Live on Studio 5

I was recently contacted by Studio 5, a day time lifestyle show on KSL- NBC’s affiliate in Salt Lake City. They stumbled upon my blog and fell in love with my Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake and asked me to make it at the studio, LIVE. 

I have done a lot of TV interviews for my “real” job, the topic is always something health related. The segments are short and no big deal, but to cook LIVE on TV, that is a different story. Of course I agreed to do it, but I was a little nervous.
Well today was the big day! I got up early to work out and make the “show” cake. I also measured out all of the ingredients for the live segment. Josh was sweet and came with me to the studio. I got there plenty early so I could set up and breathe:) My segment was in the middle of the show. It was fun watching the other segments behind the scenes:)
The butterflies hit me when I saw the “teaser” of my segment. It was too late run though, I was already there and ready to go. Darin, one of the hosts, was in the kitchen with me. He made me feel very relaxed and was easy to talk to. I demonstrated how to make the cake and talked about our blog for a bit. It was actually a lot of fun. Everyone loved the cake too. I am glad it was a success. 
If you haven’t tried my banana cinnamon chip cake, I suggest you do. It is delicious and SO easy!
