Based on the online trend that took over the world about two years ago, Netflix’s ‘Is It Cake?’ invites a few incredibly talented bakers to create delectable confections, only to make them look like anything but cake. In other words, it is a baking competition wherein professional cake artists are required to make hyper-realistic illusions from scratch for a chance to win thousands in each round, plus a $50,000 grand prize. So now that the series is available to binge (which we did — no regrets), let’s take a look at what some of its entertaining cast members are up to today, shall we?
