I feel bad if this post is too negative. Don't take it seriously.

Have any of you seen the TLC show Cake Boss? My wife is an excellent cake maker, so sometimes it's on the tube at our house. Right now my daughter is watching it.

Anyway, I can't take it anymore and had to post to relieve my turmoil. What a contrived show. It should be called "Fake Boss", b/c it's so obvious that all the 'drama' in each episode is manufactured for TV. I can't believe people fall for it as authentic. It's like the producer says, "Ok, this time we need all eight of you yelling at each other about not making the deadline" (in New Jersey accents). Of course the (pseudo-) disaster is always averted, and everyone is in fine shape for the next go-round. Eye-roll City!! ::)

BTW, the cakes START at $1,000.00 :eek:

Ok, I feel better. Thanks. Gotta get back to the show now -- things are starting to get tense and I'm afraid they might not fill their order in time!!!

the creativity is interesting the first couple of times. after that enough is enough. i want to eat cake, not eat a construction project made out of flour, sugar and other materials...

Not negative at all Hop - its the TRUTH !! Same goes for Pawn Stars ( which i actually love !), totally scripted and fake. SOME of Buddies cakes are pretty neat but others like Don says are nothing but kids construction projects ! And who the heck wants a cake thats half rice krispie treats for a GRAND anyhow ?? Lacks everything i would expect for that price. Worst part of that show is the hyper annoying sisters, screechy new yawker italian makes me want to vomit.

Thanks, SL, that's reassuring. :) I know it's easier to be critical than positive, but every now & then . . .

Sorry, I'm an Ace of Cakes girl myself. Duff is actually pretty cool.

Boy, I hate to say it, but if Buddy ends up somewhere with lead boots on, I'm not entirely sure I'd be too sad... ::)

Gee, I'd love to, Thom, but I'm fairly certain I have something less painful already lined up for that day.

What radio station are you listening to that is reporting "Cake Boss news"? Man up!! :D

Hop,

Is that show on ESPN or ESPN2? If not, I've missed it......

J/K ;D

My wife watches the show. I've not been home really, so I only hear about it. When I get home the wife & I have to figure out who runs the TV remote....

And I really cannot watch anything that is "reality" TV, period. It gags me...

I like that one too, but even on that one, they try to fabricate drama. Hard to do with a bunch of no-BS people, but they sure do try with their editing and narration.
