What happens when your pickle and ice cream cupcakes get written up in People magazine? It turns out that you get to be on local TV (the clip is at the bottom of this post)!
If you are not from St. Louis (or even if you are) you may not recognize the dude on the left in this photo – it’s Tim Ezell from the Fox morning show. The lovely lady on the right is my prego friend Lori who got to come on the show to taste test my cupcakes. It was great for my nerves to have a friend along. As for the person in the middle holding the plate of cupcakes, that’s me! I thought that I’d shown enough pictures of me on the blog that my readers would have some idea of what I looked like, but judging from Theresa’s tweet after the episode aired, I guess not:
To show you even more of what a real person I am, I will point out that my biggest dilemma about being on TV was what the heck to do with my hair. I’ve been into braids recently…
…but I thought maybe that would be too cutesy. I took a poll in my hula hoop class (clearly they are all fashion experts) and it was a unanimous vote for hair down – so that’s what I did. (Yes, I wrote this whole section just for an excuse to throw in another picture of Myles. Next time, maybe he’ll get to come on the news with me.)
My biggest fear about being on the show was having to scoop ice cream on air. Would the ice cream be too hard? Would I grunt? When you watch the clip, you’ll see that I had the opposite problem; it was too soft and stuck to the scoop – oh, well!
The folks at FOX 2 were super nice and I look forward to the opportunity to feed them cupcakes again some time in the future!
