Inspired by a popular meme in which people document their wildly unsuccessful attempts to follow Pinterest recipes, Nailed It defies convention by shining a big, bright spotlight on imperfection.
The show challenges amateur bakers to create elaborate cakes, desserts, and more to highlight just how difficult Pinterest recipes really are.
In each episode, the contestant who most closely replicates professional results – and this is no easy feat – wins $10,000.
Sugar Rush is a baking competition where time is of the essence as several teams rush to bake delicious sweets.
Basically, it’s Nailed It with people who can actually ‘nail’ complex cake challenges in record time. The show, which is hosted by Hunter March, follows contestants as they battle it out to make the best cupcakes, confections and cakes.
Judges Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo evaluate the sweets and ultimately decide who goes home with the $10,000 prize that’s up for grabs.
Great British Bake Off
Over the course of 10 hour-long episodes, the series follows the trials and tribulations of the competitors, young and old, from every background and every corner of Britain, as they attempt to prove their baking prowess.
Each week the bakers tackle a different baking skill, which become progressively more difficult as the competition unfolds. Contestants are eliminated in each round by star judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood as they decide whose cooking places them over the top.
