Cake Boss: Mount Rushmore & Marissa's Cake

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Was it just me or was this a week where it really would have been better to have two episodes? I thought that this episode was pretty boring... we have Marissa doing a side project for the Lisas while Buddy wants to prove that he can sculpt faces just like Ralph and some of the others. Oh, and a fifteen-second shot of Mary carrying stuff back to the bakery. Yep, that's this episode in a nutshell. :-/

The Cake Boss "Presidents, Peanut Butter & Poppin-in" (S05E08): A guy whose grandfather was involved in the creation of Mount Rushmore comes in, and Buddy is thrilled to work on this cake. Ralph is worried about how exact everything needs to be, as the faces are much larger than the normal ones he does. Buddy wants to sculpt Lincoln, which will be a challenge for him, as he usually does cartoon-type pieces. He accidentally rips off the nose, but finishes in about seven hours. After the faces are in place, they work on the mountain, using many layers to make it look lifelike. [those little rocks of modeling chocolate looked so real!]
Marissa is supposed to make a chocolate-peanut-butter cake for SisterLisa, just like the one she did on The Next Great Baker finale, but she has trouble when some of the guys act like the bakery doesn't have small measuring implements. Everyone likes it, so Buddy asks her to make more of them to sell in the store. [cool.]

The episode ends with Mary walking back into the bakery, "to help." [...yeah... I like this show for the cake, not the drama...]
