I'm tuckered. Spent. Devoid of energy. Dragging ass like an amputated zombie.
But in a good way!
Two weeks ago, I sent in an application for a new Cake Boss spin-off series on TLC. The following week, the casting agency called and asked me to make an audition tape showing the real "me" and to answer a series of questions in the video.
With the help of director Berry White (you might remember him from his previous work, "Ooh, A Cheesecake Bar!") and my sister Michele, I was able to finish the video and get it uploaded for the casting agency. After a full week of taping, editing and getting sufficiently caffeinated, I now have a newfound respect and admiration for people in the film industry.
I'm a huge sucker for 80's TV intros. Naturally, I had to incorporate that into the audition.
If you get crazy, bored or desperate to kill the last 16 minutes of your workday, you can see me nervously laugh my way through the other two parts here:
For the demonstration segment, I created 3 cupcakes that were based on designs by the incredibly badass and talented artist, Ryan McGinness.

The semifinalists will be selected in the next few weeks so keep your fingers crossed! Assuming it doesn't terribly hinder your ability to update your status on Facebook, of course.
And on that note, I'm going to go celebrate the completion of the video with a full night's sleep.Tweet
