The question on my application was "What are your top 3 ORIGINAL baking/ingredients/decorating tips that demonstrate your baking/cooking knowledge? (Be specific, give us information, and teach us something. This is a chance for you to show us what you've got)."

That could be an original baking tip like a process or sequence that you do that you believe is unique.

It could be an unusual ingredient that you add to a recipe that doesn't normally include itsomething that you've tweaked to your own taste that most people wouldn't think to add or perhaps how to prepare/process an ingredient in a different way for a specific reason.

Or, a decorating tip (perhaps that you don't share with others) like using a unique tool, piece of equipment, method, or "secret" technique that you've discovered to make a process easier or faster.
HOW TO:

That was a tough one. Cooking has been around a LOT longer than any of us. I've had a few accidental techniques that have worked out well, so I listed those. I don't know how original they are. I seriously doubt that I was the first to discover them.

Good luck to all who applied.

Lol...thank you.
I hope they realized that they don't need all the gimmicks and that viewers really just want to see a legitimate competition. I guess I can only speak for myself, but I enjoyed the Challenges before they added all the ridiculous twists...
My two faves are Amazing Wedding Cakes and Fabulous cakes (because they reveal the prices!!!)
Buddy needs to treat the competitors with a little more respect IMO

So, if anyone here gets on the show....don't take any crap! icon_smile.gif

Does everyone that applies get asked to make a video also?
post #97 of 165
I don't think so, they decide from your app & photos if they find you interesting. I highly doubt they ask everyone to do a video. If they did they would have to go through thousands and thousands of videos. It does seem that they are staggering the process so they have time to go through all they like. I am sure they are still processing applications. I know several got their apps in before I did and were asked to make a video before I received my request to submit a video. They create the short time frame so they can deal with a set number of videos at a time. Granted this is all speculation, but it seems like the most efficient way to process the amount of applications I am sure they are receiving.

Oh ok... I sent my app in yesterday and got the email today. Wasn't expecting to hear at all, but after reading this forum post it seems like a lot of videos are out there LOL

I also did a video and was told yesterday that July 11th they will pick their semi-finalists to meet the producers I believe you go to New York and then they choose from there the finalists. My lady (Jessica) said that if we have not been contacted that week then we did not make the simi-finalist cut and they will not contact us.

Good luck to everyone that made the videos!!!

Has anyone heard anything yet? I thought today was the deadline to hear if you made the cut for the producers to check you out. I half expected to see a dozen or so responses of people saying they made the next cut.
