VIDEO: Sandra Lee Frosting Cupcakes With Andrew Cuomo’s Daughter
Posted by Jillian Madison

If you can make it through this entire clip of Sandra Lee frosting cupcakes with one of Andrew Cuomo’s daughters, call me so I can make sure you receive your Nobel Peace Prize:

Be sure to pay special attention at the 3:40 mark, where the kid (who is the granddaughter of Robert Kennedy, mind you) looks at Sandra Lee’s blue frosted cupcake and exclaims, “Oooooooh! That looks JUICY!”

Juicy? How the hell can it be JUICY? It’s frosting, not gossip about the annoying bitch who sits in the cubicle next to you at work.

And just think! New episodes of Semi-Homemade will be returning in the fall. More juicy cupcakes may be in our future!

    Brace yourself for more such heartwarming scenes, as Andy just announced his candidacy for Governor.

    • Kathy says:

      I came here to see what Jillian would say about this latest development.

    • ratgirlagogo says:

      You’re so right. I’m in Queens and I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I guess it all depends on the press – if they decide to turn against him, does Sandy ever provide a lot of ammunition. The Kwanzaa Cake video alone would seem to me to be a complete career killer, but we shall see.

      • @ratgirlagogo – have you ever had Grimaldi’s pizza? My friend is BEGGING me to take him there because he saw it on the Food Network, but it’s so out of the way for me. How is it?

      • ratgirlagogo says:

        I haven’t eaten at Grimaldi’s for a couple of years -I remember that the pizza was good, but I can’t deal with the 90 minute waits there.

  2. Jadaris says:

    Give the kid a show. Hell, she probably could take over Sandra’s spot.

    Wait a minute. Sandra actually made something! She didn’t just go to the store and buy unfrosted cupcakes. Maybe the kid really will give her some competition.

  3. LaLa says:

    Other than the flower candy decoration, what makes these ‘garden’ cupcakes?

    And I am very afraid that she is teaching the next generation to add “AIG-STRACK-T” to store-baought frosting…

  4. Mark says:

    I want to know how the hell FN deems keeping her fake ass attitude on the air?! I really did give her a chance, I cooked the crap… and I am being honest, none were very good. Would she EVER make it on the Next Food Network Star?! So they knock off Emeril (though you had to have a chefs pantry for all of his ingredients)and Mario, who could really cook. Now most are $10 this and ‘fast’ that.

    I have read the Cooking Channel will be more like the old FN style, more actual cooking/how to shows (I will hold my breath). The more ‘entertainment’ shows are to remain on FN… and that would definitely include Sandra, maybe as a comedy.

    And THANK GOD I can get rid of the F’n cake challenge shows that clog up weekend programming. If Kerry Vincent shows up on the Cooking Channel I swear I will blow a hole right through the TV… I RUN to the TV to change the channel the minute I get this feeling…”There is a Kerry show coming on soon…”.

    I am ready to change my Cable start-up channel!!!

    • Jenny says:

      I so agree – I’m definitely over the whole “cook for a buck in thirty seconds” mind set of the majority of the shows. I want shows that show me the RIGHT way to do things, and then let me decide if I can’t handle an hour of cooking so order a pizza. It’s fine that they have a few on the subject, I get it, working moms need easy recipes, yadda yadda, but what about us foodies who want to cook a 3 hour boef bourginnon with hand made brioches on the side?

  5. Gypsy says:

    Why is it that virtually every episode of “Semi-Homemade” I’ve seen has involved adding food coloring and flavored extract to store-bought frosting??

    • fxtech says:

      You must not have read the dis-claimer at he beginning of the episode… Sandra lee “The Semi-Whore” is for the foodie challenged!

  6. GreenJeans says:

    OMG…where to start. The pepto pink set, the lace cuffs, the tiara, the smarmy “what do we always do sweetheart?” I can only imagine the parties she will throw if she ever sets foot in the governor’s mansion. She will have the head chef in tears or screaming in horror.

    • SaraCVT says:

      I kept thinking through the whole thing (where is my Nobel Peace Prize, by the way?) that those lace cuffs were a recipe for diaster–not Sandra’s only one, unfortunately…

  7. ADITL1979 says:

    20 seconds…then I had to turn it off. I tried, I really tried, but the pink was melting my glasses.

    • cloverleaf says:

      Me, too. Just can’t watch it. “Vanilla ones and chocolate ones.” That was all I had to hear to turn it off.

      • IGotGloria! says:

        omg I CRINGED when she said that. And I cringed again when they were adding all the extracts. And again, and again, and again…

  8. Deidre says:

    I hope they are making these for a different girl, because she definitely called the little one by a different name in the beginning and at the end

    • SaraCVT says:

      I thought that was just me! Wasn’t she “Mariah” at the beginning and “Michaelah” at the end?

      • Kelley says:

        Micaela es Mariah’s twin sister, she explained it at some point (where’s my prize for watching the entire thing Jill? LOL?

        When that girl said the cupcake looked “juicy” I couldn’t stop laughing! SL is comedy!

  9. alexis says:

    I’m going to hell for picking on a kid, but is she mildly retarded or something? It was like watching horrible acting.

    • BOO says:

      No, you are not going to hell. Hell is watching FoodNetwork!

    • SaraCVT says:

      I just thought she wasn’t very smart. But when Aunt Sandy asked her, “If this is your recipe, how come I’m doing all the work?”, I actually said out loud, “Because she’s smarter than you.” Not that that’s really difficult to achieve.

  10. Maggie says:

    Anyone notice how in the beginning she calls the girl “Mariah” and at the end says “Mikayla” ? I don’t know too much about that family, but I’d assume the party is for the juicy-cupcake-girl since she is wearing a tiara and shit……. way to go, Sandrunk !

    • BOO says:

      Yes! I did hear that! I bet she got confused, with her having a twin sister.

    • oh_come_on says:

      Mariah and Cara are the twins (14), younger sister is Michaela (12). Imagine Aunt Sandy has your step-mom. Keep it simple, keep it sweet, keep me from slapping her fake-happy face off!

      • Structive says:

        Sandy mentions that Mariah is one of the “older” twins at the beginning of the video, and I think that Cara is the younger sister. Also I cannot believe she is freaking 14 years old. I really hope this video is years old, because there is no excuse for a 14 year old to be that dumb.

  11. Ferd Berfle says:

    From the NY Post story about Andy’s gubernatorial run: “Cuomo, the father of three teenage girls with a penchant for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, vintage muscle cars and striped bass fishing, has been dating Food Network star Sandra Lee for several years.”

    I’m assuming Sandy doesn’t know how to cook those striped bass without CheezWhiz and taco seasoning mix.

    • Tatiana says:

      In an interview from a few months ago, Ant Sandy claims Andy’s favorite dish is some “lasagna” slop made from cottage cheese and tomato soup. What a slap to his Cuomo heritage.

    • LaLa says:

      Yuck – striped bass with CheezWhiz and taco seasoning… sounds like an Aunt Sandy special!

    • stoup says:

      The judges on Chopped would NOT be happy about putting cheese on seafood. Especially Scott Conant – he really hates that, and red onions, and citrus, and veins left in shrimp, and undercooked goat, and…geez, who does he think he is, a chef or something???

      • SaraCVT says:

        He HATES cheese on seafood, cheese next to seafood, cheese in the same room as seafood. It’s getting sort of ridiculous.

  12. Bunnee says:

    And the NY Times called her a chef.

  13. Jennifer says:

    the next time i frost cupcakes, I’ll be sure to wear long flowing sleeves and a crown on my head.. oh and maybe those sweatpants that say “juicy” on the butt too! thanks aunt sandy!

    • Gypsy says:

      Always a great idea, when using sticky frosting and staining food coloring, to wear long flowing sleeves that can easily (and almost unavoidably) get all dirtied up.

    • Ray says:

      I recently found out that a woman in my high school graduating class came up with all that “Juicy” clothing. Made a mint off it. Never understood it, myself.

      Be that as it may and getting back on track here, I was trying to figure out why the kid would use that particular word in describing the cupcakes. I figured there was a new slang meaning for the word which I, old guy that I am, was not catching on to. I found this definition in the Urban Dictionary: Juicy — Pleasurable to the senses. Enjoyable in an especially gratifying, satisfying way.

      So, maybe that’s what the kid meant in using that word. Who knows. Oh, kids these days. So wacky.

      • Fallen says:

        Hell, I just turned 18 a month ago and I didn’t even know that was slang for “enjoyable in a satisfying way”. Does that make me old?

      • Sunburnt says:

        I’m 16 and I didn’t know ‘juicy’ meant anything other than something sexual that a little girl shouldn’t be saying about a cupcake.

      • KristenS says:

        The Juicy Couture woman is also married to (living with?) John Taylor from Duran Duran. Lucky bitch!

        As to Aunt Sandy, she’ll be joining a proud tradition of alcoholic political wives, so she’s got that going for her. Can’t wait to see pics of the decor at her parties!

  14. Bruiser78 says:

    Loved the episode of Barefoot Contessa yesterday when Ina said “People that talk about ‘tablescapes’ just drive me nuts…” I about fell out of my chair.

    • dennylou says:

      Yes, you know EXACTLY whom she is talking about! I did a spit take on that one too. LOL!!!

    • IGotGloria! says:

      Ina said that?!?! Daaang I wish I saw that! She’s the one that’s always having a friend over for lunch…and he always just happens to bring a camera to take pics of the food/centerpiece “for the website”

    • Kathy says:

      Wish I would have seen that!

    • Kristen says:

      I saw that too and cracked up. Annoying as she is, at least Ina Garten is legit and makes things people want to eat. And even though she uses the most expensive of everything, she is about simplicity in decorating…not, ya know, pink lace and tiaras.

  15. Fallen says:

    Since when does “blue” make you think of “almond”? And a cupcake looking “juicy”? I honestly think that this kid is a little.. erm… slow. That, or Drunky is rubbing off on her.

    • Mike C says:

      Well… The girl is just saying something completely random about the food, which is what the FN hosts do. She was just playing the game. Not to say she is or is not slow, just that she is no slower than FN hosts.

  16. DowntownJohnny says:

    I find it very interesting that the Attorney General is dating a woman who’s ex-husband was fired as president & CEO of a homebuilding company for illegally back-dating his stock options.

    And her first cookbook was considered a best seller because her ex-husband’s company purchased thousands of copies in bulk to be distributed by sales counselors to potential home buyers.

    Plus her show is awful.

  17. Gregg says:

    It must be Aunt Drunky’s telekinetic stupidity powers at work. Why else would an otherwise normal kid describe a cupcake as being “juicy?”

  18. Emily says:

    I believe in always challenging yourself, so it was a personal challenge to me to sit through this entire clip. Not only did I sit through it, I sat through this damned thing without gouging out my eyes and shoving a screwdriver through my eardrums. Jillian – when you submit my name for the Nobel Peace Prize, please make sure that they engrave the medal with the phrase “Thank you SAAndra Lee for being a drunken whore and bitch.”

  19. Zach says:

    I don’t see a problem here.

  20. Jill (not Jillian) says:

    What was the point of swirling the icing on real fancy-like if they were going to pile on the sprinkles and various decorations?

    “Oh, so just a little bit of red mixed in makes it pink!” Like she didn’t know this already.

  21. froglegs says:

    ……………….and then build in your centerrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  22. chicken feets says:

    I sat through the entire thing too. Then again, I also had the nerve to taste a real pickled chicken foot. So, please submit my name for the Nobel Peace Prize. Thank you and good day :)n Oh, and what’s with the tiara?

  23. Jp says:

    I watched it for about 15 seconds and wanted to smash my head into the wall. :/

  24. PirateSquid says:

    This episode reminded me that having a baker for a mother makes one biased about cupcakes :| And I hope to never have the displeasure of tasting a “juicy” cupcake. I’ve had my fair share of dry, moist, and spongey, so let’s keep it that way.

  25. cowpoke says:

    The kid sounded like she got into the adult cocktails instead of the kiddie ones. Looks like old Sandy is trying real hard to get in good with Cuomos daughters. He lost my vote. He has to be a dirtbag to be with this moron. Her ex-husband was a total slime. I read somewhere that one of her past assistants said “she’d burn babies to to be famous”.That sounds about right. I think old Sandy has visions of being in the White House someday and will use anything and anyone to get there. I picture her in the Governors mansion screaming orders at the staff, drunk off her ass and making a complete fool of herself. You know, like she does everyday on FN.

  26. Lena says:

    The “juicy” part always cracked me up.

  27. trentsketch says:

    What gives? Miss Stephanie was denied sprinkles all the way back in season one and Little Miss Cuomo gets bowls and bowls of them? I guess rich kids are the only ones that matter to Aunt Sandy the Golddigger.

  28. BCA says:

    My eyes are burning from looking at all that pink.

  29. Scoobie-Doobie-Doo says:

    You know, with Andy announcing his candidacy, he’s subject to some tight criteria — and the press has to be “fair & equal” whenever they feature a candidate. My point is that since Aunt Sandy is knocking boots with him and everyone knows it, maybe FN will be pressured to show less of Aunt Sandy since none of the other folks running have life partners with their own TV shows.

    Tell me that’s not great!

    • cowpoke says:

      That’s an interesting point. I think they’ll play up the poor and terrible childhood she had. I hate to admit this, but I did read her stupid book. It has alot of missing pieces. How does one sell a 12 year old car and get $25,000 to start up a business. She seems to always come up with money when she needs it. She even dedicated the book to Cuomo and his daughters. So much for Grandma Lorraine. There are many interesting insights to this wacko in that book. I think she learned from a very young age how to get what she wanted and will do anything to get it. Anything except educating herself. She dropped out of college and cooking school.She is pure evil.

  30. Spatuler says:

    Well I made it through the entire clip! Sure I clicked ‘play’ and left the house to workout for an hour, but you didn’t say we had to be infront of the computer the entire time. Technicalities. Where’s my Nobel Peace Prize damnit?!

  31. Briana says:

    I feel sorry for Andrew Cuomo’s ex-wife knowing that Aunt Sandy has anything to do with her children! On a sidenote, I may have trouble sleeping after listening to the weird background music and Ms. Cocktail Time whispering *allllriiiiight* once those juicy cupcakes were frosted.

    • Kristen says:

      That’s what I thought about too. Where is that girl’s mom and what does she think of some hack shoveling artificially colored, preservative-laden frosting into her daughter’s mouth all while calling her sweetheart in that syrupy voice?

      Whoa. Just reading that sentence I typed gave me diabetes.

      • Fallen says:

        Most moms that don’t really know much about food don’t exactly care about the preservatives in frosting. That’s what I had been eating my entire life until I was around 14 and made buttercream frosting for the first time.. sweet, sweet buttercream.

      • Daria says:

        It isn’t just all the preservatives that make canned frosting scary, it is the trans fats that are present in it. We should be eating zero trans fats if at all possible. Another one of Sandy’s favorites, Cool Whip, also contains trans fats. The really sad thing is that making frosting isn’t even hard or time consuming.

  32. kytten says:

    That was the most painful thing i have watched in a long time. Ugh. The pink was horrible, the little girl was so vacant eyed like she’d been sipping from Sandrunk’s martini glass, Sandrunk herself looked like she could barely hold in her loathing for the pipsqueak, her horrible fake smiles and her sugary sweet “Now hold this with both hands like we always do, sweetie” made me want to vomit, and those cupcakes were disgusting looking, not to mention they really didn’t look like she had made them. The whole thing just turned my stomach. Why are you dressed up like a little princess to ice some cupcakes? Really? Ugh.

  33. Freezezzy says:

    This video would have been so funny if Mariah had tried mixing up the colors. Just imagine it! Red blueberry, blue mint, green lemon, yellow raspberry. OMG! Sandra’s head would probably explode. Or maybe she’d just faint. Whatever happened, it’d probably be fun to watch.

  34. Jenn says:

    God, she can’t even mix the color into the frosting properly… But seriously though, do you really need to use all that food dye? There are so many healthier alternatives for adding color to frosting..

    • GreenJeans says:

      Yeah, did you see the white swirls in the blue frosting? As for healthy alternatives…Ms. Semi Home Made is not going to be leaching beets or parsley for color.

  35. Ferd Berfle says:

    Aunt Drunky, quoted in the Ny Daily News:

    “I am going to do whatever Andrew needs,” she said. “Anything he asks. We’re partners that way. Any role I may or may not have, it’s going to be up to him. …You just support that. It’s his world. I just want to be a good partner to him in it.”

  36. leyankee says:

    “If this is your recipe, why am I doing all the work?” What work has Aunt Sandy really done? Unscrewed the tops off of some bottles of vodka and vanilla extract? Please.

  37. estermax says:

    All that pink hurt my eyes.

  38. Kristen says:

    I stumbled on this video yesterday while reading an article about her and Andrew Cuomo. That time I made it to the 18 second mark. Now having watched it, I feel sorry for both the cameraman (who had to stand in the midst of all that pink crap for Lord knows how long) and that cute little girl who was probably told to say all that stuff. I will point out that she might have said “It looks juicy” because they were just talking about using blueberry extract instead of almond (yeah and every kid’s going to go apeshit over ALMOND-flavored things…).

  39. Beans says:

    OT: Duff has a new line of crap at Michael’s Craft Stores. I tried posting it in the proper thread but it kept saying the Duff section was closed.

  40. HeWhoseNameMustNotBeSpoken says:

    Wanna get really drunk?? The play the Food Network “JUST” Game with the FN Host of your choice.
    Here’s how it works…sit down in front of the tele with a bottle of tequila and some good friends…next, pick a host to watch of your choosing (Pauler, T-FLO, Emeril, Giada, Ray Ray) and every time they use the word “just” during the next 30 minutes you all have to slam a shot…trust me, you’ll all be hammered within the first 10 minutes…could “just” possibly be the most overused word in existence for cooks??

  41. Motzi Greps says:

    Sandra Lee is going to be my first lady! Waaaaaaaaaaaa!

  42. Manggy says:

    To her credit, even Sandra seemed to be flummoxed by the “juicy” comment. When Mariah said, “That looks JUICY!” She replies, “Don’t they look… great?” with a half-second to think (you could tell that her first instinct was to echo whatever Mariah said about the cupcake). Even she thinks that it is a strange thing to say about a cupcake.

  43. Teague says:

    I’m going to have to look in this whole tea party thing now.

  44. Aubie says:

    Geez, watching that clip made me want to drink some lemon extract! Isn’t it 85 proof, anyway? Auntie Sandi would know.

  45. buffalowing says:

    i saw this on TV once. without warning, my head suddenly exploded.

  46. cityboy1986 says:

    I actually watched this all the way, since Aunt Sandy always provides a bit of comedy. Most of this was just painful, though. It did have its moments such as the aforementioned “juicy” and Mariah stating, “we’ll just snip it right there.” Sandy’s response: “With the scissors.”

  47. spoonula says:

    What’s so unusual about cupcake’s being juicy? I once had some water that was dry and marshmellow’s that were crunchy.

  48. Stephen says:

    Nauseating! That pink set made my eyes hurt, although it may be a subliminal message to get out your bottle of Pepto Bismal before watching the rest of the episode. The kid sounded like she had been scripted to death. BRRRR. Get chills from it.
    Doesn’t Andrew Cuomo realize that a girlfriend/spouse who is a boozehound is going to be a liability to his political career? I wonder if Sandy is going to do the tablescapes for her own wedding? Ooh, I smell a special. Semi-Homemade Wedding. Maybe she’ll do one of her own fabulous cakes for the wedding.
    Perhaps Sandy needs a nice long visit to Betty Ford before the wedding.

    • SaraCVT says:

      I know! The Wedding Cake! She loved it so much and said it looked professional, think Andrew’ll actually let her use it for their wedding?

  49. Steve says:

    Sandy mentions that Mariah is one of the “older” twins at the beginning of the video, and I think that Cara is the younger sister. Also I cannot believe she is freaking 14 years old. I really hope this video is years old, because there is no excuse for a 14 year old to be that dumb.

  50. Hayley says:

    The juicy thing never ceases to make me l-o-l

  51. art_vandelay says:

    Am I the only person who gets totally annoyed with her pouring extract/liquids into caps to measure them out? Drives me nuts.

    I’m willing to overlook a lot of her faults, simply because you kind of have to respect someone who boozes as much as she does that can hold down a well-paying job, pick up a 2nd show and bang a state attorney general.

  52. Jules says:

    Nothing like ripping a 12 year old, people

  53. cklein says:

    What is wrong with that kid??

  54. BoobyFlaysMOOBs says:

    me thinks that kid takes after Rosemary Kennedy. but she has it more together than SL. How is that garden cupcakes?
