It's more like which ones DON'T I watch! icon_lol.gif Any cake or cupcake show I can find, I record. I watch the three you have listed plus Cupcake Wars, Cake Boss (who's new season starts Monday), D.C Cupcakes. Two shows I can't seem to find anymore is Amazing Wedding Cakes & Have Cake, Will Travel. Amazing Wedding Cakes was my favorite & I picked up a lot of tips & ideas from the designers. Also Ace of Cakes but is that even on anymore?

If Cupcake wars is the one where they start with 4 contestants and in the end the last two remaining have to make huge displays of about 1000 cupcakes I've watched a few of those.

Cake Boss Next Great Baker
Amazing Cakes

Top Chef Just Desserts- I like all the Top Chef franchises but this one is my favorite.

Sweet Genius- Ron Ben-Israel's on air presence was much better in the second season, it's obvious people from Food Network are working with him.

The Next Great Baker- like a train wreck to me...I hate it but watch it anyway.

I miss Challenge, it was my favorite. I liked duff and his crew, too. I'm over Cake Boss and not really into the cupcake shows although I've watched Cupcake Wars a few times.

I tried to watch sweet genius... Just because I love Ron Ben Israel... The show sucks.... I thought he would do a cake show and share his talent with the world... I was wrong... I want Ron to do cakes and flowers.... Anyone else feel the same way...

Absolutely. I love his cakes and was hoping for an instructional-type (or at least demontration-type) show. Instead it's another contest show with weird items, like Chopped for Desserts. I also don't watch the cupcake shows because I'm not interested. There aren't many cake shows left that I actually could see. I have to watch Cake Boss with the sound turned off. I miss Ace of Cakes.
