BBC invite entries to “Junior Bake-Off” and USA Bake-Off contestants announced
Calling all Junior Bake-meisters!
The BBC and Love Productions have today invited applications from the UK’s junior bakers for the next series of “Junior Bake-Off”!
Any keen bakers aged between 9 and 12 years old may enter the competition (with necessary parental/guardian permission of course), which will be filmed during August 2013. As with the “Great British Bake Off” all contestants must be extremely enthusiastic and confident with their baking, and able to take “constructive feedback”…! Also, Mums/Dads/Guardians must be free to accompany their child during auditions and filming.
So, if your son or daughter is keen, and you can fit this in to your busy schedules, why not download the online application form here on the BBC website, and see how things develop! If you do apply, why not let us know how you get on and recount your experiences during the audition process here at “Kitchen Fever with The Cake Diva” – we’d love to know how you’re all getting on.
Bake-Off goes Stateside!
Meanwhile, Bake-Off fever has spread across “the Pond” and filming has begun in the States. Our very own Paul Hollywood is one of the 3 judges in “The American Baking Competition” (what a boring name – sorry, but it is!) and the series premieres on CBS on May 29th. The format is going to be more-or-less the same as The Great British Bake Off – with a signature bake, technical challenge and “showstopper” bake in each episode. If you’d like to find out more click here; you will be able to read all about the contestants and the other two judges, comedian Jeff Foxworthy and chef Marcela Valladolid.
Well done to Love Productions and the British team of Sue, Mel, Paul and Mary (and all the unseen TV crew)… the format is clearly so popular that the rest of the world is catching on! But, of course I would say this, British is best 😉
