    "Nailed It" Had A Trump Cake Round And, As You Can Imagine, It Didn't Go Well

    This post contains spoilers and cakes you probably won't want to eat.

    By now you may have heard of Nailed It, a new Netflix show where bakers who aren't exactly great at baking try to recreate ridiculous cakes in a timed competition.

    Well, in the finale of the six-episode season, the bakers had to make a replica of Donald Trump’s face out of cake.

    As you can imagine, the fact that I have done a post on this for you suggests that the bakers didn't necessarily produce cakes that looked like this.

    Before the challenge, presenter Nicole Byer and head judge Jacques Torres gave them some tips on how to re-create the president's face.

    You might be thinking that the contestants would bake badly on purpose, because of their opinion of Trump – but you would be mistaken. There was a $10,000 prize for the best version of him.

    One of the contestants, Anabell, also said that she had voted for Trump.

    (And yes, I know there’s a weird irony in the fact that the winner is the person who bakes the best version on a show where the entertainment lies in the terrible baking. In fact, contestants are selected specifically because of their poor baking skills. But moving on...)

    The possibility of winning $10,000 didn’t stop the contestants airing their views on the president.

    And to be honest, judging by their abilities, I don't think the prize made a difference anyway.

    At the end of the episode we saw the contestants reveal their Trump attempts. Here was Kyle’s.

    You might be thinking: "Oh wait, that's not bad."

    That's because I misled you. Here is his actual attempt:

    Yep.

    "It's leaning to the left. Should it be leaning to the right?" said guest judge Jay Chandrasekhar.

    Then we saw Anabell's attempt at Trump.

    You can tell where I'm going with this one. The third one was *not necessarily* an improvement on the second.

    Here is Kymberli's attempt at Trump.

    As you can imagine, the judges loved this one.

    Uh-huh.

    Actually crying from laughing at the @netflix show Nailed It. They were supposed to make Trump cakes and this is what one contestant made. 😂 https://t.co/oeonO2PNQr

    And when Kymberli was asked more about it, she defended her attempt: "I put him in a pretty good suit though."

    Oh by the way, good luck sleeping tonight.
