Okay, unpopular opinion. This new Netflix show, "Nailed It". It makes me really really sad, and a little angry. I cant watch it.... it gives me anxiety.
The whole point of the show seems to be to set willing mules up for a fall. To indulge in a predictable and cruel laugh. What's next, having unskilled, unexperienced people wire houses and fix cars??
I've had enough folks copy my Cake Art to have inspired more than a few a Cakewrecks and Nailed It's. And each one, I'm happy to see they TRIED. Like, knew they weren't gonna be able to, but tried anyhow, in the face of failure.
I respect that. Beginners are the lifeblood of any creative pursuit, and I love to see their work. I can't help but feel this sort of TV discourages beginners by sending the message that novice offerings are laughable.
Not so. Please, make that cake. Do your best. HAVE FUN. Repeat
In the spirit of such, here is a pic of one of my early sad cakes, along with my most famous, the flying Pegacorn Mama and Baby.
I invite you to add your own novice cakes in the comments in solidarity, to show novice cakers we were ALL once beginners
And, a link to my article, "Cake and the 10,000hr Rule" http://www.art2eatcakes.com/art2-…/cake-and-the-10000hr-rule
I encourage you, keep caking. The most wonderful thing about our art is that you can easily eliminate (eat) learning pieces and start again!!
