i've been watching the show a lot recently, i used to not care that much about it but somehow it got me hooked now with massive craves of cake, but i noticed that sometimes they make em with polystyrene (the material, not the punk). is that a normal thing? it seems handy for when it's just for showing, but it also seems pretty fake to build a cake that's not an actual cake.

anyway, i like the show, it's funny.

for the most part it's just a sculpture, so whether it's out of cake or something else I don't think it really matters that much.

well i'd imagine it's harder to make a sculpture out of cake cake than polystyrene, specially since you can get some real hard and tough polystyrene.

I'd imagine most are about the same density.

I think its more to do with cost, people actually buy dummy cakes but personally i will always want cake you can eat and not just cake you look at.

i just read that they do that on weddings, since they sometimes take away the cake to cut it, nobody sees the fake cake

It makes sense...if you want a big fancy cake but only need a certain amount of actual cake for guests or what ever. But still, i want it all to be cake!!

is that your take as a dude who likes to make cakes? 'cause if i remember you're not a big cake consumer.

It is my take, yes, perhaps it should be noted that whilst i am not inclined to gorge myself on cake i am even less likely to gorge myself on polystyrene! Besides i like being able to share cake, thats why i like to make them, i don't fancy sharing fake cake!

The cake show I like to watch is called Cake Boss and its about an italian family in Jersey who make cakes. The cakes are crazy and they are always 100% edible.

we dont have that over here, but it makes me wonder wich is a higher title, a cake boss or an ace of cakes

I'm hungry now. I want cake.

I used to love Ace of Cakes, but I feel like it got less entertaining and the cakes didn't seem as awesome.

The Cake Boss dude drives me nuts.

I love watching the cake challenges on Food Network!

He just irritates me at times. I can't really pinpoint it.

One of my skirts actually appeared on an episode of Cake Boss! (very briefly)

(at 1:55 the girl in the middle with the pink and black skirt, it was an old design from when I used to do lolita clothes)

still didn't quite win me over, I preferred Ace of Cakes because I found a lot of the people who worked there entertaining, I think they reminded me a lot of of the kids I went to art school with.
