what the heck is wrong with her, is she crazy?
and wasn't she the same one who let her bridge fall, and thought it was funny?
I looked up her website since her stuff is always so non-cakey, and she's not really a cake decorator. She does art pieces that are kind of environmental art that uses food and non-permanent materials. I actually like her stuff a lot if you look at it like artwork, not cakes. I get the concepts of her challenge pieces now that I looked at her website and the pictures of other things she's done. It's a lot of installation artwork that's designed to disappear and not affect the environment it's placed in once it goes away. As a former art student I appreciate the idea and I like her work if I look at it like that.
I don't know how they got her involved with the cake challenges, it doesn't look like she's a baker at all. I think they use her as the "wild card" who they can rely on to do something off the wall. She makes good tv!
i didn't think the Christmas Tree challenge was about cake. It was about edible ornaments. Yes Melissa was a cake artist.. but non of the others were.. one guy was a pastry chef, one was an environmental person, and the other guy was a florist.
I think she was the same one..it is just starting here in Alaska, I am waiting to see what she does this time. Sunday is holiday cake night on Food Network...cant wait for that!
