When Pigs Fly Pastries was selected to compete on a new baking show called “Sugar Showdown”. We were flown to Toronto for a whirlwind trip to film in July. It was lots of fun and we met some awesome people – especially the other competitors surprisingly enough! Although we did quickly learn that cooking shows are much harder than they look on TV! This was a tough competition and it really tested our abilities when we given BEETS as our secret ingredient. We ended up doing a play on a carrot cake – switching out the grated carrots with grated beets, and adding pineapple, coconut and some lime buttercream to give it a tropical twist!
The episode aired on Cooking Channel in the States in January, and just recently aired on Food Network Canada. Since the show we have been overrun with lovely messages from clients, industry pros, friends, family & even perfect strangers! What a dream come true to compete, but having all of your support made it that much sweeter. We cannot wait to compete again!
