Cake (or Cake TV) was a sitcom and How-to television series that originally aired on the KOL's Secret Slumber Party and KEWLopolis lineup on CBS. The show was broadcast from September 16, 2006 to December 9, 2006 in its first run and was broadcast from December 16, 2006 to September 12, 2009 in reruns only. The show was produced by DIC Entertainment in association with Brookwell McNamara Entertainment (Sean McNamara & David Brookwell).

Only 13 episodes of this series were produced; In 2007, when asked about the show, series producer and writer Susie Singer Carter said that the show was in its second season.[1] But although those season two episodes never aired (if it was produced at all), it is assumed that at this point the series has ended its run. On September 19, 2009, Cake was officially removed from the CBS lineup.

Premise[edit]

The show revolves around a teenage girl named Cake, who is very much into fashion and arts and crafts. Cake wishes to follow in the footsteps of her Grandma Crystal, who used to design costumes for a famous rock star. In her spare time, Cake also enjoys Irish dance and playing the bagpipes. She wears a pink t-shirt during Cake TV filming sessions.

Like Cake, her best friend Miracle Ross also has an eye for fashion and art, except she believes in spending money in order to get the perfect gift rather than making it. In "Miracle on Ice", she wore a red t-shirt for the Cake TV filming session in that episode to match Cake's, but for the rest of the series, she wore a lavender t-shirt, then a purple one.

Amy Carson is a small child who lives in their neighborhood who enjoys cracking jokes and pulling pranks. She wears a green t-shirt during Cake TV filming sessions.

Together they are the hosts of "Cake TV", an arts-and-crafts show on public-access television that is taped in Cake's garage. Benjamin Turner, who has no intention of going on camera because of stage fright, is the show's cameraman and director. He wears a blue t-shirt when operating the camera during Cake TV filming sessions.

The garage where Cake TV is produced is filled with Grandma's endless supply of trinkets she used when designing costumes, such as beads, glitter, ribbon, and many other supplies. Cake always has items organized and ready to be grabbed at the studio.

Production[edit]

Cake was taped in Hollywood, California, at Raleigh Studios.

Cake has ended its run on CBS after three years, when the network began the Cookie Jar TV block on September 19, 2009.
