Des Moines Netflix Baking Champ Teams Up With Popular Midwest Store
This story will contain spoilers for all 8 episodes of the Netflix baking competition show Is It Cake? so if you haven't watched the show yet go check it out and come back later.
Last month, a baking competition show premiered on Netflix that has quickly become a mega hit. Is it Cake? is based off of the 2020 trend where bakers would make hyper-realistic cakes.
An eccentric Des Moines baker was one of the show's competitors. Andrew Fuller, the Iowa sweet chef proved himself to be a very worthy artist.
Fuller’s shop Sugar Freakshow will be opening this spring. He is a master of all things spooky, especially when it comes to cakes.

Fuller proved to be a star right out of the gate, but it wasn’t until episode three that we got to see the cake artist in action.
He won back-to-back-to-back episodes with his incredibly realistic creations. Fuller crafted a conch shell, challah bread, and red solo cups which both fooled and impressed the judges.
These creations cemented his spot in the finale where he again came out on top with a realistic suitcase and won $80,000.
“I’m always the weirdo and the oddball who people don’t take seriously,” the baker said through tears. “And I’m just not used to being the one that people consider the best.”
Not only is he the show's first champion, but he's also teaming up with the popular Midwest t-shirt shop.
RAYGUN Shirts announced that they would be partnering up with the Des Moines baker for a shirt design. It's a simple but cute design that fans of the show should appeciate. Fuller's RAYGUN shirt that was inspired by his run on the show reads, "This Shirt Is Not Cake."
They will be soon made available online and in their Des Moines store.
