The best of the best

1. got over it (2018)

While some baking shows can make you feel inadequate in the kitchen, this real baking competition does exactly the opposite. Hobbyist bakers do their best to replicate complicated confectionery masterpieces and, well, it usually doesn’t work out quite as planned. Yes, the series is filled with a lot of hilarious baking missteps, but that’s what makes it so enjoyable (not to mention completely relatable).

two. Sugar rush (2018)

Now this is where some real baking skills come into play. Professional bakers made up of teams of two work together to beat their fellow competitors in three separate rounds of sugary concoctions. The first round centers around the cupcakes; the second round features candy; and the third and final round is the dessert that provides the biggest sugar rush of all: cake. The winning team receives $10,000. The stakes are high (and so are calories!). Sure, chances are you can’t recreate these delights in your kitchen, but there’s nothing wrong with sitting back and admiring a professional’s handiwork. You’ll just wish you could reach for your TV and try out the creations for yourself.

3. it’s cake (2022)

One would think that it would be easy to tell if an inanimate object was really an object or if it was made of cake; however, this series somehow proves this theory wrong. The celebrity judges go to great lengths to discern what is cake and what isn’t, leading to some pretty hilarious (and frankly shocking) revelations. It just goes to show that sometimes a piece of cake isn’t always a piece of cake to spot.

Four. The curious creations of Christine McConnell (2018)

Centered on baker and artist Christine McConnell, the series shows her making a variety of dessert concoctions that typically have a unique, spooky twist. From gingerbread haunted houses to wolf claw doughnuts, some of these recipes are so creative they’re scary.

5. The Great British Baking Show (2010)

It would be criminal not to include one of the best and most loved baking shows of all time. Heck, it even has the word “cool” in the title. You may be surprised at how involved you become with each baking competitor. It’s the kind of wholesome fun that everyone in the family can enjoy. However, it is important to note that only Season 8 and later are available on the streaming platform. However, that still leaves you with plenty of baking content to keep you entertained for days and weeks to come. Add a Great American Baking Show the spin-off is officially on the way!
