Join Michael and James as they breakdown (with bubbly, maybe) every episode of The Great Canadian Baking Show. 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!

Sashay You Stay!

I’m obsessed with the GCBS and the RuPaul references are the cherry on top of this podcast!
If you love baking, drag race and yoga you have found your people!
I’m so excited to listen to the season recaps. The best pandemic find❤️🎉.

Who is the trade of the season? ... hmm.. Tanner?

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! ❤️

Makes me Laugh!
