I'm not interested on being on TV (nor do I feel my work is good enough to be), but I thought there is a LOT of talent here on CC, and figured I'd pass the word on.

The creators of Cake Boss (show, not software) want a new competition series. More information here:

Happy caking!

"FROM TLC AND THE CREATORS OF "CAKE BOSS" COMES A NEW BAKING COMPETITION SERIES.

ARE YOU THE NEXT GREAT CAKE ARTIST?

I like the "no culinary experience required" part. icon_smile.gif Sounds to me like this might be a show for those that are more intermediate as opposed to professional.

There are a handful of people on CC that I would recommend, amazing talent here!!

I would HATE someone to videotape me making a cake lol.....they'd be like, what's she doing........is she purposefully powdering her whole shirt with the powdered sugar??? LOL I make SUCH a mess!!

I'll never be good enough to have my own show or to even be on one icon_lol.gif but there are a few members of cc that I, like Tina, would recommend. thumbs_up.gif

That might be a really interesting show. I agree, lots of talent on this board. If I was younger and thought I was talented enough I would definitely go for it. What a wonderful learning opportunity!

Your video is great and your work is beautiful! Good luck to you! Did they contact you for an interview? How does the process work?

Thanks! I found the casting call on TLC late thursday night and I spent 3 1/2 hours filling it out. I sent it in at like 1 in the morning and got a call at 10:30am the next day! They said they liked my cakes and story and wanted me to make a video of me in my shop and gave a list of questions to answer.

It is really strange talking about myself like that, but I guess you have to do it. =-) I know that they are planning on having all 10 cast members picked in the next few weeks.

Thank you all for the support. I really have no idea what personality type they are looking for. All I know is that my family is going through a really rough time right now and we could really use a little hope...

Heck no, not me. I like staying under the radar. Best of luck to those that go for it.

Good luck. Your cakes and interview are great. Your family must be so proud. I think you have it in the bag. You are personable, knowledgeable, creative, and just adorable! Whats not to like?

brea1026, you rock! Your avatar pic is amazing, I can't believe you did all the piping with a baggy. I learn so much on this site. Good luck to you and anyone else who enters!

I would love to have a show one day!

I would love to do it but that part about being gone 4 - 5 weeks starting in September knocks me out. Too many cake orders and I'm a one-woman show with hubby helper.

He's the first one to cross my mind when i read this. thumbs_up.gif There is so much talent here on cc...I'd hate to know that I had to choose just 10.

Good luck Brea - but I think you have it in the bag too! icon_smile.gif You are an amazing talent!!

I agree - it would be hard to pick the others from all of the talent that is on here!

Thank you all so much for the kind words of encouragement!

brea1026, I would definitely watch your show. I just wish those shows would show a little more technique. They always seem to cut away right before the technique is shown. As if the pros don't already know how to do it and one of us newcomers may see how they smooth fondant on a difficult cake and suddenly become their competition. Even the non-cakers watching must get frustrated about "how did they do that".
