I was totally going to post NY Cake Girl's new blog post too! I think she might have an account on CC!
Look, what gave anyone the idea this was a teaching show? I watched the same commercials on the Food Network as you did - not once did did it show Ron baking or decorating a cake, nor did it show anyone baking or decorating wedding cakes. It clearly was a competition show. They posted on Facebook what the show was. They wrote a blog post about it. Are all the haters really that dense that they thought it would be something that it wasn't out of wishful thinking?
For such an icon in the cake world, Ron gives more for free to the community and has opened up his shop for all to see more then any other cake artist I know. He gives more info about his business then most of the people on this forum, from his recipes to demo videos posted online, as well as teaching classes and being available to the general public. Bottom line, he rules and he could eat any of our lunches.
Take what you can get from him and be happy with that, because complaining that he isn't teaching you how to make his cakes FOR FREE is just plain ridiculous. If you don't like the show, don't want to watch another competition show, or don't like his character, you have a little button on your remote that changes the channel. But please refrain from complaining about HIM further because he can shut us out, and that would be a real disservice to the caking community as a whole. We need him, but he sure as hell does NOT need us.
