I watch Cake Boss religiously. I watch it, record it, and sometimes re-re-watch it; that's how much I enjoy this show. Buddy and his crew are very talented and creative about their cake design.
Couple months ago, I watched one of the episodes about making some fashion inspired cakes for the fashion designer, Issac Mizrahi for his new Fall 2011 Collection Fashion Show. Issac Mizrahi debuted his Fall 2011 collection titled "Cake." at New York Fashion Week. The show was inspired by poodles and Wayne Thiebaud's painting of cakes.
Here are little recap from the show:
Issac stopped by Carlos Bakery in New Jeresy and asked Buddy Valastro to create some cakes for his fashion show. Not just Buddy needed to create the cakes, he also need to find a way to make the cakes light enough for the models to carry on the stage. It was a challenging project, but Buddy delivered great quality of the "cakes" (he used styrofoam to make the "cakes" and covered them with real fondant and fondant decorations) and meet the expectation of Issac.
