Netflix’s ‘Is It Cake?‘ is based on the popular titular online craze that swept the globe in 2020. It challenges a group of exceptionally gifted bakers to construct hyper-realistic cakes in an attempt to mislead the judges. If they do, they have a chance to win a few thousand dollars in each round, as well as a $50,000 grand prize, while also demonstrating their food inventiveness by following their genuine passion.
Sam Cade was one of the most brilliant contenders among the professional cake artists in Season 1. So, let’s find out everything there is to know about her professional history and current position, shall we?

Who is Sam Cade, and Where did She Come from?
Samantha “Sam” Cade, who has always had a sweet tooth, began baking as a hobby while growing up in Dallas, Texas, but it quickly blossomed into a legitimate profession. After all, despite selling her first cake during her sophomore year of high school, Cade’s Cakes was conceived while she was a Business major at UT Austin.
“Everyone was trying to obtain alcohol bottle cakes since you’re on a college campus,” she said in the series. So [I] started manufacturing stuff like tequila bottles or a margarita, and it just kind of spiralled from there.”
Sam worked for the experience at a local Tart Bakery and Momofuku Milk Bar in New York at various times since she realised she’d have to learn how to make a profit to keep up with her “quite pricey pastime.”
That’s exactly why she started Cade’s Cakes in 2012, with word-of-mouth and her own unexpectedly exploding social media presence serving as the driving forces behind her efforts. Sam later ended up on the Netflix original, where her designs demonstrated that she is one of the finest in her business, even though she couldn’t always trick the judges.
What Happened to Sam Cade And Where Is She?
Sam Cade, now 28 years old, owns and operates Cade’s Cakes in Dallas, where she offers customised, one-of-a-kind hyper-realistic cakes from her hometown. The best aspect, at least for us, is that she doesn’t really stick to one genre; whether it’s a book cake, food platters, drinks, shoes, or regular cakes, she does it all, including cookies, pies, and brownies (and documents the same on her Instagram).
Sam also sells a few ordinary cakes and pies, as well as “Cake Guts” jars (which are exactly what they sound like) that can be shipped not only throughout the state, but also across the country.
We should explain that Sam had moved to New York for a few months to attend pastry school, where her incredibly realistic creations were admired and her artistic abilities polished.
Furthermore, because New York City is rich in opportunities, she worked hard to earn them, as proven by the fact that her sweet delicacies were featured at fashion shows, sporting events, and even ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Sam’s career appears to be just getting started, and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
