Bake Squad

There have been a lot of great baking shows to enjoy on Netflix this year and I love how invested Netflix has become in the genre this year! While I’d personally consider every Netflix baking show not named Nailed It! to be underrated, the series I couldn’t stop myself from coming back for seconds of and hope to see get more love in the next year is Bake Squad. 

In this new competition series, four talented bakers with unique skills in cake, confections, sugar and chocolate come together for some friendly competition in a series that emulates good vibes and team spirit.

While the four bakers are technically competing to have their desserts selected by each episode’s guest client’s big event, they lift one another up along the journey never hesitating from lending a hand to help their fellow bakers along the way. Not only was the show full of feel-good moments, but the bakers crafted some truly stunning masterpieces over the course of the season which left us amazed and in awe.

If you love The Great British Baking Show, Bake Squad is the perfect complement to the beloved hit from across the pond. We just hope Netflix recognizes the gem it has in Bake Squad and serves up more seasons in the years ahead!
