so over cupcake wars...please bring back Cake Challenges! - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I think I read somewhere (don't remember where) that Challenge might be coming back... but it would be more like the Halloween Wars challenges they did over the holidays with teams, etc.

I can't watch Sweet Genius or Cupcake Wars. I used to love watching Fabulous Cakes or Amazing Wedding Cakes. I don't know if they are still on anymore.

"Challenge" as we know it is gone, but they have been casting a new type of cake show. Don't know much about it other then a few of my CC pals here auditioned for it and may have been chosen.

I can't help but watch CC Wars, I DVR it. I recently got stuck watching an episode of Craft Wars and was HORRIFIED it was the exact same show - same editing, camera angles, package bits, and really bad writing as CC Wars. Only with Tori Spelling and lots of glue guns. Ug.

When I first heard Ron Ben-Israel was doing a show, I was so excited too I really thought we'd get to see HIS Sweet Genius in action. And maybe just being disappointed in that aspect is enough to have made me not that interested in the show itself. I really don't want to learn how to make a dessert with cheese, or hot sauce, or any of the other 'challenge" ingredients.

I would love to have Challenge back, as well as Amazing Wedding Cakes.

This is so funny. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't feel the value of this show. I DVR it and begin my routine:
FF through Candace & Florian's intros
Watch Contestants' intros
Watch the ingredients and hear what they have come up with
FF through baking
Watch C &F review cupcakes
Watch who gets booted
Watch the ingredients and hear what they have come up with
FF through baking
Watch C &F review cupcakes
FF until the end when they judge displays

I have now cut the show and advertising revenue down by 80%. That is why I should be and could never be a network exec!

Styrofoam, PVC pipe, welded metal, wood, and 50 pounds of rice crispy treats are not cake.

Vienna Sausages, spinach, chocolate, tabasco, and octopus will never be a frickin cupcake.

I used to be crazy for Food Network, and now I never watch.

Watch the Great British Bake Off, I love it. It has the best 12 amateur bakers in the country vying off to be the best, with no outlandish prizes other than being the best. No ridiculous ingredients that are not supposed to be in a cake or cc; plus some very instructive feedback from the lovely judges Mary Berry & Paul Hollywood (quite the silver fox if I may say so!). Not sure if you can get it on youtube but definitely worth watching imo.
