Auditioning for the Baking Shows

I took the chance at auditioning for the two baking shows announced on Cookie Connection.
While I made it to the final rounds for both shows, I did not make the final cut.
It was a great opportunity for an amateur to compete against the professionally trained.
Thank you Julia for posting the notices.

Thanks, Poppy! And congrats for making it as far as you did - that's an accomplishment in and of itself!

 

I have connections with a couple of casting agencies through some of my other work, so I'll continue to post casting calls as I get information about them.

 

Stay tuned, and best of luck in any next go-round! (Who they cast is a function of much more than training, so one never knows what's in store!)

Great point Julia.

The casting producers were confident my personality, image, quality and depth of my work was acceptable. They interviewed me for several hours, looked at dozens of examples of my work.

The show producers said they were looking for participant with professional training.

Maybe the casting folks said those kind things to let me down easy and so they didn't have to say I really am a lousy baker.

I doubt they were trying to let you down easy, though they should have said they were seeking pros at the start so as not to waste everyone's time.

I am just now seeing this post and did not know the shows were posted here, as I was contacted by the Casting agency for the Holiday cookie show.  I was up for this as well, went through lots of interviews, pics etc and was told the same about personality, qualifications.  I am a self taught cookier who is extremely proud of my experience and cookies business that I have built from the ground up..Whimsy Cookie Company and I am very proud to even to have been considered for this show.   You should be proud as well! Great job!

congrats poppy   I was elated to know you entered and that you were interviewed      I am especially proud for you that you were in the final cut    

My first thought was that they didn't say one had to be professional    and after reading julia  I agree with her     -   they should have indicated that in their release...
