‘The Great British Baking Show’

The Great British Baking Show is one of the most popular baking shows around the world.

‘Nailed It’

If you want to feel better about your baking skills or love a good Pinterest fail, Nailed It is the Netflix baking show for you. The hilarious competition-style series showcases failure-prone home bakers competing for a $10,000 price. Each episode follows a group of three bakers as they set out to create three delicious and adorable edible treats. Spoiler Alert: None of them actually “nail it” when it comes to their baking skills.

‘Sugar Rush’

One of the most challenging things about baking is time. Netflix’s original series, Sugar Rush puts bakers to the test with four teams of bakers racing against time to make impressive cakes and other sweets. Pastry chefs Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo — along with guest judges — critique the teams’ creations and hand out a $10,000 prize to the winners.

‘Zumbo’s Just Desserts’

For bakers inspired by Willy Wonka and his magical chocolate factory, Zumbo’s Just Desserts is a top pick for you. In this Netflix original series, dessert aficionado, Adriano Zumbo searches for the next Willy Wonka-like baker. The show features amateur bakers and a cash prize of $100,000. Think of all the cupcakes you could buy with that money!
