And now I have this book... now I must read this book.
Well... I wasn't as happy with this book as I'd hoped/expected to be. It was good, but...I don't know. It just felt too light. There was some good behind-the-scenes stuff--like what the designers do when they're not designing cakes, what the bakery's like when it's not being filmed, and duties/responsibilities of the production team--but not as much as I was hoping for. There was a lot of history of Duff, his brother/co-executive producer Willie, and Charm City Cakes, but it sometimes felt like the same story was being told over and over.

So, I don't know... there were lots of impressive pictures of cakes, and we get to know some of the designers better, and I finally found out what a writer does on a reality show, but it still.... no pun intended, but it fell flat. It wasn't quite a caketastrophe, but it also wasn't the Ace of behind-the-scenes/backhistory books.

Cherylann I didn't know he had a book out. I love the show. I'm curious to read your review of it.
