If one more person asks me.... - Page 3

post #31 of 72
I love watching Cake Boss, but not Kitchen Boss. He's boring on his own and needs the drama of his employees/family to make himself interesting. It's totally obvious that mush of it is staged though, which sucks. Like when the two guys dropped the Sweet 16 birthday cake down the stairs! Totally staged!

Absolutely!!! My hubby and I are never in the bathroom at the same time and I dont' know any other married couple who does that with both of them still alive! icon_lol.gif I'd rather have one sink and LOTS of bathroom counter space!!!

I can sit thru Cake Boss sometimes, but only if there is nothing else on TV. If he produced cutting edge cakes besides cakes that are so tacky and over the top (or, as one Poster said - a sheet cake with crispy treats) then I'd deal with the hyped drama and screaming. But 1/2 the time I want to just tell him, "Hey Buddy, 1982 called and they want their cake back".

The show I get asked about the most is DC Cupcakes... I want to poke my eyes out with a stick. Good for them that they get lines around the block for their cupcakes, but OMG those women are so obnoxious! And I would never let my complete moron bumbling mother in the kitchen to touch anything, let alone put her in front of national TV for the world to ridicule and hate. I mean, is that supposed to be cute? Because it's NOT. It totally rubs me the wrong way.

I think their big displays are ugly and look like total crap.

I'm with you! Honestly, I don't want to watch my DH brushing and flossing, nor do I want him watching me check for chin hairs icon_biggrin.gif!

I must confess, we have separate bathrooms...his and hers...but we don't NEED them, we just love them and if pressed, could live without them. We knew families with 5, 6, 7 kids who grew up in houses with one bathroom.

I used to like Cake Boss when it first aired. I was new to cake decorating and appreciated the techniques they shared with the viewers. BUT, like every other reality show out there, it shifted more towards the personalities, and scripted drama.

I catch the show once in awhile if there's nothing else to watch. My hubby also does a great impersonation of Buddy- "Whada we gonnna dooo?!?!?!" They do some nice work, but it seems that they are trying to push the envelope by doing over the top cakes. I thought it was hilarious when he tried to say that his wife always wanted a life sized cake of herself . I don't know about you, but I don't know anyone with that big of an ego. I remember seeing a life sized bride cake that was listed as one of the worst wedding cakes on a blog. The cake was well done, just considered obnoxious and in poor taste.

He seems to be trying to exploit his popularity as much as he can before someone new comes along. Look at how far Rachel Ray took her career. He's got 2 shows now and there's always the chance of another contestant based show. He's got books, tours and a factory to open soon. Reality TV does seem to open many doors, if you can stay popular.

It's interesting to watch but I'm not that big of a fan. I'm curious to see if he overextends himself and how he will handle it all.

In my People magazine a couple weeks ago, they had DC cupcakes in there and they charge $50+ for 1 DOZEN CUPCAKES! Hello, that's a lot of $. They really do need to put prices of cakes and things on these shows so people would realize what a great deal they are getting from those of you that aren't highly publicized and famous. icon_smile.gif

I LOVE Cake Boss. Watch it all the time. Sometimes I like DC cupcakes but other times they really annoy the crap out of me. The blond sister seems kind of air headed.

Judging by the 3.5 hour wait to get into Carlo's Bakery last weekend, the publicity is working. icon_smile.gif My friends met Madeline, she took a picture with them and thanked everyone for waiting and coming to the bakery. They definitely back it up, the pastries and cupcakes were delicious.

I do like the show Cake Boss, although I agree that the fake drama they create is silly. I enjoy Kitchen Boss too, I've printed out a bunch of recipes I can't wait to try.

Does anyone know what happened to the Cake Girls? Did they ever rebuild after the fire?

mine is cupcake wars.....we do cakes but mostly specialize in gourmet high end cupcakes, so people come in and see our cupcakes and automatically think we have to watch it all the time, i think i have seen one episode, my reasoning is simple, i work ALL the time, if not at the shop then at home taking care of my family, i dont have time to watch tv.

TV is affecting all kinds of folks! My hubby's sister is a retired detective with the sheriff's dept and told us about an incident of kids taking baseball bats to mailboxes. One mailbox owner asked if she was going to test for DNA!!! icon_eek.gif I didn't know baseball bats HAD dna!!! icon_lol.gif

I worked with a guy who did photography on the side and I was always teasing him about special camera tricks and angles by saying, "Sure you can! They do it on CSI all the time!" icon_lol.gif

My neighbor had a theft happen to her and somehow they got the guys phone number and were putting a trace on the phone to find out who he was, etc. Told her it would take 6 weeks to get the info. I laughed and was teasing her when I said, "Nah! It doesn't take that long! They get that info in just seconds on Law and Order!" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

And the one that affects me personally is William Shatner implying to people they can talk a hotel down to twenty bucks for a hotel room becuase for some reason they think selling a room that puts me in the red is better than not selling the room at all. (Sound familiar, cake makers?) icon_rolleyes.gif I REALLY HATE IT when people walk in and try to priceline me!!

[quote="carmijok"]The one show I detest... and I detest it with all my heart.. is DC Cupcakes. I'm so happy they can attach cupcakes to some stupid form --that takes real talent--but seriously....the fake drama makes me sick! And that guy with all the hair...and he's back there with the food and not pulling it back! Yick! And a grown woman being called 'Mommy'...by EVERYONE?

Just watched my first episode of DC cupcakes. Couldn't stand it. Also, I was thinking the same thing about the head baker. Both shows seem so fake.
