I was watching "Amazing Wedding Cake" and the guy from NY "The Cake Artist" made a topsy turvy wedding cake and used 48 dowels for a four tier cake!!!!!! Holy Dowels Batman! The dowels were so close together, I can't imagine how the cake did not completely fall apart., instead of just the one tier.

What? I guess he'll have to learn the hard way when it crumbles and breaks away from all of the perforations!

And he even gets his own show, imagine that!

I saw that. I bought the season on iTunes. I stopped that video so many times. I got screenshots. It was all unbelievable.

I can't believe they have that on TV. Hope not too many beginners watch and learn from him!

I saw that, too!! And his cake DID crack! He just patched it with icing!

I couldn't believe it as I was watching it... he just stacked the topsy-turvy tiers on top of each other at a slant. Don't know how it didn't just fall apart!

I am very new at this I and even I know better than that! icon_smile.gif

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that noticed that! My question is how would you even cut that cake, at least what would be left of it!?

And then it bounced along in his SUV all over Jersey as he tried to take it to the wrong venue.

LOL.

...while swearing all the way from shop to wrong venue and back to right venue.

So disappointed in WE TV for choosing that shop for the season. There are so many talented people out there. Thank goodness I can fast forward.

I have to add that I wasn't impressed with that cake. It wasn't a very good topsy turvy cake.

You know that they are giving him an entire series. Sure it's going to be just another Cake Boss- focused on the drama and not the cakes.

Exactly my thoughts. I thought about cake boss and all the drama. I watched CB once and that was enough.

I saw that show too! I could hardly believe it when he told her they were putting all those dowels in the cake. I'm not a pro at this, but I thought there is no way I would ever put 48 dowels in a cake! How in the world would you cut the pieces?! Crazy!!!

Not only that, but they "needed to be thick dowels." They were almost the size of a broom stick. I don't think there was too much cake left around them. She had to use an electric saw to cut them and it still took some effort.
