Due to a last minute cancellation and/or lapse in the producers judgment, I was asked to go back on the Fox morning show on Feb. 21st for a short cooking segment.

I was so excited and honored and shocked and excited! Until I realized I had NO idea what to do!!!

So! I need to ask you a favor. Can you help me decide please?

Here are my thoughts.

The Ultimate Dessert


Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing (more of a tutorial)


Coffee Sugar Cookies


Something Brand New


Dont Bake. Try to Challenge Myself and Actually Cook Something. (aaahhhhhhh!)


So, think you can help? Here goes.

  1. Anything would be wonderful, but I certainly wouldn’t try anything new or attempt cooking because why mess with what you already do best?! (I voted, too.)

  2. Hmmm, Manda, it depends on how much time you have….too bad it’s not before Valentine’s Day, you could demonstrate your heart cake. Maybe you can do your faith cake. What other holidays are coming up? St. Patty’s…but that’s kind of too far from Feb. 21st…you could do something spring-y…

  3. I think your sugar cookies are beautiful, but do you think it will be easy to demo on TV (the motions are so small)? Making the Ultimate Dessert might give you more to do with your hands and/or something interactive for the hosts to help with. (I, of course, have never cooked on TV, so this great expertise comes from watching the contestants on Next Food Network Star!)

  4. So exciting! I’m very happy that so many other people are learning what I’ve known all along…YOU ARE AWESOME.

  5. I have to agree with Jami – I love the sugar cookies but not sure how that will show up on camera. The ultimate dessert will have everyone drooling!!!!

  6. CONGRATULATIONS!! That’s awesome news! I’m not much help with which you should choose…they’re all great! I think that I’m leaning towards the ultimate dessert because it just looks so yummy 🙂 Did they give you any guidelines at all??

  7. definately the dessert. nice and big, doesn’t look too daunting (maybe those at home will give it a shot?)
    wish we got that channel here! you should post it on utube!

  8. I would love to see the sugar cookies because the royal icing is so beautiful (what kind of food dye do you use btw?) and I think it could reach a lot of people. Another good idea would to do the oreo cakesters petit fours. But definitely not the cooking, because after all they have asked you on because of your baking skills, not cooking skills.

  9. I love all the things you bake, really! At first I was going to vote for the sugar cookies but also wondered how that would show up on camera. I tried to imagine myself watching and that’s why I changed my mind. I don’t think the camera would do them justice! So I voted for #1, I think that will really be a hit!
    Or something new, but that’s sooo risky, I think anyway! 🙂
