He acted like a spoiled child and accused the network of fixing the show to lean towards Duff. It was truly your artistry that won me over. Goldman and Valastro will go head-to-head each week. Edited March 18 by Bunnyette So I guess Buddy's temper tantrum last week caused them to add a judge so there would be a consensus to offset his future bullshit. Valastro, a proud New Jersey resident, tends to approach his cakes with an eye for detail, while Goldman prefers to push the limits of creativity to craft masterful and mind-bending edible concoctions. Some of the paintjobs are good. I just can't stand Buddy.
The results are fairly impressive overall, but I have yet to be blown away by the work of either baker. I really was stunned that he won the first round. The judges had a very tough decision with both of these cake displays. Do whatever feels right in your heart. That classic Italian fried dough was in his wheel house. That's who I'm talking about.
Duff hand made his ice cream, cones and toppings. If she beats Bobby Flay, awesome; if not, okay! I was expecting Duff to be a class act. Buddy does too but they're all relatives. Many people have been complaining about the way Buddy Valastro acts on the show and are actively rooting against him in the finale. Given the time constraints, both chefs needed to balance the decorative aspect as well as the taste factor. Buddy does too but they're all relatives.
That being said, I didn't really enjoy it. I'm cheering for Team Duff! Maybe it should have been Sylvia Weinstock vs Duff as that would have been a hoot as she is so funny on Nailed It and I think it would have been a more playful competition. That would have showcased it a bit more. But he is always like that. Still, no one should ever count out Buddy. Premiering Sunday, March 10 at 9 8c, the 6-week competition will challenge every aspect of what it means to be a true pastry artist and cake master. Again, he really pushed himself in this second to last challenge.
Given the theme, both Buddy and Duff had a vast amount of possibilities. And really, the beach treats, Buddy poured dough into a fryer…. While both cakes fit the theme, the approaches were very, very different. I did also watch Cake Boss. A showdown between long-time friends or even enemies would have some weight; Buddy vs. From molds to sculpting, Buddy tried to cover it all. He has employees who have been with him for many years which tells you something.
They just must be equals! Not only the authority of the show, but the cast also have to impress various other people like baking cake for the wedding, creating desserts for different parties and many more. Buddy vs Duff, not so much. See also In successive baking challenges, the proud Italian-American Buddy Valastro will face Goldman, the Charm City Cakes bakery owner. I could never watch his show because all of the screaming and tantrums and hysteria was just too much to take. Any takers on whether they end up in a tie after 12 rounds of competition? I'm probably more a fan of Richard Rawlings than I am of either Buddy or Duff.
The rest of the show has been as weird. Buddy made a really nice cake. For the bake-off, the two chefs had to create chocolate desserts that could conceal an engagement ring for two Food Network super fans. The show is all about two famous baking chefs in the food industry. What does it mean to be a baking boss? My only criticism would be, it might be a touch too tart. Buddy can stack, frost and fondant a cake with the best and he can do the standard piping that any cake shop can do very quickly but his details leave allot to be desired.
The fact that they gave him 4 points for difficulty was ridiculous vs Duffs 5 points. One of the things I like about Top Chef, Beat Bobby Flay and X Baking Championships that while there are egos, most of the people are competitive but pleasant and supportive. In a professional bakery, he needs to make lots of products on a bigger scale. Then in the Cake-Off round, they must construct car-inspired cakes with all the bells and whistles. And then the temper tantrum after he lost -- couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Much as it happens on their individual shows there will be different themes for every episode and the bakers will need to be able to adapt and use every skill they have to impress the judges. It was tacky , garish, and childish , just like Buddy himself! I remember back in the old cake competitions food network used to have where they had 8 hours, the cakes were prebaked, Kerry Vincent was one of the judges. It was especially convenient for Buddy to stalk off angrily and then argue with the executive producer so that he'd be perfectly framed in the background as Sherry and the host so bravely tried to save face. These all measuring criteria are going to be tested in the total of two rounds per episode. From intricate design to elevated presentation, Duff excels in those areas.
