The video is of Duff and Mary Alice. You have until Feburary 10, 2009 to submit your video. If you win, your video will be on the Youtube Foodnetwork Channel.

Not sure if there is a prize associated with it.

Yup, video yourself making a cake, or at least the progress of the cake. You don't have to actually be IN the video. At least, that's what the info next to the video says...

I'm totally in! Even though there's no prize listed, other than having your video featured on the Food Network channel on YouTube... Maybe you get a surprise visit from Duff and Mary Alice! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Probably not, but I can dream... icon_lol.gif

Thanks kansaswolf. I figured with all the challenges that go on here..would be great for someone we knew to win.

Hopefully everyone can stop reading the other post and check out the youtube video.

Yeah, I read 22 pages of it, and I'm not going to go back... Not looking, not looking, not looking... icon_wink.gif

Kind of entertaining, but I have other posts to look at! Like VOTING in the TD challenge!

hahahaha...that 'other' post is insane! I had to stop watching it. It was growing faster than I could read it and original statements began getting majorly twisted...no sense in trying to clarify when two or three pages roll by before one can finish typing.

No kidding, in the time it took me to READ the dang thing, it grew from 13 to 22 pages.

Dang. icon_lol.gif

OK I have to ask. What other thread? Is it the one that Buddy is a part of?

I must warn you Parable, if you check out this post, you too may get sucked into the soap opera vortex. icon_razz.gif It's the "Officially Embarassed" post. It's up to 44 pages now.

SYNOPSIS: Customer (OP) was unhappy with her cake by a decorator on this website. Customer claimed the decorator's kitchen was unsanitary & she calls the health department on her, and THEN she posts a complaint on cake central. THEN, the decorator's friend posts several comments in the decorator's defense, making several slurs against the customer. THEN, the customer gets online in her own defense. THEN, the decorator gets online and defends herself...see, Cake Central's first official soap opera!

it was hard to drag myself away from the "Officially embarrassed" post, but I ran outta popcorn icon_eek.gif

I watched the video and I know they said "cake"...do you think cupcakes would be disqualified?

I do much better at cc'd then I do with cakes icon_razz.gif

I figure it's still CAKE, why not? Maybe they'll give you points for originality... icon_biggrin.gif

Okay...I'm Officially Embarassed that I keep reading that post. I read up to 40 and i am DONE!

Anyone that post about the OTHER post will be fined..and I demand a free cake. icon_lol.gif

I would think cupcakes are included. But I have seen post asking Foodnetwork TV/Youtube some questions and they have responded in the comment section of the video.

for those who have flash player /java script issues when trying to view the video, click on the foodnetwork link at the right (after clicking on the link provided by OP) and you can view it there.
