As some of you know from my previous post, I was contacted by a producer from Food Network's Challenge, I filled out the Questionnaire,sent more cake pictures, and pictures of myself as they asked. She called me shortly after and told me she loved my story and asked me to make a 2-5 minute audition tape to show a bit about myself. This makes me very nervous because I am only semi-professional and I've NEVER auditioned for anything before. I had posting my first attempt a week or so ago..I modified it by adding a montage of my cakes...starting with the first two I ever made (which I talk about on the tape) and showing a progression of my cakes from that point on.. Thanks for looking and any opinion are welcome ( but please try not to be too meanicon_wink.gifThanks...and wish me luck I need some!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Good job! It really shows your personality (which is what the casting directors look for.). Best of luck!

Great audition tape. Your personality really shines through and your enthusiasm and passion for caking is obvious. After watching your tape, I wanted to hear more of your story, and I bet the casting producers will too! Best of luck to you.

You tape is fabulous! You come across really well and so down to earth. I love the showing of your cakes at the end. Lets them see where you started, and where you're going. Really great presentation. As I said sure to let us know when you'll be on. I would sooooooo love to watch one of our own on challenge!! I'd really have someone worth rooting for!!!!

I stand by what I wrote after seeing your first video. I am sure they can see your enthusiasm through what your say, and showing your progression through your cakes can be no bad thing. Good luck!

Great job. How do you get an opportunity to audition? Did they contact you first? Or does one just make a tape and sent it in? Any info you can share is appreciated (I tried to PM you but for some reason it isn't working -sorry).

Really...thank you so much for the words of encouragement I truly appreciate iticon_smile.gif Honestly, I've been feeling a bit worried lately wondering if my tape is going to be good enough...A lot of new auditions have been posted recently and most of the people have a lot more resources than I do/did and the tapes are SO professional and I'm just hoping and praying that I have a family and I really need a break right now..this truly could change our lives.. and it's an amazing opportunity for me to really grow and's the chance of a lifetime.
