Amazing wedding cakes tv show - Page 2

post #16 of 236
The show is a keeper because it is about cakes and I could watch cake shows all day long. I thought it was interesting to see how how the staff interacted, especially those who were partners. They were such perfectionists and even reluctant to allow staff or interns to help out with something more advanced. It was great to see such completely different designs from the different bakeries.

I liked the show...I, too, can watch cake shows all day long. I like seeing the behind the scenes of the bakeries. I actually thought the cadillac cake was cool...I liked the techniques he used & thought it was more whimsical. I actually fell asleep, but it's recorded, so YAY I get to watch it all over again when I get home today.

Oh yeah, I always learn something watching these types of shows. I guess I just have the eye to catch stuff since I'm self taught.

O.k. and one more thing...about the cakegirls...why in the world did they let that stupid man do that to them. I kept saying "what's in your contract?!!!!" Changing 2 DAYS before the wedding...come one... do they not have it spelled out better, or was that for TV???

I have not seen the show but did watch the previews and must say that there seems to be more "drama" in it.

I will watch a few episodes, but think I will prefer Duff b/c there are only tears of happiness.

I saw the show last night and LOVED it!
I agree, the cadillac cake was a little sloppy- for using BC on the front part. When I saw him putting the BC I was like, "Noooo, what are you doing?!?". I would've done it in fondant or gumpaste. But either way, it still came out good. I loved the background and the "Hollywed" sign icon_smile.gif

When the groom came in and chose the cake, I was already getting a bad feeling about it! He was all confident....yeah right! I would've killed him if it were me for changing up the cake the week before the wedding. What the heck!

Then the other cake... she claimed she didn't like to do BC, but OH MY did it come out so smooth! I am so jealous!
Overall, I liked it! I'm also so happy that now people can see what we go through! Cakes don't bake in 5 minutes and pop out of the oven already frosted and ready to go!
Booyah!

Loved the showâ¦I would watch anything about cakes, I always learn something new.

I was thinking what kind of bride sends the groom to pick up the design of the wedding cake!!! Not me for sureâ¦
I loved when the employee from the bakery said the groom was an âidiotââ¦I canât believed the called him that on national TV.
But yes, why did they allow them to change the design so close to the wedding date???â¦
My contract clearly says âno changes after final payment has been madeâ which is ONE MONTH before the wedding date.

I think most of what happened on the show was set up for TV...especially the guy/fiance issue!...from the meeting to the big "fiasco". It was kind of interesting though IMO.

I haven't watched yet, but I set a season pass for it on my TiVo so that it will automatically record all episodes. I LOVE watching cake/cookie shoes. The TiVo in the living room is for DH, but the one in the bedroom is all mine - for cake shows and girl movies.

My TiVo has wishlists based on the keywords cake, bake, cupcake, and sugar. I record all of the shows that have any relationship to cakes and cookies and I watch them at my leisure. I keep those that have techniques that I want to try.

Now I need to find a way to get the "keepers" onto DVD. We bought a laptop computer that can burn DVD's, so I'm sure I can figure a way to hack them onto DVD! The secret is probably just a Google away! icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, it'll show people what we go through and that's a very good thing... Now if they'd just talk about pricing it would help me to charge more!

I saw it last night!!

What did you think about the guy that came in by himself and picked out the cake?? Ladies you all know what happened?!? Right?

Let me know if you want the answer!!! Don't want to spoil it for those that haven't seen it.

Being new I learned a lot from the show.

I would love to have my own shop!!!!

I watched it last night. I learned how to carve the front end of a Cadillac.

I have the feeling that this series is going to be a roller-coaster of emotions. Tune in Sunday, 10 PM Eastern Time.

I really enjoyed it. The one lady getting uptight about the sweet peas, reminded me of someone.........oh yeah, me! icon_biggrin.gif I am about as nice as a gymnastics coach when it comes to cakes, LOL.

I really, really wish that they would put the prices and the amount of time of these cakes on these shows though. I think it would be a real eye opener for the public.
