cake_architect: You are correct. Thanks. I don't believe that you even needed to adjust the boxes, they automatically adjusted as you kept typing. You could also edit the questions if you cared to delete the portion that didn't apply.

I stand by what I said. There is little room for answering long questions. The one answer questions definitely had enough room.

Please don't make assumptions about what some has or has not done before making your comments.

Insulted,

I didn't assume anything, I simply stated two scenarios about submitting two different ways and what MY experience was including the suggestions made by the casting agent. IF you chose to submit this way or that, doesn't mean that I stated that you did this, that, or both. Chill.

I thought I was the only one waiting "paitently" (not a word I am usually familar with). I submitted my video over a month ago so I had gotten to the point I figured they decided not to pick me. My emails were a little different but basically the same. I ask if it should be public or private and they told me to make it public. I love "reality" shows and would be thrilled if they picked me. Either way I will be watching and cheering on any CC friends.

I got an invitation too, then a phone call to make and send in a video, which because of wedding season I look like bloody hell all the time. I keep hoping for a break long enough to dig for a tube of lipstick, and film myself slapping icing around. I am a little worried about the time it take stem to decide. My past experiences with Amazing Cakes they took so long to decide that it really hurt me time wise on the cakes I had due, and ended up costing me close to a 1000$ in money I had to give back to clients because I knew my cakes were not up to snuff because I was rushed and I felt horrible I had let them down. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE!

Initially, when I read, videos with low energy will not be considered or make the cut or something like that, I thought it meant low grade/grainy footage. As I was reading through all of it again, yesterday, for some reason, that same statement hit me as meaning those with less than interesting personality.

Geeeeeeeeeez...if that's the case, I am so screwed and better start working on next year's footage!

I also got a few emails asking me to apply. I politely declined after last season's shows. Definitely not getting into the back of anybody's delivery truck...

They said that the skill level will be much higher this season, though...

I can certainly see why it's so enticing...you'll get your five minutes, whether or not you win....

please give my regards to the "sisters" whoever IS chosen...

(wouldn't stand for being insulted by them either......btw)

adven68, I couldn't imagine ANYONE insulting you nor sending you "to the box truck baby!". You got some mad skillz!

The lady who called me (Julie) said they had a few more weeks of applications/videos until they closed casting (towards the end of July) and that we would find out everything after that. So I'm guessing we'll all find out at the same time! They're probably just keeping track of videos that stand out to them and after casting closes they'll review everything together and narrow it from there. That's how I'm understanding it after all lol!

I think we'll all be biting our nails until we find out lol! It really does stay in the back of your mind lol icon_rolleyes.gif Just keep in mind what someone posted earlier: Corina didn't get the call until two days before she was supposed to be in New York! So be prepared to stay on the edge of your seat lol

Well that does make sense...thanks for reassuring me Cake_architect.

It really is frustrating not knowing but it's understandable that they have their way of doing things.

I wish it was July already icon_biggrin.gif
