The Great British Bake Off might be must-watch TV, but all those perfect cakes and near-professional bakers are enough to make anyone feel rather meh about their own culinary prowess.
Cue new Netflix show Nailed It. This US show is for amateur bakers who literally are total amateurs – and their collapsed cakes and horrifying creations are proving a huge hit.
The premise sees three bakers tasked with recreating beautiful baked goods to compete for a $10,000 prize. And the results are… hilarious:
In a world of perfect food pasted all over social media and TV, it’s refreshing to see such underachievement in the kitchen celebrated.
Twitter can’t get enough of it:

I’ve been laughing like an idiot at this all day. It’s a show on Netflix called nailed it and they take people who can’t bake and make them recreate extravagant cakes. This is the result ? pic.twitter.com/cE9S64Pwy3

If you’re not watching Nailed It on Netflix, stop whatever you’re doing and put it on RIGHT NOW. Amateur bakers try to recreate amazing cakes and are terrible at it. #nailedit pic.twitter.com/Bd2Hlz2noe
