Are young hungry for more cake fails and comedy? Good news! Netflix has Nailed It! season 3 coming our way in May!
Comedian Nicole Byer and chocolatier Jacques Torres will return to host 6 new episodes, in which passionate but bad bakers will try to create edible art for a $10,000 prize. For the holiday specials, Nailed It! offered seasonal treats, Jason Mantzoukas, and the best and worst episodes yet! So what’s in store for season 3? Check out the episode guide, courtesy of Netflix.
The Marvel Episode! — The bakers summon their not-so-super powers to make Marvel-themed cupcakes with detailed cookie toppers and a daunting Black Panther cake. Actress and gaming icon Felicia Day joins the judge’s panel.
Cake-O-Phobia — What’s scarier than a cook who can’t read a recipe? A trio of creepy-crawly bug cookies and a terrifying clown cake that tastes like cotton candy. Baking magician Natalie Sideserf joins the judge’s panel.
Masterpiece or Disasterpiece? — The amateur bakers attempt to imitate the masters with gingerbread self-portraits and a sculpted cake replica of Michelangelo’s “David.” Actress and comedian Betsy Sodaro joins Nicole and Jacques on the judge’s panel.
Prehistoric Bakes — The contestants turn back time—and mangle time management—with inside-out Neanderthal cupcakes and a tropical-flavored T. rex cake. YouTube sensation and baker Rosanna Pansino guest judges.
Oui Can’t Bake! — The pressure’s on to make perfectly puffed éclairs and a layered bust of Napoleon Bonaparte for not one but two esteemed French chefs as esteemed pastry master Hubert Keller joins the judge’s panel.
Ready to Wear, Ready to Eat — Two high-fashion challenges put the bakers’ hopeless skills to the test: fondant-covered doll cakes and an edible headdress heaped with fruit. Humorist and pastry chef Charles Phoenix join Nicole and Jacques on the panel.
Good News: lots of wackiness is sure to be baked into this season! Not So Good News: cake maven and chic thief Silvia Weinstock is not listed as a guest judge!
But GREAT News: it seems Netflix got the memo that their craft-centered spin-off was a bigger misfire than even their ugliest cakestastrophes. Now if we can just get Wes to grow his hair back…
Nailed It! Season 3 launches globally on Netflix May 17.
