Live, Camera, Action!

Last month I had my first live TV segment, where I demonstrated how to make one of the recipes from my cookbook. Mr. P was very supportive, patiently waiting while I tried on a zillion different outfits, accompanying me on trips to buy new tools, and even taking a few hours off work so he could be there for me to help calm my nerves.

However, this being Mr. P, he also inadvertently caused some major stress the morning of the segment when he took a big bite out of the cake I was bringing as my finished cake. Guys, I’m not even exaggerating when I say this was one of the most perfect cakes I’ve ever made. Each cake comes out a little differently, but this one was puffy, smooth and just barely overflowing over the rim of the mug. But of course it never made it onto the air…

I tried to make several more that morning to get that perfect look again and it nearly made me late to the show. Alas, I wasn’t able to recreate that flawless looking cake again, but at least the segment went fairly well.
