My sister knew a professional on one of these shows who got booted not because his cake sucked but because he was almost too professional and didn’t have the hobbyist personality they’re trying to appeal to on this network. Seldom do any of the people on these shows know who to bake for shit lmao. My sister is also a huge Pokémon fan so I should enrage her beyond all belief by showing her this

Yeah that may be an unfair generalization on my part. I live in britain and ive had almost no run ins with fondant here, everyone just uses regular icing.

But when i went to the states every slice of cake i had was smothered in the stuff, it was bloody awful.
Yeah, our cakes go for sugar-sugar-sugar as a flavor (if you can even call that a flavor) over everything else.

I was talking to someone who immigrated from Africa a few weeks ago who was shocked about how the two flavors in pre-made foods here are "very sweet" and "very salty."

God I hate icing.

I would make a pikachu lemon pound cake, with a lemon gel making the outer layer, would use a blueberry gel for the eyes and stuff.

Having previously worked at a bakery myself, the use of fondant seems like a abomination to me.

Real icing should be made from butter creme, whipped egg whites and sugar, or even melted cooking chocolate.

In France it is mostly chocolate and whipped egg whites and sugar. But most cake doesn't have icing.
