Any of the shows that would put a price tag on the cake would make a favorite list for me! Sooooo tired of people thinking some of the cakes they see are only $50 or LESS!

I've been watching marathon episodes of "Amazing Wedding Cakes" and I just love it...

I'm kind of obsessed actually...I could watch Christopher & his team every day, all day.

I like Duff...he's hilarious. I don't have a tv, tho, so I've only caught a few of his shows online.

I like all of them. There's always at least one thing interesting in each show. I don't know how many times I think, oh wow, I didn't think about doing that. Or, an ah ok, that's how I dorked XYZ up. I should have done ABC. All that being said I think I like the Challenges as it helps show me what can be done if I keep at it.

Happy Baking, icon_smile.gif

I enjoy nearly all of them. I especially like it when they show something being done long enought that I can tell how it's done (technique or stages in sculpting). I also really like it when the camera pans over a cake and I can see mistakes right before the camera changes it's view. It's not that I am critical. It just helps me realize that sometimes things don't work and it happens to everyone! However, it doesn't mean that a cake isn't still beautiful or awesome because of it. This helps me not get so down on myself! icon_smile.gif

Fabulous Cakes! they are truly fabulous and they give the costs of their cakes. They are usually between $2K - 4K.

I started liking them, but now I hardly watch any, maybe the Cake Boss sometimes...

In my opinion they are getting out of hand, with the sizes and the construction involved I just don't care to watch anymore. I use to like the great cake challenge but that too I think is out of hand.

All that stress for $10,000. or publicity is not worth it to me.

I like Fabulous Cakes because they show how the cakes are structured if your into that kind of thing AND they tell you how much their cakes cost!

Definitely Fabulous Cakes!!! They show you how things are done and you even see minor imperfections - it's great!

If I remember correctly, Sharon Z told us she spent as much money getting ready as the prize money would have been. That it was not worth it.

So, publicity, I guess, is all you get out of it. And it's not always good publicity.
