Norman R. Davis is AWESOME

I love watching Food Network Challenges on the Food Network. I even have a favorite competitor. I think he is adorable and extremely talented. I love to cook but I am not a cake decorator by any means. I blame it on being left handed. My favorite cake guy is Norman R. Davis he owns The Sweet Life. He is awesome. I hope he always wins. I just saw a commercial for another cake show on TLC and I saw Norman and heard his voice. I am so excited; I am going to start watching it. I didn’t catch the name of the show though. I am sure I can figure it out because the internet is wonderful.

My favorite judge is Kerry Vincent, she is a British woman who says what she thinks and isn’t afraid to tell you like it is. I guess she is comparable to Judge Judy. Yes Kerry Vincent is the Judge Judy of the food judges. I know on the episode where they were making Kerry’s birthday cake Norman decided to let his partner take the lead and he did wonderful. I think he won.

My old best friend and I used to go to the grocery store on the weekends when we were in high school and buy a cake from the bakery. We would have them write something on it most of the time. Usually nothing that made sense to anyone but us. We were dorks and we actually had made up our own language. It was a normal Friday or Saturday and we decided we wanted cake, fudgecicles and candy so we went to the store and walked over to the bakery. There was a guy working in the bakery. I still think that he was filling in for someone at the bakery because when we asked for our normal personalized cake, he told us to come do it ourselves. That was an ugly ugly cake when we got done with it. It was a lot of fun though. We never saw that guy again so maybe he wasn’t an employee after all and just a customer pretending to work there. It was late for all we know the bakery could have been closed.

I think the cake challenges are so cool. I just don’t think I could ever have the steady hand to do it myself. I love to cook and bake and I make delicious food but decorating it, it looks like a four year old created it. Of course no one says, Hey Sheila that cake is hideous, I hope it tastes a lot better than it looks.

I would love to meet Norman R Davis, he seems like an awesome guy and I would love for him to make me a cake.

Do you enjoy watching cake competitions? Do you have a favorite decorator? Who is it?

  1. You do have a talent for story telling!
    I enjoy watching others do fancy things with food, but my talents are not in the kitchen. Altho I can do a tasty meal over an open fire!
    After reading this I may turn on the food network.
