Another Season of Extreme Cake Makers for C4


Channel 4 has ordered a second 30×30-minute season of the hit daytime series Extreme Cake Makers from Boomerang.

Extreme Cake Makers spotlights the successes and failures of a group of people who create elaborate cakes. The show is commissioned by David Sayer for Channel 4, with Sam Grace serving as executive producer. The last season featured such creations as a life-size Shetland pony, a four-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty and a ballgown with edible peacock feathers.

Matt Pritchard, the managing director at Boomerang, remarked: “After a successful first [season] of Extreme Cake Makers, we are really pleased to be given the opportunity to build this returnable daytime brand from our Cardiff production base. We’re looking forward to slicing further into the eccentric world of elaborate cake making.”

Sayer, the head of daytime at Channel 4, added: “Viewers proved to have a great appetite for this winning recipe of spectacular and delicious cakes and so we are delighted to commission a further [season] as part of daytime’s continuing drive to increase its output from the nations and regions.”
