Now we have the green light. Everyone needs to set their rates starting at $5.00 per slice. No excuses.

Oh shoot I forgot there was a cake off on her show today. I didn't see it either. I wonder if it's anywhere we can watch it now.

Green light to what? My cakes already start at $5/serving.

Jaime, Oprah had Marina Sousa, the Cake Girls, and Duff on to create a cake with no rules. Basically, they got the first 15 minutes of the show. They each got to say something, explain their cake, and then the audience voted on the best cake. Guess who won? icon_smile.gif

Marina's cake was freaking gorgeous. Mary and Brenda did an amazing cake too. Theirs was a mosaic with 5000 fondant circles, amongst a million other details. Poor James Roselle didn't get any face time like Geoff did, though (about 5 seconds for Geoff ~ LOL).

Interesting...nothing technical was shown, just some serious eye candy.

Cakepro, mine do too! That comment was for those that have "no idea" what to charge or aren't charging enough.

Marina's cakes simply amazing! On the note of prices, just looking through her site she does offer sheet cakes... Sheet cakes are available to supplement larger parties and are priced at $4.50 per serving. See cake is cake regardless of shape and it costs! But you only get that great deal after your $600.00 minimum cake order as a supplement

Ah, a sheet cake for $4.50 serving? NICE!

LOL!! I wish I could. I am so glad that I read this thread because I wasnt going to watch this episode. The cake segment isnt written on the episode description on the DVR.


All of the cakes are nice, but I think my favorite was Marina's cake.

It's the same episode. It's in the beginning of the show.

Marina's was my fav cake too, although the cake girls are my fav designers.

It's come on in NY at 1:15 am but it's American Idol and such as Lambshack said, is that the same show?

It's the same show...the cakes are only on for about the first 15 min.

So I have to tell you about this, because I thought it was hilarious!

I was home sick yesterday and I was dreaming about Duff and other cake people being on Oprah (I'm serious...I was dreaming this) but was upset because I didn't get a picture of Duff! I was running around the audience trying to get pictures, but was sooo upset I couldn't get any of Duff.

Then I woke up, and saw what was on TV: Oprah, with Duff, Marina, etc. I started laughing and my DH (who had just gotten home) asked what was so funny. icon_wink.gif

Later that night, I dreamed one of our cats got out of the house and we couldn't find him. Thank goodness THAT wasn't real.

I once had a dream that turned out to be something that was on the news that day. I guess our selfconscious hears the TV!

I LOVED Marina's! The fact she didn't win should bring a lot of comfort to other cakers who enter contests and walk away without the blue ribbon even though they do amazing cakes.

I felt bad for Duff, he so didn't focus on "oprah" with his design.He looked out of place. Come on, you're going on the O show, it has to be all about her. "Hello"!!!

Awww... man - I wish I had known what the show was about. I would have watched it! I guess I'll hope for a re-run.

Yeah, globalgatherings, I agree. I LOVE Duff, but what was he thinking? His cake was amazing, just not for this show. Should've been about Oprah. No Doubt! icon_smile.gif

What do you mean by "green light" to start at $5.00/serv. ? Can you please explain. Thanks. icon_smile.gif

Oprah brought the idea of "custom cakes" to millions of people. Those are the top designers, and now even if people don't have cable, they know who they are and what they do. So now there is no reason to charge anythiing less than $5 because "mainstream" people now know what a real custom cake is...and it's not walmart.
