Oh my gosh, so my students introduce me to many things. Some things I do not want kids this age to know about. Some things are funny. Some are just silly and definitely kid humor. But today…today they introduced me to IS IT CAKE?
This is a series on Netflix where bakers have to make a cake that looks like food. I mean, this is right up my alley. I love food. And I love cake. Cake that looks like food is just the frosting on top! Pun intended. Today it was tacos, a croissant sandwich, and a cheeseburger with all the fixings. These artists are amazing! This show is a far cry from the show we were watching earlier this year–Nailed It–where the people are NOT bakers and do NOT know how to make fancy cakes. And the results are usually hilarious. But this show…wow!
I’m super impressed with how artistry comes in all forms. Other people have to guess which of the “foods” at the end is the cake, and let me tell you, it’s not easy. If the judges do not guess the cake, the baker wins $5000! I’m not sure what cake made to look like tacos would actually taste like (I mean, your brain sees tacos but tastes cake? I see a culinary paradox here… taco-flavored cake? Cake flavored tacos? Taco cake? Cake tacos?)
Thanks, kids. I can’t wait to watch more of this show!
