This ultimate cake-off challenges three teams of cake artists to create the most epic realistic, life-sized cake replicas of famed celebrities.
New York, NY – December 8, 2020 – It’s lights, camera, and action on Monday, January 4th on the new discovery+ comedic cake competition series Cakealikes. This ultimate cake-off challenges three teams of cake artists to create the most epic realistic, life-sized cake replicas of famed celebrities. Using cake and buttercream for every small detail leads to some disastrous and hilarious cake fails, because with sugar and frosting it’s a fine line between beauty and botched.
Tregaye Fraser along with renowned expert cake sculptor Natalie Sideserf, comedic food commentator Kalen Allen, and a rotating panel of guest judges determine which Cakealike makes the A-list, earning the winner a prize totaling $10,000 and special one-of-a-kind celebrity souvenir. These incredible creations aren’t just look-a-likes, they’re Cakealikes!
It’s celebrities as you’ve never seen before throughout the six-episode competition as their most famous moments are immortalized in cake. To kick-off the competition, each team must recreate an iconic look of the queen of pop, Lady Gaga. They must nail the details of her most showstopping moments, including her origami dress, the trailblazing meat dress, and a concert outfit requiring countless individual sequins to be piped out of royal icing.
In another episode, the artists must tackle an iconic image of Kim Kardashian, from her tight pink spandex minidress, to one of her classic pregnancy looks, and to one of her most memorable red-carpet appearances. But fighting gravity to sculpt Kim’s famed hourglass figure with cake will prove very difficult and only one cakealike will land on the top tier.
