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!!!
