Well, we made it back in one piece! What a wild ride that was! My awesome team and I just got back from filming our episode of TLC's Ultimate Cake Off show.
I have to admit that the whole experience was more involved and harder than I expected. From planning and preparing, to the actual contest itself, it was all consuming for a while. But we made it through, and it was an experience I will never forget. I am not allowed to say anything about our episode until it airs on March 8 at 10 PM eastern. I promise you it will be a great show, so be sure to tune it.
Here are a few behind the scenes pics from our trip that I can share with you now:
Thawing the cakes in our hotel room the night before the show.
It rained the whole time we were in LA and was rather chilly. Very unusual weather for that area. It was very humid in our hotel room the whole time we were there. You can see how much condensation we had on the inside of our room window. Later on I can share with you how this had an impact on our contest day.
Me, my wonderful Wendy, and Becky discussing last minute strategy right before we started.
My incredible team! Wendy, Adele and Becky. There is no possible way I could have pulled this off without them. This was truly a team effort. I hope that this season they feature the assistants more and give them proper credit for all they do.
We were SO happy to be done! It was a wild ride for sure. And look at how dirty we are! Yes, our pants too. There was some serious floor to leg contact going on for sure! You gotta do what you gotta do!
I was so tired at the end of the day, the girls had to wheel me up to the hotel room on a baggage cart.
Be sure to tune in on March 8th at 10PM eastern on TLC. It will be a very entertaining episode for sure!
After it airs I can post more pictures and fill you in on all the juicy details!
Now that I am back to my real life, I am working full force on getting the sheet cake DVD ready for sale within the next few weeks. We hope to launch the new website at the same time too.
Thank you all for your patience, support and encouragement during my many adventures. You guys are the best! Now I am off to take down my Christmas tree.... yes, it really is still up. :)
