The show was great tonight! Even though I feel sorry for the one that followed the brides exact instructions and then found herself making a cake she wasn't proud of at all! The winning cake was adorable.

I hate this new format that they have for the challenges. Pick you family by running and playing hide n seek. have the bride work with you? Whatever! pink box cake would have been great had she been able to complete the cake. It was the only one that the bride asked for. I love the design concept is just lacked time for full excution. Having people "help" in the kitchen who do not know what is going on and even fasting to lose weight, they are not any help. Buddy's bride was a big help and that was a major factor for completing his cake. They all were good cakes.

I agree that the cake was all about what the bride wanted! At one point (when they offered the 1K) she even says that it's all her idea and if she walks away it's not because the decorator wasn't doing a good job, but because SHE didn't have a good design, or something to that effect. At least she realized that! icon_lol.gif Anne did great work, especially under the circumstances.

Anne was so upset when she came home from this challenge, but she did much better in her second challenge (which I think will air on May 17--and she was able to bring her creative director/head decorator, Cathy Olate, with her for that one, and Cathy is SOOOOOOOO talented!), so I can't wait to see that one!

It was a very ambitious design with lots of detail to be done in the time restraint with a novice assistant. If you know her personally, please relay to her that with all of that factored in, she did a great job. I absolutely respect her for working with the bride's dream cake design instead of trying to convince the bride "oh no ... you've no idea what you REALLY want ... let me show you want you want." That alone puts her at the top of my respect list.

Yeah indydeb, I agree. While the other 3 did great designs, they were "their" design and not the bride's.

As a hairstylist I would have been out of business years ago if I gave every client that sat in my chair the haircut that "I" wanted them to have instead of the haircut that "THEY" wanted.

I think as professionals we can "counsel" our clients a bit on design, but in the end they are the ones paying us, so we should deliver what they ask for.

I don't know Anne personally, but I thought her cake was pretty. I don't know if I am wrong here, but wasn't she the only one that really incorporated what the bride wanted.

Bobby's cake was beautiful, but the bride stated, Her colors weren't pink!" I do know that the chefs have to stand before the judges after the cake is finished, but I really thought that were hard on her...perhaps a little too hard??

Was this her first challenge? If so, to be your first challenge and be given someone that is not experienced to help?? I think she did a great job!!

I just finished watching it. And WOW did Buddy do amazing or what? How on earth did he get all those flowers done? The peony cake in my gallery took me weeks to do like 15 flowers-how did he do it? So beautiful.

Anne is one of my favorite designers ever. She is so talented and I think even that cake wasn't all too bad. I hope she gets back on the horse and shows them all the talent she has. I am so smitten with her bakery and cakes, I want to be like her when I grow up. (Except wait, we are probably the same age. icon_lol.gif )

I am with indydebi on this one..

Yes Buddy made a beautiful cake but it wasn't what his bride wanted.
Anne was the only one who followed her brides wants. If a bride came to me and said I want a white cake with black flowers I am sure not going to say no you don't, you want a yellow cake with green flowers and that is what you are getting !

Anne did a great job and followed the premise of the challenge.
I am so sorry that she was upset , and I don't think the judging stayed true to the task at hand.

I was thinking the same thing.

I'm so glad Buddy won, his cake was beautiful!

I think at some point or another we all have to make a cake we are not happy with but if it is what the bride wants then it is what the bride gets. Although my favorite cake was Buddy's, Anne did a great job considering the design and bride she had to work with. I love their work!
