YES! And does it seem odd to anyone else that they had enough cake, unfrozen (since the frozen cake was an issue in another episode!) to completely redo that huge (or "uge") cake?!

Buddy was acting as if he cake didn't come out right he would somehow end up being "WHACKED" !!!

Do not get me wrong ... Buddy and his staff are incredibly talented ... I love a close knit family ... But stop the bad acting and just stick to making wonderful, gorgeous cakes !!! icon_sad.gif



I agree 1000%! That "Social Club" cake storyline was right out of The Godfather.
I'm sure I'll get flamed for this but . . . I liked Buddy better when he was just on the Cake Challenges. There's too much acting and the acting isn't good on this show. There's always some drama that seems unbelievable to me. Duff has drama sometimes too but it doesn't seem as "staged" as Buddy's. Maybe he'll get better next season but right now the Drama Llama is making me want to tune out more often than I tune in.

Amen to that !!! Lol I was like huh ? icon_rolleyes.gif

Wow. A lot of backseat drivers on here, dont ya think?

I love buddy. It's so much better than Ace of Cakes, which is completely commercialized now. I don't think their cakes are even that great anymore. I do not think that anything is staged. I think that Buddy really does handle his staff that way, and he gets things done, so he must be doing something right. I also think that the sweet 16 cake fell because of the tap & tilt that happened on the stairway. It hit pretty hard, in an angle. It makes sense that it fell. AND, there are lots of reasons why they may not have wanted to use an elevator. Maybe it was full with one of their other 30 + cakes. Maybe it is further from the delivery van and they wanted the quickest route. Whatever. I don't think they are faking anything.

The first thing I noticed when the cake fell was there was no center dowel in the cake! I do love the show and Buddy and his staff can really decorate some beautiful cakes! Buddy makes the most beautiful roses I've ever seen!

I do not speak French, but I'm guessing the "fon-DAWNT" pronunciation is French.
As for "YOUS" being used as plural for "you"----yep, it's a NY-NJ area thing. I live here and it cracks me up, too. I have friend who does it unknowingly. Guess they missed the lesson on pluralization in school.

I'm sorry if I seem mean-spirited. I do want to say that I think Buddy is a very nice, big-hearted person, I love his family, and his business is fantastic! The cakes are really impressive and I wish them much continued success! However, I am convinced that much of the drama is staged and would enjoy the show more without it.

The one from New York was previously in partnersip with a more conservative woman and it was called The Cake Altier now she has a new staff and is called Cake Alchemy icon_biggrin.gif

This guy has been on Food Network Challenges and obviously knows his way around a kitchen ... thumbsdown.gif



Even my husband who has never made a cake himself, just watched me here and there, bits and peices...said the exact same thing. The first thing out of his mouth was, "come on, you mean to tell me that cake would just fall off like that. Why wouldn't they have dowel in it!" Even to his untrained eye he thought it was fake. We still LOVE the show, but the recent shows have made us think maybe it's not all it seems to be. I still love watching, but now i take everything that happens with a grain of salt. Oh well, that's tv for ya.

Thanks! I can move past it now!! I always say "you guys" even if I'm not addressing guys, so I'm sure that's equally annoying, and more syllables than "you's!" Heck, maybe I'll start saying it!!

I do like that he tries to make everything edible. There was one episode that he even said that he tries to really make everything in his cakes, cake. He said the SOME PEOPLE tend to use a lot of styrofoam/inedible elements in constructing their cakes (hmmmm - wonder who he's talking about?!!?! icon_lol.gif ) So that part I do like!!

And I didn't get the big deal about the frozen cakes either - what's it take like 10 mins for those puppies to thaw enough to carve? I've never had to let any frozen cake sit out for HOURS before I could carve it......

.....just saying icon_biggrin.gif

Talking about the roulet table, how about the episode where the bridezilla squeazed buttercream all over her cake a day before her wedding. Horrible acting! That show lost kudos in my book for that. When I saw that, I couldn't believe they were trying to pass that off as real. I love the show because of how the cakes come out, other than that, I don't think I would watch it.
