Cake Boss

Guest post written by Rolf Tate


Being an avid fan of Ace of Cakes, I was disappointed to here that this season would be it's final season on air. I was pleasantly surprised to find a show very similar to it in Cake Boss on the TLC channel. I already watch a few TV shows on the TLC channel regularly on direct TV and Cake Boss is just another show added to the list. In my humble opinion it is even better than Ace of Cakes. It's really the entire Ace of Cakes concept of either taking on way too many jobs for the week or having to produce a cake that becomes an elaborate thirty hour event. I know what you are thinking, "If it's the same, how is it better?" Two words: Jersey accents. Jersey accents are just way more entertaining and funnier than a bunch of wannabe rock stars using rock n' roll music metaphors. Plus wannabe mobsters are way more entertaining than wannabe rock stars. In addition, not to be mean, but watching them fail is funnier than watching them succeed; and they fail a lot. The show follows Chef Buddy Valastro of Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey as he tries to make ridiculous moving robot cakes, Tower of Pisa cakes and the like. Buddy is your typical arrogant bloke who basically blames everyone but himself when things inevitably go wrong. Seriously, I don't know the first thing about baking cakes, but I do know that cakes aren't supposed to move.
