Alumna to Appear on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off

Meredith College alumna Anna Echols,’06, appears on the new TLC competition series ULTIMATE CAKE OFF in an episode airing February 15, 2010, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

In the episode, Echols, who trained at the Orlando Culinary Academy, leads her team of expert pastry chefs, cake designers and decorators from Orlando’s Party Flavors Custom Cakes as they face off against two other teams in a challenge to create an edible masterpiece in hopes of winning $10,000 and to have their cakes featured at a marquee event. For this episode, the cake is in competition to be featured at the Long Beach Ballet's production of The Nutcracker.

With only nine hours, the competitors must make cakes that are at least five feet tall and are creative enough to win the taste of the client and the ultimate prize. To add to the pressure, the contestants also face two mini-challenges – a skills test and a taste test – that could give one team the ultimate advantage: being able to sit out another team for 30 minutes.
