Celebrities Take Center Stage on New Cake Competition Cakealikes
All-new series featuring cakes that look like celebrities will be available to stream exclusively on Discovery+ beginning on Monday, Jan. 4!
It’s lights, camera, and action on Monday, January 4 on the new discovery+ comedic cake competition Cakealikes. This ultimate cake-off challenges three teams of cake artists to create the most epic realistic, life-sized cake replicas of famous celebrities. 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 winning team a prize totaling $10,000 and special one-of-a-kind celebrity souvenir.
To kick-off the competition, each team must recreate an iconic look of the queen of pop, Lady Gaga, nailing 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 one of her most memorable red-carpet appearances.
Throughout the season the cake artists must work as they dress the fabulous RuPaul from head to toe and sculpt edible muscles and chiseled abs out of buttercream while recreating Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Plus, the cake artists face Public Enemy #1 Flava Flav and the Brady Bunch with Maureen McCormick and Christopher Knight as the featured guest judges. These celebrity cakealikes are so realistic and life-like, you’ll hardly want to take a bite!
Cakealikes premieres Monday, January 4 exclusively on Discovery+.
