OK - I admit it. I love watching Cake Boss. I'm a fan of any show that features sweets and uses cool tools.
The situations are totally contrived. I question the sanitary aspects of using a power drill around food. And I can't imagine how they can possibly run a business when it seems like the whole staff has to drop everything and rally around to finish that cake in the shape of a venus fly trap.
But I love it all the same. People seem genuinely excited when they get these fancy cakes. What they are able to do with cake and frosting is amazing. Nobody gets sick, nobody dies, nobody even gets hurt.
