I am a Britney fan. I liked her cake, GMA said it took 60 hours to make.

There was another thread on this topic posted this past week in which the cake decorator was identified - not sure what the thread was called though??

OMG! I have to tell my friend at work. She grew up with Buddy and was showing me his cakes not a couple months ago when she found out I was making cakes....hysterical!

Trixyinaz -- that's so cool! He's actually teaching our cake club here in NJ a class on fondant/gumpaste in january. i haven't signed up for it yet though... It's really expensive and I'm already signed up for another class the same day so I'm debating on what I want to do.. his stuff is really nice so it might outweigh the cost.

Hey Stephanie --- My co-worker Laura said he is very talented....obviously. How cool for you to get to do a class with him. I would LOVE to. I need to join a cake club here in Michigan, but working full-time and doing this on the side, not to mention having a 4 year old, doesn't leave much time. Anyway, I want to say she told me he made her wedding cake and that it was to die for. I'm trying to remember all that she told me about him, but it was a few months ago and you know with age, my memory isn't that great anymore. I sent her a link to this thread so she could see that he did Brittney's cake.

Keep me posted on when you take his class. I can't wait to see what you produce...if you decide to take his class. How long of a class is it and how much is it?

Very cool, but I don't think that would take 60 hours. Seems a bit extreme...

I thought it extreme, too, considering they had the whole cake staff right there on the GMA! But that's what they said...

Hey Vicki -- well the cost for his class is $155 and this is the description: Buddy will teach us how to crumb coat a 7 inch round cake, cover it in fondant, apply some piping and create his signature gumpaste roses from start to finish to top off the completed cake.

And he will be providing the cakes and any tools so we pretty much just show up. I haven't decided yet.. His cakes are really nice so it might be worth it. I would definitely recomend joining a club if you have one nearby. I have three little ones but I only work part time. It's really nice to get out of the house once a month and do something fun!

That would take me 60 hours, but I work slow. Even if they have 6 guys working on it and it takes them 10 hours, that's still 60 manhours you have to pay out.

I love Britney and the cake looks good, it matches her new CD which is called Circus, although I don't care for the flame thingies at the bottom. icon_smile.gif I'm so glad she has a new CD out!

Met Buddy. He has talent. Take a class from him if you can.

i like the cake...it's well executed

BUT...

only if it was for a kid's birthday. in my opinion, this in no way, shape, or form says "britney" or the feel of her cd. she's all about shock value, risque and suggestive lyrics, dancing with heat, passion, sexual innuendos...the colors of this cake, and especially the letters spelling out "circus" screams child-like to me.

to me the most important thing about being able to put a shingle outside your door saying you do cakes is the ability TO KNOW YOUR CLIENT AND DESIGN APPROPRIATELY. i would have done this cake with reds, blacks, and whites, with alot of romantic/sexua/theatrical darkness to it...

I agree with mininvixen. Its a well executed cake but dont think that it relates to Britney in any shape or form. Looks like a kids birthday cake or something. I like his work, dont get me wrong, but from what I see on the Challenges, he has a hard time reading what his clients/judges want and has an attitude that its right in his mind and he isnt going to change it!
Should of been more daring of a cake, silouettes,glitter, glam. My opinion!

Yeah...it's nice and all, but still a pretty basic design....not exactly pushing the envelope or anything. 60 hours?? It wouldn't even take me 60 hours to do that cake by myself!

Ohhh red, black and white sounds good. even pink and black since pink is her favorite color. I don't think they "customized" the cake to fit her though, maybe just the fact that her CD is entitled Circus and the colors seemed "fun and kid-like"? hehe.

Oh Yea! that cake would have been awesome if it were pink black and white. It looks like it was made for one of her sons instead though. I think they chose those colors based on her new album, i just looked up the album art and those are the colors.

The colors on the cake match the colors on her album cover:

I think it's a great looking cake! Plus, I just love Brit and I can't wait to see her when she comes to Big D!

Thought about going but it was going to cost a fortune (tickets, hotel, GAS, etc.) so decided against.

(I luv her, VanHalen too...)

The decorator was most likely given specific directions on color and design. I mean, how many of us get free reign, always? The cake is very well executed.

I don't thinnk I would pay anything to learn how to crumb coat, cover a cake, pipe a little, and make roses. I mean, I can do all that already. If it was something more extreme or fun, then yes, I would be more than glad to pony up.

I love her too! I wish she'd have a show here. I'd definitely go. I've been a fan since Baby one more time. icon_smile.gif

Yeah, I'm kind of a fast worker. I would think the longest part would be the baking process. At least 6-7 hours there. (Usually takes me about 1 hour/tier) But even after that, the designs on it are pretty basic, it seems extreme. But that's just me! icon_biggrin.gif Who knows, it could take me just as long to do it! icon_lol.gif

I think that cake is pretty neat! I've enjoyed many of Buddy's creations on the cake challenges, and he has quite a personality! Very talented. I agree that the cake doesn't scream Britney, but it does scream Circus, which is the whole point. Those are sort of traditional circus colors, and with that being her new album, I'm certain that's the direction they were heading for. I think it's nicely done and definitely captures a circus feeling.
