Food Network Challenge is my favorite show, particularly the cake making challenges. The work they do is amazing. The premises of the show is the bakers have a set amount of time to decorate (usually 6-8 hours) and put together an entire cake. Over 50% of the work must be done on set and most of the time there is a height requirement (3ft). As many of you may know I love to cook and to bake. But cake making is a whole new ball game. I don't have the patience, plus I am kinda clumsy (Messy Jessie). So watching this show gives me a whole new appreciation for cake making and decorating. The other day I watched the most impressive episode where the cake makers designed cakes that told the stories of their lives. Their colors, structures, and especially the detail work is amazing. If you haven't seen the show you should definitely check it out because even if you don't cook/bake you will be astonished by their work. If you miss the new episode they replay them at different times everyday.
**Can I have this cake for my baby shower? (yeah right)
