I have spoken to Kerry personally several times on the phone. The first time she suggested I call her concerning a question I had asked her in an e-mail. She was warm and just full of helpful tips. We talked for quite a long time. Since then, she has been very helpful whenever I have had a question. I so enjoy watching her on the Challenges because on the show she seems so austere, but truly she is a gem!

I'd LOVE to see Edna on a challenge! She is charming and witty, too. She'd be an instant star getting her own show like Duff or Rachael Ray did!

TOTALLY agree! There are some people on this site that are so talented it blows my mind. I think some of them are better than the big names I have seen on there-Buddy, or that terrible woman who made the soccer player/blow up doll. Some decorators on this site could shoot to stardom if they were given coverage!



I totally agree! I make my husband watch these challanges all the time. He sits there and complains that I could do better. He is wrong of course, but I have no doubt that some of the decorators here at CC could knock their socks off! I think that you have to make maga bucks on your cakes and/or sell one to a celebrity to get on food network.

Yes, but even if Buddy Valestro makes big bucks, I haven't liked any of the cakes I've seen him make in a challenge. Pardon me forgetting her name, but the owers of Let Them Eat Cake are awesome!!

Sorry, just had to voice my opinion.


Amen, she gets on my nerves. Her work is amazing I agree, but why does she have to be rude. She had to start somewhere just like the rest of us.

listen the truth about food network challange is that is a tv show. they do not care about how people come off it is about making good tv. kerry in real life is a sweet heart who is a pioneer in our industry for stressing pionts on how it is an art aND WE DESERVE TO GET PAID. if people do not see what goes into what we do to them it is sugar butter and water. they make her come off that way.the same way they make me come off . the truth of it is i am a very good cake decorator mostly cause i have done alot of cakes. when you go to challange all the rules change . first off the 10 grand prize money is usally gone in the cost of buying tools making boards or contraption or try renting a van and drive from nj to denver it barley covers your cost trust me. second they are praying for you to drop a cake or fight with the judges or have some mishaps. alls i am saying sometimes i read these blogs and i say people dont even know me and they think i am a jerk . also remember they keep calling me back i never call them. you want to try then talk to me call food network in ny. or high noon productions in denver and come on the show . talk is cheap. also remember that you have two cammera guys up your butt in your face all day with the hot lights on you the air is drier in denver so your fondant cracks you wake up 4 am and start at 9 then finish about 10 pm it is alot harder then it looks . if i was in my bakery i can also calmly do my best work so the piont of this is to let you know the truth.

yes i just am tired of people thinking that i am a a******e or untalented. the truth is i never ever talk bad about other cake artist and i also never turn my back on people either there has been many times when i go out of my way to help people in the decorating community. also i am a baker so i really understand the science of it. no hard fellings about past bad blogs about me. but if you want to ask a question just ask it. i taught a class sunday you should ask those people about if i am an a*****e or un talented i had so much fun doing what i love to do and to see there reactions was just great.
