Ali, I think what you said about the pink being too bright was right. I also think that when Sylvia W. said that pink was "in" she was talking about a more subtle pink. I think she also meant that the whole cake should be like a candlelight pink, not pink bows. I thought the bows were ok, but I have seen MUCH better bows by our members here on CC.
I thought it was kinda funny that they staged the team members with piping bags in their hands....like THEY were the ones doing the work on the cakes. LOL
I am soooo glad that Martha over-rode the decision of the leader of the creative team. This was the first episode I have seen, but the poor girl that didn't say anything the whole time and the girl that stayed up all night, CERTAINLY did not deserve to be the ones chosen. I am so glad Shawna got the boot. I know it is hard to sell something that you don't believe in or have strong feelings about, but she should have "faked it" LOL That is what selling is, according to her, but she sure didn't show it. You could plainly see that she didn't like that cake. And she just kept trying to TOUCH IT!!!! LOL!!! I would have smacked her!
The ivory cake was just lovely!!!! I was shocked that they only charged $6/slice for it...especially being in New York. The other one should have been $6. It was pretty, but definitely not as nice as the ivory one.
All in all, I LOVED THIS show!!!!
I think they will be airing it again on CNBC sometime this week. They did that with the last show.
I would have hated to be in this competition. LOL Not really, but I would have been FREAKIN NERVOUS as heck!!
