In my opinion the team leader should have been let go because Martha tried to "hint" to him to pick Shawn to come back to the boardroom but he picked the two that didn't have anything to do with the sales. He didn't read Martha very well and to make it in corporate, you have to be able to "read" people. That is only my opinion. I enjoyed reading everybody else's.
Anyway, I think too they had bakers from the Culinary Institute assigned to them to help build the cakes. That's what my understanding was.
I personally would have discouraged my team from putting any color on a cake that could not be changed to suit the bride's needs. All white was the way to go. Again, just my opinion.
I was thinking the exact same thinkI am glad that girl is gone, but the pm should have been fired for making a bad decision. That was my first thought we Martha was calling the others back in. I think Trump has done that beforefired the pm for not bring the right people back into the boardroom. I did love the showthe cakes were beautiful!
I did have one question maybe someone could answerwhen they say they sold the cake, what does that meanis the cake decorator who helped the teams going to make the cake for them? Its not like selling flowers where the customers just take them home and the team is done, the wedding cakes still have to be made to their weddings. I was so confused about that.
