People Are Loving Bizarre New Netflix Baking Game Show

Netflix has released a new baking game show and people are loving it. Watch a sliver of it here:

Loading…

Is It Cake? was released last week, and the show is no more complicated than the name suggests: people bake cakes, other people guess whether or not they are in fact cakes.

Now, clearly, if the contestants were just average bakers, the show wouldn't really work. Every cake I have ever baked has looked like a cake, or at least a pretty shoddy cake.

But the bakers on this show are specialists. Competition bakers who specialise in using all manner of weird products and icings to make their cakes look like other things.

The name of the game is to trick celebrity judges with their chameleon cakes, with the winner of each episode taking home a cash prize, and the overall winner crowned as the champion.

It may sound daft - and indeed it is - but the show has made it to the number one spot on Netflix in the US, and currently sits at number 3 in the UK.

Indeed, viewers have been flocking to social media to share just how much they love it (and how confused they are by their own enjoyment):

You shouldn't feel a fool for falling for the cake querying show either, as even brainbox presenter and novelist Richard Osman has been singing its praises.

He tweeted: "#IsItCake on @netflix is such a joyous show. So deceptively cleverly made, I love it."

So don't knock it till you've tried it folks.
