Cake Wars: Christmas on Food Network

Happy Friday! Earlier this spring, I auditioned to be a guest judge for Food Network and got to be a part of Cake Wars: Christmas which we filmed back in May. If you've seen Cake Wars, it's the same idea but with an extra mega dose of Christmas added in. They combine groups of food artists—bakers, sugar artists, and food sculptors—in teams to come up with these fantastical themed cakes. I am a die hard competition show lover, so I had a blast getting to see how these shows come together by judging on an episode (not to mention I got to eat A LOT of cake, too). I loved my co-judges Sherry Yard and Charles Phoenix and cutie host, Jonathan Bennett (remember him from Mean Girls?).

Stay tuned for my Food Network debut on Monday night for Episode 3 where I'll be guest judging at 9/8c and other times listed here!

Hope you guys have a great weekend! (And how is it almost Thanksgiving already?!?)

  7. I like watching the Halloween & Christmas Cake Wars, but I do
    not like the one judge Sherry Yard, because I feel Sherry is jealous of the contestants. I doubt she can make neat cake sculptures on Cake Wars. She enjoys insulting the contestants.
