Cake Boss Season 3
does a show like Cake Boss keep up its energy and momentum for a third
season? A lot of the appeal has to do with the
of the cakes, and surely thats
going to get old at some point?
who missed the first 2 seasons, Cake Boss follows the life of Bartolo
Valastro and his family in the daily running of Carlos
bakery, New Jersey. While the bakery churns out all kinds of sweet and
delicious treats, the real drawcards are the fantastic and over-the-top
cakes that they make to order. In the past, Buddys
team have made life-size nascars, roulette tables and apple trees for
their clients. And while Buddy is technically
he is surrounded by his sisters, mother and cousins, none of whom are
ever short of an opinion.
3 the team are faced with some of their toughest challenges yet,
including the delicate task of making a proportionately correct
sculpture of Buddys
also a few bombshells let loose this time around, including the shock
retirement of Buddys
mother, a health scare and a
in the oven
of a different variety.
is still there, some episodes fall short of the mark. There are some
scenarios where you feel like Buddy is out of sorts, and isnt
producing his best work. The episode with the giant
(thong for Aussie viewers), in particular, feels flat. And yes, that was
a bad pun.
criticise season 3 for a lack of content- it features 24 episodes, with
enough variety for you to forgive the absence of any special features
and the odd flat spot.
closes with a massive three-part Italian special, in which Buddy
revisits his homeland and swaps trade secrets with the local bakers. The
formula gets a welcome shake-up here, as Buddy is forced to work in some
unfamiliar environments and improvise to get the job done.
one family that doesnt
need an intercom system- they can shout at each other up the stairs all
day, and never seem to get tired of it. Cake Boss, season 3 has all the
dramas, tantrums and crises weve
come to expect and enjoy. Despite the odd miscue, theres
enough variety to warrant a look from fans of the series.
