Food Network Birthday Cake Challenge - Page 2

I thought the spinning top cake was the most creative because it defied gravity and was interactive.

I totally agreed with the winner ... she was my favorite from the start. My next favorite was Ryan's, then the chocolate town. I thought the Carousel was ugly and poorly executed ... and not a good example at all of the rest of this person's work. The clown and the chocolate town were amazingly beautiful, but we kept wondering where the actual *cake* was! And how do you begin to eat something like that? Still, just stunning work.

It was fun watching everyone's techniques and learning a little bit of this & that. Of course, I love the wedding cake challenges sooo much better!

[quote="mvucic"]I agree with the comment made about the carousel. I couldn't believe how unstable it was!!! quote]

I think we all agree that the carousel was out of the league. . .
I saw this special some time last year, but I saw it for a little while again last night. . . I remembered that when I saw it last year, the Cake Diva mentioned that she did know she had to move the cake to the table. . . Duhhhhh! How can someone who makes cakes to be delivered, make a cake that can't be moved a whole 3 feet? Also, I've seen plently of contest on the Food Network & they ALWAYS have to move their showpiece. Please!!!!! I'm sure they get contest rules when they sign up detailing EVERYTHING, including having to move the cake. . .Besides, she was so dramatic and even seemed to give the camera attitude when she was moving the cake, she was truly lucky that the cake didn't fall out of her hands.

I just wanted to add that I think they mentioned that one of their judging criteria was how it would be transported? Did I imagine that?! Anyways, clearly the carousel, blown/sculpted sugar and chocolate city scape would not make it out of the decorator's kitchen. Maybe that was one of the reasons that some finished in those positions?

alengirl, I laughed when I heard her comment about not knowing it had to be moved to the presentation table too! I'm sure they gave out rules and regulations before the competition began !

Can't wait for the next challenge icon_smile.gif

I know, I was like, "she did not just say that, did she?" icon_lol.gif
Anyway, if she competes again, hopefully she'll remember that
part of the contest requires her to move the show piece to the judging table. . . icon_rolleyes.gif

did anyone catch the nifty tools they were smoothing cakes with?
I saw the metal one with the handle that is normally used for drywall. but two different people on there were smoothing with something else. almost looked like a rectangular piece of plastic with no handle. Did anyone happen to notice what that was?
