as the name suggests, the series follows different tasks in each episode with creative concepts, celebrity guest appearances followed by hilarious jokes.
In the first episode of the series the contestants had to prepare a cake following exact replicas of fast foods, joined by celebrity panels who are as clueless as the audience to find the real cake among the other fast foods that are kept on the cake stand as imposters. In each episode we get to see 3 different judges which makes the show more interesting, this is not it every contestant of the show also reveals their baking journey and what made them invest their time on the show. The real deal of the series is the delicious mouth-watering cakes, the series is not a baking show so it does not focus much on the exact baking process but the appearance of the cake, and how it can confuse the viewers and the audience.
