The Cake Boss

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 😉

I’d like to thank my boss for introducing me to the crazy crazy world of Between Two Ferns.  Funny as hell. But come to think of it, is hell really funny? Alright. Whatever.

Funniest of them all for me so far is the one with Charlize Theron. But before I continue, I’d like to say that woman is gorgeous. I have become officially a fan of hers after watching this clip. Gorgeous. Another testament to the saying life is unfair. Rrrrrr…

Going back to the show, it never fails. It still makes me laugh every single time. You know, I already know it’s scripted (somehow) and that they’re faking it (getting angry, getting serious, and such)  but it still makes me laugh. Oh Lord. I think I have gone crazy.

Anyway, aside from the Charlize Theron episode I also like the one with Will Ferrell of course, Natalie Portman, Tila Tequilla and Jennifer Aniston, Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, and so on and so forth. Man. You gotta see it. I think they should make it a law, like everyone should watch at least one episode of Between Two Ferns a day. Try it. It’s good for your health. Funny or Die.
