Need an idea for a practice Food Network Cake

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So, I've been contact by food network for season 8 challenges, sent them my paperwork, cake pics and audition tape. So far, so good.

I'd like to do a trial cake- 3ft tall in 8 hours, but I can't decide on a theme/idea. Would my fellow CC'ers mind planting a few seeds in my brain? (well, my virtual brain, anyhow!)

Thanks in advance!

How exciting!! I would definitely do something you are not really comfortable doing!! Moving parts etc! They always seem to throw a curve in there. And of course clean lines!! lol do a huge wedding cake with something you have never done before.

I thought about a wedding cake, but they usually go with more of a birthday/event theme.... I just need a few themes/ideas to get me started. It doesn' even have to be an idea for the cake, just something to get me started..... I know one show was Dr Suess.....but obviously I wouldn't want to do that....anyone....bueller, bueller.......bueller...

Oh how exciting! Wow!

I would just start throwing stuff together you've never done before. Make it spin, make it light up...sculpt something 3D...make gumpaste pieces...do something in chocolate....do something in pulled sugar....

Maybe you could do a circus theme or carnival theme...that would be easy to incorporate spinning, lighting up, sculpted, gumpaste, chocolate, and pulled sugar.....

I agree with Kitagrl! And be able to sculpt facial features if you need to. I see a lot of the competitors that really struggle with that! Do you know when the competition will be?

I know it's a little early, but how about an Easter cake?? Lots of ideas there with a bunny, eggs, carrots, etc!!

I agree with the other posts, carving and sculpting will get you major points if done right..
How cool for you, maybe we'll see you on t.v. in the months to come!
Good luck! and keep us updated on what you decide icon_smile.gif

How about a travel theme? Or fourth of July? Winter wonderland? Harry Potter? Dragon baby shower? Oops, that last one is the cake I have to do next weekend! icon_smile.gif

I'd do a cake based on a previous FN theme.
congrats and good luck.
will be great to see a new face on there, rather than the same people over and over.

That's so awesome Jill! Good luck with it! I would say choose one of the new movies - maybe Tangled. They seem to do a lot of Disney movies. You'll have to let us know if you get to be on tv!
