If you ask me do I get a thrill from competition? Yes. Do I like to compete? Truthfully, I would much rather be a fan. It’s not that I avoid competition, but it isn’t something I hold as an important part of who I am.
When it comes to dealing with my recipes though, putting on the gloves sounds just fine to me.
It is time to reveal a few of the big ideas I have baking in my oven right now, or shall I say, let me reveal a few ovens I hope to find myself baking in someday soon.
The Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest 2012.
Even though the final rounds of this contest take place a year from now, and I must admit I never use pre-made pillsbury rolls, or crust, or dough – I have been enamored with the Bake-Off since I was a little kid. After further investigation, I am absolutely game for this one, as there are a ton of different products I can use to create a million dollar recipe!
The Jelly Belly $10,000 Cupcake Challenge
The arrival of Spring means one thing to me, the beginning of cupcake season. Jelly Bellys come in the most beautiful colors and flavors, and it seems that with the focus being on the design and not necessarily the taste, this might be the be the perfect opportunity for me to take a dive into the decorating world. $10,000 for a work of culinary art? What’s not to love?
The Real Women of Philadelphia Contest
Camera friendly, not so much, but I guess there is a first time for everything! Getting a chance to meet the queen of “just add a stick of butter” Paula Deen, and also being able to represent the 215, just by videotaping the piecing together of one of my recipes using the best of the best, Philadelphia Cream Cheese? Yes I can! (I just might need a videographer… Sign ups are open!!)
Promise me you guys will be in the bleachers cheering me on?
