I saw that too…I was totally talking outloud to the TV and I was like "Holy crap!"  And then I kinda laughed because of the faces on those guys.  Artistic wise, I think Ace of Cakes is just slightly better, but it’s in a different way.  He is kinda mean on the Cake Boss compared to Duff, but sometimes it’s pretty hilarious since they are all family. 

And WOW…you are going to be a Bee Keeper before you know it Bulldog!

I like Ace of Cakes better.  There’s a lot of yelling on Cake Boss that I find kind of irritating.  Ace of Cakes also seems to be more about the cakes than the relationships in the bakery.  Cake Boss is about the shouting.

I never saw Ace of Cakes… for some reason with my satellite TV the guide and the actual broadcast never matched up, so it kept being car shows of various types when Ace of Cakes was SUPPOSED to be on. 😉 I don’t like Cake Boss that much, though; there is a lot of shouting and it stresses me out! I prefer Amazing Wedding Cakes… much less drama.

I like them both. I like Cake Boss, because you see more of the icing of the cakes and the actual construction. It always fascinates me when they do it, dirty Ice and all. I love Duff though on Ace of Cakes. I just think the show is mostly filled with him doing some crazy project to make something breath fire or spin around. Also, I don’t think Buddy is mean. I think he’s Italian and runs a bakery filled with his family! I would shoot myself!

I think the reason I like CB better is that you see more "real" cakes. I loved the cakes he did for Brides. Did anybody ever seen them in the magazine? I never knew I liked piping!

I love cake boss!  Did you see how well he handled the bridezilla when she put icing all over her cake the day before her wedding?  that took major self-restraint not to dump the cake on top of her.  I thought that cake was beautiful, and the one he did for her in the end was amazing as well.

I agree that Cake Boss is a little more about the shouting but they show more detail than most of the other shows. We checked out a venue on Saturday and were told that all of their cakes (that are included in the package) are made by the Cake Boss which I thought was pretty cool. Their cakes are so pretty!

I like that skinny laid-back guy on Ace of Cakes, what is his name?  He makes me like that show. 

I think there’s lots of yelling on Cake Boss but pp is right – they’re family and they’re loud.  Done. 

I think Amazing Wedding Cakes is good too but the woman with her sugared glass balls kills me every time.  Shut up about your glass balls already.  🙂

I agree with the Bees that Duff and his team make more creative and spectacular cake but I love the relationships on Cake Boss.  Cake wise I like Duff’s cake more.

Buddy and fam are very Italian (reminds me of the Italian family owned bakery in my city) and I love the Jersey accents.  I loved when the mom flipped out on him for making the bachlorette party cake.

I haven’t seen Ace of Cakes (but I’ll be sure to check it out!). I like Cake Boss, though, especially the Italian-ness of it all.  Sure, Buddy is a little mean, but wouldn’t you expect that from a show with "Boss" in the title?

I can take Cake Boss in small doses. I tend to dislike shows where Italian Americans screaming at each other and generally being cuckoo, and there’s a lot of that on that show.

One thing I do like is that unlike a lot of other wedding cake shows, they do tend to work with cake as their main medium. A lot of these super expensive wedding cakes are less cake than pipe, wood, etc. that they’ve molded the cake on to!

I love Duff and the atmosphere he has in his Bakery.  I think their sculpted cakes are nicer at Charm City Cakes, too.  The bridal cakes they did on Cake Boss for Bride magazine were beautiful, though. 

Before I met my FI my mom told me she sent an email to Duff that said she wanted him to date her daughter
