Netflix’s TV baking show, Is It Cake? is back for a second season, and it looks like it’s as absolutely bonkers as it was the first time.

Yup, remember that meme where people would cut into stuff, and it would actually be cake? This show is basically that but on heat, and if you’ve seen the first instalment (which premiered in March 2022) you’ll know what we mean.

The second season is named Is It Cake Too? and takes on the same format as season one.

It’s hosted by Saturday Night Live star, Mikey Day, and challenges contestants to make cakes so hyper-realistic that people can’t tell whether they’re real or edible.

Landing on Netflix today (Friday, June 30th), the show consists of eight episodes that all drop in one go.

Like season one, celebrity guest judges will be making appearances every episode, and this time they include:

  • Ally Love
  • Anna Camp
  • Blake Anderson
  • Brandon Kyle Goodman
  • Charli D’amelio
  • Chiney Ogwumike
  • Chloe Fineman
  • Chris Redd
  • Chris Witaske
  • Chrishell Stause
  • Cristela Alonzo
  • Dixie D’amelio
  • Flula Borg
  • Heidi D’amelio
  • Jade Catta-Preta
  • Jeff Dye
  • Joel Kim Booster
  • Joel Mchale
  • Kate Flannery
  • Kirby Howell-Baptiste
  • Maz Jobrani
  • Melissa Villasenor
  • Nico Santos
  • Taylor Tomlinson

The big change this year is that there’s a heftier cash prize, too.

Whilst season one offered contestants $50,000 (£39,321), they’ve now doubled the prize fund to $100,000 (£78,642).

There’s no denying the whole thing is pure, unadulterated silliness, but you actually get to witness some really incredible baking, too.

Reacting to the first series, one person wrote: “Television has peaked. #IsItCake is a masterpiece. A terrible, so bad it‘s good again, masterpiece.”

While another concurred: “Is it cake on Netflix is the worst show I’ve ever seen I plan on watching every single second”.

“Just discovered ‘Is it Cake?’ on Netflix. What fresh, potentially addictive nonsense is this?!,” wrote a third. 

Will it be getting the same feedback this time round? The jury is still out…
