I love cooking shows, especially ones I can learn from. And I enjoy shows like Unique Sweets because it makes me want to visit these wonderful bakeries and cafes all over the country. But I have to be careful. This show has been running since 2011, and Cooking Channel broadcasts all the old episodes without discretion. So, as very often happens, when I look up a fantastic bakery from "Unique Sweets," one that's doing amazing things with ice cream or cookie dough, hello, it's out of business and has been so for years. Also, I know they're probably prompted to go over the top by the directors, but the talking heads here can get extremely annoying, especially Zac Young, who never met a hyperbole he didn't like (which is probably why he's currently ubiquitous on Cooking Channel/Food Network). I also have a sneaking suspicion that the talking heads are given a script with the recipes and descriptions of the desserts, but they've never gone anywhere near the sweets they gush over. (I get the same feeling about "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," which should be retitled "The Best Thing I Never Ate But Which Sound Great, Which Camera Am I On?") The show seems to be canceled now, but I wish the each episode had lingered on one or two bakeries in a single city and showcased the owners/chefs and not the silly who-the-heck-are-you talking heads with empty bonafides ("Sultan of Soft Serve," "Prince of Pastry," or "Food Network Star Winner").
