The "Cake Wars" episodes are interesting to watch, but
not quite laid out for the safety conditions of it's contestants on the show, and the different teams competing. There are tremendous amount of detailed work from all of the different contenders that goes into their displays, and it is quite awe inspiring to watch this on TV. On the other hand, it can get overwhelming to watch because sometimes a contestant can get badly injured, forcing the injured to stay in the game. Nevertheless, the teams are pressured into building the best displays to the best of their abilities to come out on top. I think that when the judges put a certain time period on the teams to get their displays finished is a bad idea. I also think safety is key, and more time is needed for the teams to finish their displays without anyone getting hurt. The teams feel rushed, and more often, the contestants will push hard enough to help get a themed display done, that the're not paying attention to safety.
