Back to the topic of this post. Does anyone know if only big name cakers were cast for the pilot? I realize this is tv and all, but I am sure there are plenty of undiscovered, just as amazing and talented decorators out there that deserve a shot. Frankly, I would love to see some new blood. I love the decorators showcased time and again on the FN Challenges but curious to see who else is out there too.
My thought was that the reason for CC being involved to help seek out those of us who are just as good--if not better--than the big names we see hear about.
They were trying to find undiscovered "elite" talent, from what I gather, and CC certainly is a great place to start!
But they weren't looking exclusively for the undiscovered artists.
Quote from page 1:
Whether you own a major bakery or
work out of your basement, if you
have the creativity and skills
we want to meet you!
When you are creating a new TV show you want to be sure you are reaching your goal and target audience: their goal being "extreme cakes", they had to be positive they were recruiting people whom they were confident could meet that challenge.
They want the wildest cakes out there - Courtney Clark, the Cake Girls, Bronwen Weber... of course they can pull it off!! Of course they will be asked to be on the show.
And perhaps one of us can prove through photos and a 10 minute video that we are also right for the challenge. Someone like mamacc ??
