The Cake Boss

Posted: November 29, 2012 in TV, Unreal

Let me put this on record: TLC is my new favorite cable channel. I don’t care if you think that’s too girlie of me or that’s so gay, I just don’t care. And hey, being girlie and gay ain’t bad right? It’s actually a good thing if you ask me. Anyway…

TLC, they’ve got really nice shows. Well, I haven’t really watched too many series on this channel however every time I come across it, it always gets my attention and the next thing I know, I have stopped whatever I was doing prior and I’m seated in front of the TV like a little child watching his cartoon stuff. It’s a nice “distraction”.

So far, I like The Layover with Anthony BourdainBridget’s Sexiest BeachesExtreme Couponing, and the most recent thing that got me hooked, The Cake Boss. These are really nice shows (for me) but let me warn you, don’t trust my preference when it comes to show. It’s usually the boring ones with kind of ordinary but really out of the ordinary subplots. Yeah? I know you know what I mean.

For today’s episode, I’d like to feature the Carlos Bake Shop and their extraordinary recipe for their sweet success. I have watched a few episodes of the show but I must say it’s interesting to say the least (again, don’t put all your lunch money on that). It’s about a family owned bakeshop located in Hoboken, New Jersey that specializes mainly on cake decorations for all occasions – weddings, birthdays, hobbies, parties, special events and gatherings, and a whole lot more. They have created a NASA spaceship, a zombie, a life size replica of Buddy’s (THE Master Baker. Insert your jokes here) wife, Bumbleebee, the whole cast Sesame Street and so on and so forth, all those made out of cakes! Edible at that. It’s crazy. It’s one of those things that you should see it to believe it. Below are just some of the episodes I’ve watched and I know I haven’t seen nothing yet.

What do you think should be their next project? A life size city made out of cakes? With traffic lights and cars and busy people and buildings and stuff. You never know what a great master baker can do 😉
