Does anyone else watch Cake Boss?  I love his New Jersey accent and that everything is so family-centered.  I think it's awesome!  :-)

We catch it every once in a while.  It's fun to see how they run the shop and what kind of antics they get into.

I watched it weekly for awhile, but it started to grate my nerves a bit.  It's a little too 'rainbows and sunshine' for me.  Buddy's always raving about how wonderful these people are and that's why he's going to help them out by making them a cake.  Uh, yeah, that and the money they pay you as well as the money TLC pays you.  It just seems really fake.

My daughter loves it. I just get hungry and jones for sugar.

It does bug me a bit how he goes on about how great his customers are, but uh, that cake costs more than one of our vehicles. Just guessing.

 


I was off to save the world, but I got distracted by something shiny.

My kids love it. I try to watch but it's so fake and staged, I just can't take it. The acting is horrible, the situations they find themselves in aren't believable - it's just dreadful.

I've watched it some but I keep feeling like the customers have been sought out instead of just being regular customers to the shop.  It feels fake and preplanned. The cakes are fun though!

I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone in my thinking!

We love it (I'm watching it right now, actually).  I enjoyed last night's show when they had their baby.  Such a cool cake he made for his wife!  The accents are the best part, to me... well, and all the cool cakes, of course. 

 

DH and I were just talking yesterday about how we'd love a fondant roller like they use; it really kills your hands to roll it out manually.
