Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Kid fans of Rosanna Pansino's wildly popular YouTube channel (or baking competition shows in general) will enjoy Baketopia. Kids will enjoy the incredible baking wonderland set, Pansino's outlandish outfits, and the beautiful cake creations the highly skilled contestants bake. Adults may find that the series falls a bit flat. It has all the ingredients of an enjoyable cooking show (popular host, amazing cakes), but its predictable format lacks a hook to keep viewers' interest. Pansino herself has the same over-excitable and friendly persona as her YouTube videos, but since her role is limited as a host, she's not enough to carry a whole show. Grown-ups will appreciate that the contestants and judges are very polite to each other. Besides the product placement throughout the set, there's little that's problematic in this show. Parents can feel good about letting their mini foodies watch Baketopia, but it may be too boring to watch together as a family.
