I don't believe their top priority is going to be making anyone else's life easier. icon_rolleyes.gif

icon_lol.gif You're right. I was thinking more along the lines of just putting the $$ for informational purposes sort of like other shows (storage wars and that pawn show are what come to mind now) where they display how much the people sold their stuff for.

Costumeczar....glad I could brighten your day.

QTCakes1....I got a million of them, remember I'm from the South.

I love storage wars and I think it's great that they put a price on the stuff they sell. I don't see it happening for the cake show though. I hardly watch anymore but are they still really popular?

But I promise one more email from "birthday mama" with a picture from Pink Cake Box or some of you ultra talented decorators on here, wanting a masterpiece for $25, I'm gonna lose what is left of my mind.

I think cake shows are on the way out, thank God. The new wave is the garbage picker shows. I see a new one of the auction/pickers/flippers shows practically every day.

I watched one the other day that was "baggage wars" not real sure I'd want somebodies dirty clothes that had been stuck in a suitcase for awhile. Nasty.

Eeew, I saw that one too and I said the same thing! My kids were watching it and they were grossed out by the concept too. There was one guy who bought a suitcase that ended up having little kids' bathing suits and other random junk in it. He made some comment about "do I get a tetanus shot now?" after he opened it. Nasty is right!

But you know what I read some where that people have gotten money, and I mean several thousands. Of course why someone had 10K cash in their suitcase is a little questionable to me. Anyway, another person found a 3 carat engagement ring, someone found a rare painting, things like that. I am sure that is few and far between, but it can happen. And when did that become a show!?! I've never heard of it.

I will still watch my cake shows "Amazing Cakes" and the other one, what's it called "Fabulous Cakes", but that's it. I wish ALL of the shows showed the prices.

It's new...I also saw that they have a new one about people who excavate places to dig up historical treasures etc, we were watching that one last night. One of those guys who buys the storage lockers said that 90% of what they find is total junk, but the 10% is what they show on tv, of course. I did see one article about how metal detectors are starting to sell out, so maybe people are moving on to thinking that they can make a fortune by doing that, instead of making cakes.

Personally, as a newly licensed legal baker, who spent $17,000 getting started, I would love to buy every illegal and cottage food baker in my tri state area a metal detector if they would stop undercutting me and go make their fortune out in the woods or on the beach with the thing.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Someone was saying the producers of the storage shows plant some of that stuff in the units. I do know that after those shows came on I noticed a big turn out when local storage units went up for sale. I actually wanted to start bidding on them myself. I sure what folks are storing around here would be the same junk I've got in my attic.

Annabakescakes....that's a thought.

I watched the cake shows for a while, but they drove me crazy. All the "stuff" that they put on the cakes and did to them sort of took the actual cake part out of the picture for me. I would be a wreck watching them transport them too.

I have a favor to ask....I have started another post in the cake decorating business forum and I really need some good input. It's the post "how do you buy supplies" I'm sorry but I don't know how to link it to this.
