It’s been a while since posting on this blog. I have had an eventful year, three surgeries in all. One to repair that foot I broke in January 2012 skiing and two more on my right hand to fix carpal tunnel (hazard of the pastry bag) and trigger finger. Everything is healing nicely and looking forward to an uneventful 2014 !!!

Thought I would share with you a couple of cakes from two October Fundraisers in Kemptville.

This first one was for the auction table at The Beth Donovan Hospice 14th Annual Fall Extravaganza. In all they raised $38,000 dollars at this years sold out event.

This second one was for The 2nd Annual North Grenville Spaghetti Fest benefiting The United Way. Held at The North Grenville District High School, this event raised over $2,600.

Happy to support both these great causes!

CTV Morning Live - Ottawa

I recently had the opportunity to do a morning cake show in Ottawa at CTV Morning Live. What a riot! Great bunch of people in front of & behind the camera.

It's an early morning go for sure! Hard for a night-owl like me.

There were 3 cake decorators from the Ottawa area paired with hosts to create a cake based on them. My host was Lianne Laing. She gave me a large list of things about her that I could incorporate into my cake and this is what I came up with.

Each of us had to demo 3 times during the show before the final reveal. Here are some of the videos posted on YouTube.

From start (baking) to finish (TV reveal) under 12 hours ...... WHOA!!!

Here are some candid shots from the studio.
Lianne & myself

The behind the scenes crew. Could not have done it without the team work!!

All the decorators & the cakes with hosts Kurt Stoodley & Lianne Laing

I had a great time. It was lots of fun. Although I think the early morning TV stuff is best left to those who do it on a regular basis!!! HA HA HA

Thanks CTV Ottawa Morning Live for inviting me to participate!!!
