Every episode the duo will break down the bakes from the Signature, Technical, and Showstopper challenges. Sometimes it's funny; sometimes it's serious, but the one thing you can count on is that we'll never glaze over the bakes!

Baking show fans unite!

I love this pod - it feels like discussing a favourite show with great friends, and for someone who holds hopes of one day being on GCBS, there is so much helpful information as they draw back the curtain on the ins and outs of the process. Can’t wait for the next season! ❤️
