Is It Cake season 3 will once again ask the titular question and invite a new line-up of bakers to try and lie their way to victory.

Once again, bakers will be creating hyper-realistic cakes resembling everyday objects, and it's up to a panel to decide which of the objects is the odd one out based on sight alone. As we've seen, it's no easy task!

They'll all be back in the kitchen in the hopes of taking home a potential $50,000 grand prize, but each challenge will put them through their paces, with Netflix teasing this installment contains "bigger cakes, higher stakes, and even wilder bakes".

Here's everything we know about Is It Cake season 3...
