Let me start by telling you that I entered a cake in the AZ State Fair...... This is my first year entering the fair, actually it is my first time entering any kind of contest.......My cake won best of show in it's division...... I have received much recognition for my cake....e mail's and PM's from fellow CC members even from at least one of the judges who chose my cake. It has all been wonderful and much appreciated especially coming from all of you. Then last friday a co worked called me to tell me that they saw a picture of my fair cake on a local news website.... apperantly a total stranged saw my cake at the fair and liked it so much that she decided to post a picture of it in the section where people can post pictures of Arizona events!!!! It was very flattering that a stranger thought that much of my work!!!!! Ok Here comes the SCARY part............. I received a call last night from the marketing department for the AZ State Fair and they want to include me in news segment on that same news station! I think it's a piece on some of the winners...... Their will be others in the peice but none the less I'M SCARED S@#TLESS.......I don't even ever let anyone take my picture let alone video tape me......My family thinks I have to do it...........I would eventually like to make a business out of decorating and it might help, but I'm afraid i'm going to make an A@@ out of myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What would you do????????????? Please Advise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First of all - congratulations. YES, you must do it. Just jump right in. This is your time to shine. The anticipation and the unknown is the worst part. It is never as bad as you imagined. Good Luck and keep us posted.
I would do it also...don't worry too much, usually those segments are very short anyway, and they should go over what they are going to ask you to prepare you, if not, ask someone what to expect. Relax, you'll do fine.
