A new chapter in  Netflix’s popular baking series Nailed It! has arrived. In The Big Nailed It! Baking Challenge, ten bakers are tested as they learn new skills to expand their baking prowess and try to pull off incredible feats in the kitchen. This spinoff series is a little twist on the regular concept as the bakers are given the tools to enhance their abilities, all while competing for an awesome cash prize.

Spoilers ahead for the end of The Big Nailed It! Baking Challenge

Nicole Byer returns to host and judge this new show, which is an absolute blast from start to finish. Each episode begins with a “Baking 101” segment where coaches teach the bakers something new, whether it’s how to level a cake or tips for working with fondant. It’s a chance for these home cooks to expand their knowledge and really put themselves to the test.

But who ultimately comes out on top?

Who wins The Big Nailed It! Baking Challenge?

In the grand finale of the first season of The Big Nailed It! Baking Challenge, the competition came down to just two baking finalists: Ignoisco Miles and Georgina Chiou.

For their final test, Ignoisco and Georgina were given 12 hours to put all their newly-learned knowledge to the test and create a cake of their own design, in addition to two separate treats. They also got to work with one assistant, with previous contestants Kevin and Richard returning to help them.

Ultimately, Ignoisco was crowned the winner after the judges—which included Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres alongside several renowned pastry chefs and guest judge Jack McBrayer—deliberated. Ignoisco won a check for $100,000.
