Hats off to all of you who have been in the cake challenges - I have no idea how you did it! The local news came out to interview me and filmed me while I working on a cake. I know I'm going to look like a dork! And anyone watching will think I have no idea how to decorate a cake! It's the toybox cake in my photos. I had less than 24 hours notice they were coming, so I really wasn't ready. And there were certain specific things they wanted to see so I had to work out of order from how I normally do things. And do not even ask me what I said - they were interviewing me while I was working and I really couldn't concentrate on both. Finishing the cake after they left seemed like a snap. I can't imagine having to do an entire cake while they were filming you!
I haven't been filmed making a cake but I have done demos -- and just like a demonstration speech -- I just can't talk and work with sugar at the same time!
Plus what if you had to carry all your stuff to a different location to do it. ha!
But I know you did GREAT!!
Congratulations on your tv gig! I am sure it is very distracting to have the camera there and people asking questions while you work. Your cake looks great.
I just recently did a Cake Challenge. The camera and producer were easily blocked out, so much so that I ran into the camera guy standing behind me a couple of times. I think it's different at Challenge because there's SOOOO much work to do and you have to concentrate so much on what you're doing just to finish. I don't know if I'll look like a dork, the episode hasn't aired yet.
I think it would be much harder to do an interview, because you have to focus on what you're doing and what you're saying and what you're demonstrating.
That is so true K8! At least I was in my own kitchen. But then again, that also meant I had to clean the whole house before they got there!
FEIwannabe - I'm worried enough about how bad a 90 second news spot is going to be! You must be on pins and needles waiting to see how they edit your episode!
