TLC show

Okay, somehow I haven't posted about this here.

I sent an application in to TLC for a tv show they're casting for. It's a spin off of Cake Boss. I filled out the super long application and sent it in. A week later, I got this:

Hi Tiffany,

Thanks so much for your interest in our show. Your application was great! I LOVE your story and personality!!!

The next step in the process is for you to make a home video, so that we get a chance to meet you (on camera) and see your talent and personality. The most important thing to remember is to answer the questions with a lot of energy, animation and enthusiasm. (Basically just be yourself!) Your answers in your application were great so feel free to say similar but more elaborate answers on camera!

We pitch a few candidates to the network every week, so please get the tape to us ASAP (Casting ends next week)! The instructions, questions and uploading info are attached. Once it's up, please just shoot me an email to let me know.

Do me a favor and look this over before you start making the case you have questions.

We are super excited to watch it, so have lots of fun!
Tip for the video: Have fun, be creative and do something that makes you STANDOUT! NOW GO MAKE A GREAT VIDEO!! Make sure your video will grab TLC's Attention!!! Make sure to show us some of your talents, interests, or anything that makes you unique in your video (like your love of art and tattoos)!!!!

Thanks and please don't hesitate to ask me any questions.

Wow! How cool!!!

I was in a complete frenzy though. I had to make this video and I had very little time. About two days really. I was going to be out of town all weekend. I did my best. I had to show myself being competitive with friends, so I showed myself doing some biking. I had to show myself doing a hobby that showed my personality. So I got this tattoo!

A rolling pin that says "roll out" lol

I showed myself working on that cat cake as well lol.

I haven't heard back yet, but, of course, I will keep you all posted. I don't know if I'm allowed to share the video. I never got a response to that question. I'll share if I can though!


  1. So I just showed Andy your tattoo and we both think it's amazing. I LOVE IT!

    I can't wait to see you on TV. It needs to happen!

  2. Hi Tiffany,

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your amazing cake skills! The cake went over really well at the shower! Thanks again!
