Attention, Nashville amateur bakers! I know you're out there. In fact, I'm betting there are a few of you who think you've got the goods to turn pro, if you had the inclination. I've seen you struttin' your stuff at the Whitland Avenue Fourth of July celebration, competing for those ribbons. I've smelled your wares wafting out of your kitchens as I walk my dogs.

It's time for your coming-out party. On national TV, no less!

We've received word that the folks behind a new televised amateur baking competition on CBS are headed to Nashville in a couple of weeks, and they're looking for you! There will be an open casting call on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Market Street Emporium, 112 Second Ave. N. Click on the thumbnail for details.

Here's their come-on, from the website:


Are you a passionate amateur baker? Can you whip up an impressive cake, tart, or loaf of bread?

You may be the perfect candidate for an exciting new competition baking series on CBS!

Amateur skilled bakers will compete against one another in baking challenges that will test every aspect of their baking skills. At the end of the competition, one baker will ultimately be crowned the winner. The series follows the trials and tribulations of the competitors — young, old, from every background and every corner of the United States — as they attempt to prove their baking prowess.

Seeking all types of non-professional bakers from across the country. Whether you’re an athlete, teacher, truck driver or retiree, as long as you have the zest for baking, we want to hear from you!

Any other news? Anyone excited about Rolf and Daughters, which opened Wednesday? Anyone been yet?
