Is the cupcake girls the one with the sisters? And the mom that seriously sucks at anything she does at their little bakery? Because I like watching them build stuff out of cupcakes, but that mom needs to stay the heck out of there- drives me nuts watching her stumble around and screw stuff up.

Cake boss is getting too personal for me, and the sisters are annoying as all get out. But he does some fantastic cakes and it's interesting to watch them being put together. I also love his attention to detail even in the cookies he sells and how he, at least in the show, insists on quality in his display cases.

But since our tv was recently broken, I haven't been able to watch either one... icon_sad.gif

Wow comparing cupcake girls and cake boss is a big difference. I must say I like Cake Boss. I feel cupcake girls their cupcakes are not that spetacular. I have not seen an episode where they do not just present cupcakes as ordinary cupcakes like how georgetown cupcakes use their cupcakes to make a dress out of or a gorilla. Cake Boss he just create some awesome cakes.

They're both so scripted - I just wish they would just cook. I'm so tired of all the personalities and all the yelling. I agree, Buddy makes some awesome cakes but sometimes have to watch it muted. I prefer Awesome Cakes - all cake, shows construction and prices charged for cake. Wish they had more episodes.

Totally agree with jeartist. Awesome Cakes at least shows some interesting decorating methods and gives people a more realistic view of what it takes to really make the more complicated cakes. The rest are all drama - not worth investing the time to watch!

Another agreement with jeartist. Mute Cake Boss to watch and it is good. I just want to see the cakes, not hear the drama.

I do not like the Cupcake Girls show because they are very whiny. People are paying them and they have a busy business but there is far too much complaining, as if they are not liking what they do. I was really turned off when they needed to make some gluten-free cupcakes and they weren't taking the right precautions first to make sure there was no cross contamination. Then they tasted one of the cupcakes which didnt leave them enough for their order. Really? You don't make slightly more than you need in case one breaks or burns or falls? Believe me, I'm not saying Buddy's sisters don't whine, because they sure do! But Buddy's creativity and their problem solving is always interesting to me. I just wish more of them would make their total cakes more edible. Just because metal parts have modeling chocolate over them does not make it an edible cake!

Cake Boss....definately.....But have to side with jeartist on this one....AWESOME CAKES is a great show and they actually show you sometimes howthey'll construct certain cakes....

I can't stand either show, too much yelling, whining and drama. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fabulous cakes. I wish it was on every week!

shanter Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 3:51pm

I agree with jeartist and Annabakescakes, I can't stand either show because of the yelling and whining. I'm not a bit interested in cupcakes except to eat them and I migjht try watching Cake Boss with the sound muted--I feel really dumb that I didn't think of that.

Are Awsome Cakes and Fabulous Cakes two different shows? What channel are they on and when? I don't think I've ever seen one.

Thanks.

Are you sure you are talking about the right show? "Cupcake Girls" is about Cupcakes (the franchise) in Canada with the 2 besties, or "DC Cupcakes" which is about Georgetown Cupcakes in DC with the obnoxious sisters? They are VERY different shows. I've watched every episode (I think) of Cupcake Girls and there's very little drama or yelling. Yes, it's somewhat scripted but each episode has a business drama focus with personal stuff on the side. I don't think Cupcake Girls is the gluten-free cupcake episode mentioned because they don't do custom like that... and that totally sounds like something DC Cupcakes would do.

I love Cupcake Girls because it's about how 2 successful women run a cupcake franchise. It's not a show about making cupcakes and it's not a show about how to decorate a cake.

I HATE DC Cupcakes because I can't stand those morons and their MUMMIE!!!!!!!! They are inept, moronic, obnoxious, and completely fake down to their stupid pink rain boots. After watching some of that show and seeing all the stuff they stole from others (like acting like they invented the use of tonic water to make stuff glow when Mary from Cakegirls was the 1st to bring that to the world) I have zero respect for them. Also after watching MUMMIE!!!!!! double-dipping licking batter off her fingers that they baked up and sold to the public make me wonder how many patrons in DC have essentially ate that woman's spit. Just disgusting.

I also HATE Cakeboss.

theresaf Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 4:09pm

FromScratchSF - Sorry I thought the two cupcake shows were the same! My complaint IS with the DCCupcakes ladies! But I do love CAKEBOSS!

Kiddiekakes Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 4:09pm

LOL FromScratchSF...You made me laugh...Yes..the Cupcake Girls is shot out of Vancouver here in Canada.I really like it because it show the business side of it and how things can and will go wrong...Sorry but DC cupakes is a Phony as they come...and them calling their MOM.."Mummie" makes me Puke!!

jeartist Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 4:23pm

Shanter, I think it is Fabulous Cakes. My bad. And I enjoy Amazing Wedding Cakes too.

AHH! You're right! Sorry, Cupcake Girls!!! I completely agree with your assessment, too, FromScratch. I didn't see the double-dipping, but someone should call the health Dept and show them the tape. That is nauseating!

I only watched it once or twice, but I saw where they made some hideous mosaic with the cupcakes for their parents and it was HUGE, and they didn't think about getting it through the door, DUH! It made it there, but man was ugly! And they were fighting about bacon and I remember something unsanitary, but it escapes me...

BizCoCos Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 5:58pm

unfortunately, don't get cupcake girls whick I liked, the dc show
did not like the awesome and fabulous cakes are the best, hate the yelling on cake boss but still my favorite show.

FromScratchSF Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 6:02pm

LOL! There was even an episode with MUMMIE!!!!! drinking straight from a bottle of booze then dumping booze into the hobart while it was mixing batter. Then they cut to the interview section with the sisters going, "Aw jeezes, MUMMIE!!!!!! is so funny when she drinks!" I am paraphrasing, I don't remember exactly what they said but it sure wasn't "OMG I'm so mad at MUMMIE!!!! because we had to dump 20 quarts of contaminated batter and remake it for those 100000000 cupcakes that we have to make in 2 hours!"

Just disgusting.

BelaB Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 6:16pm

FromScratchSF- You crack me up and are absolutely right! I can't stand the DC Cupcake girls ---- and the Cake Boss gives me a headache -- I can't take the whining. Fabulous Cakes is awesome and so is Amazing Wedding Cakes -- they just don't have enough episodes of those.

Annabakescakes Posted 5 Oct 2011 , 8:05pm

Oh, man, you are cracking me up, fromscratch! I may watch some episodes online closer to Halloween so I can get my fright-on watching MUMMIE!!! slobber all over everything in sight while the girls are screeching.

I apologize if I''m being dense, but what exactly are you saying? That there is one show called "Fabulous Cakes"? Or are you saying that there are two shows, one called "Fabulous Cakes" and another called "Amazing Cakes" (but no show called "Awsome Cakes")?

Can someone tell me where I might find this (or these, or any of the above) show(s) so I can watch it/them?

I love them both, but never have time to watch tv anymore since i started the business icon_cry.gif so i can't tell you when they are on.
