Mark your calendars for Monday Jan 16, 2017 at 9:30pm. Cinnabean Cakes is a contestant on the series SUGAR SHOWDOWN.
SUGAR SHOWDOWN is a fun and intense competition series where three expert bakers compete in a challenge to make their best dessert incorporating one mystery ingredient. Three distinguished judges eliminate one competitor. The remaining two must make creations based on a theme, that also contain a mystery ingredient. One baker will be crowned the champion, winning bragging rights and $10,000.
Yup, somehow I was chosen to partake in the madness! Obviously, I cannot give away any details, but it was a great experience. I challenged myself in ways I didn’t think possible. Each round is timed, and when they say you only have 45 minutes to conceptualize, bake and decorate a cake – they AREN’T joking. Talk about stress!!!
One highlight of the episode that I will share, is working with my “assistant”. Each baker is allowed to work with an assistant, and I worked with my mom. She’s camera shy, and was hesitant at first, but I convinced her. It was a wonderfully unforgettable experience. Thank you mom.
My episode airs Monday Jan 16, 2017 at 9:30pm on Food Network Canada. If you miss it, you will be able to watch it here after it airs.
