On Martha right now NBC - Page 2

post #16 of 54
I'm a reality show junkie. icon_razz.gif
Love Martha, love Apprentice, love Survivor, and especially love Amazing Race. I thought what Martha said about Sylvia was tactful. Sylvia also said that no one likes cupcake wedding cakes because of the papers. There have been some really beautiful cupcake wedding cakes on this site so that threw me a little and then Martha said you don't even need the papers. There seems to be a lot of whiners on this show but still entertaining. I'm so used to watching kids shows that anything remotely "adult" is a thrill for me! icon_lol.gif

I enjoyed the show but there is no way that these folks made these cakes. Fondant needs to be mastered to look that good.......and that piping just doesn't come to you....you need practice practice practice!!!!

We all know better....don't we?

Kos...I'm with you...I love reality TV...Big Brother, Survivor, Amazing Race...but I didn't care for this show too much.

The right person was dismissed...that girl needs an attitude adjustment for sure.

I am curious who made the beautiful flowers on top of the pink cake? They were really pretty.

I was hoping the show would have been more about the actual "making" of the cake...oh well! It was still fun to watch!

I went to bed before the show ended...

What did she say exactly about Sylvia... Maybe because Sylvia is a strong person and can speak her mind and mabye Martha and Sylvia have had their exchange of words.... ???? Maybe??? Anyone knows???

Well, I think Syliva can do a LOT better job on cakes than Martha!!!!

I don't know how much of the acutal cake they did, but the 2 girls from the matchstick team are chefs. . . but then again that doesn't say much considering it's a TV show and you CAN'T believe everything you see icon_eek.gif.

Last night was my first time watching the show - I read a post about it yesterday - thanks to who ever it was that posted it thumbs_up.gif

I think the right person was dimissed. She thought she was "Miss Thing" & she knew everything. How quickly she began "retracking" what she had said earlier. When that little 12 year-old project manager picked the 2 girls that baked and worked on the cake with the professional baker, I was so upset! It was not their fault the cake didn't get sold. It was the sales team's fault. Just think of how many times we've all bought something that we didn't really think was all that, but the sales person did such a good job, you break down and buy it. I know we've all been there & done that, can any one say "Make-up counter" at the mall??? You see??? The sales team had to support and promote the cake, no matter what their particular preferences were. They didn't even find out if they could give people color scheme options. . . Man-Oh-Man I would've LOVED to have participated in that contest.

And the nerve of that woman Shawn to come waltzing in the morning all rested and start to crticize everything about the cake! You just DON'T do that! After all, the pink was done b/c of her conversation with Sylvia Winestock. . . all they had to do was LOOK icon_eek.gif at Martha's magazines!
Gee, I subscribe to her Wedding Magazine b/c it has so many interesting and varied ideas! More that enough to please everyone's tastes!

Well, that was my 2ยข. . .

Well, I just wanted to add that I don't like reality shows... The people most of the time get on my nerves with their attitudes and almost rehearsed outbursts...

I have only watched a few and this one I only watched because of the section on cakes. I went to bed after the cakes were sold...

I don't watch the show, but yesterday I saw the forum about the show doing wedding cakes. I don't think they made the cakes-they lie alot on reality tv. I just want you ladies and gentlemen to know that some of you on here can charge 6/10 per slice b/c I've seen cakes in the gallery that look just as good or better. I'm trying to get as good as you guys are!

It was also my first time watching (Only because they were doing cakes), but I liked the show. I liked both cakes the ivory one the most. i think matchbox should have done the cake in all white or tell people that the pink can be changed to what ever they wanted it to be.

I loved martha's decision to fire Shawn. She had too much mouth. I am so glad her words came back to bite her in the you know what.

I ws thinking the samething. There is no way they could have finished those cakes and they look that good.

I will be watching next week.

If anyone know when the show will air again please tell. I would love to see it again. I missed parts of it. (I had to get the baby to bed).


My 2 cents.

I felt the cakes were a bit expensive and I am in New York. $6 was o.k but $10 I don't know.

Martha didn't say anthing mean about Sylvia. She said that Sylvia caters to a niche market. The task was to create a cake with mass appeal. I love Martha, but I don't know where she got this bunch of candidates. They are pitiful compared to Trump's candidates. Seeing how so many people would love to work for Martha, I can't understand why they don't have more talented people on her show. Half of her candidates barely seem sane. icon_razz.gif

This was also my first time watching the show. I missed the first 10 minutes where I suppose the rules were laid out. I assumed that they had to sell the cakes "as is" and not make any design changes, including color, based on the remarks made by the sales people on the losing team. Also, because the man that oversees the group said that they had a bad sales attack.

I think that Martha certainly made the right choice. That woman wouldn't take any responsibility for her poor attitude and then to retract such a bold statement? C'mon! Be a grownup! I actually liked both cakes. Though, I did see the top tier bulging pretty noticibly on one of the shots when they were selling it (could've been the angle, but it looked bad to me).

I was shocked that the project leader chose the two that he did - one who was trying to throw REASON into the project and not go over the top and the other one who stayed up all night with it? I was floored.

The woman that you are talking about, is it the one with the blond very short hair?

I didn't like her the moment I saw her enter the room in teams at the beginning of the show.

Did you notice how she came in with her hand inside her pant side pocket, like saying..."I am all that, look at me?"

Is this the one that got fired? Just her and who else?
