Language Is a Little Questionable, Lying is Good?

The opening episode starts with some questionable language for kids, especially to be ranked a number one ranking kids show on Netflix. Damn once, and then "oh my God" a lot among other things. Each person talks about their background and how they got into cakes. Some are YouTubers. Others own bakeries etc. One started out making alcohol bottle cakes and mentioned the different drink-related cakes she made. It shows a short montage of them in the first episode. Did one of the characters cheat in the first round? Though it is interesting to see the very creative food made, and kids enjoy that aspect, it could have been a little more child friendly. The final moments of the episode have one of the main characters telling kids after he won that this is why lying and deceiving is the way to go.

PG for sure!

It’s a nice show, I was watching with my 5yr old she and I loved it at the end Andrew and the judges talk about Same-Sex marriage 😯 (Andrew is a same sex marriage) but a good show!
