Nailed It Season 2 returns with more epic baking fails


Nailed It Season 2 is back with more baking fails. Is this Netflix guilty pleasure on your summer binge watch list?

It’s back. Nailed It Season 2 makes any amateur baker feel better about those baking fails. While many of us dream of that Pinterest perfect cake, those images aren’t reality. It takes years of practice and knowledge to make those beautiful cakes and desserts. But, watching these amateur bakers action somehow makes us all feel better.

Nailed It Season 2 premieres on Netflix June 29. Based on the preview video, this season looks to be filled with lots of bad baking. The idea that one baker uses salt instead of sugar is just mind blowing. Sure, we all have mis-measured an ingredient or two. But have you ever substituted salt for sugar?

Putting aside that huge ingredient mistake, the decorating requirements aren’t easy. One baker said he needed a cake stapler. In all honesty, creating a multi-tiered cake with fondant is hard. It would be like asking an amateur cook to create a Beef Wellington from scratch having never cooked a steak before.

This type of cooking show makes home cooks feel better about themselves. Everyone has had a baking or cooking fail. Even with recipes that you have made hundreds of times can come out wrong. This type of show celebrates those moments of disaster and makes you feel better about them.
