The Bake Daddy is in the house!
Today we were joined by one of the most nurturing humans, Craig Taylor aka @thebakedaddy_.
Craig talks about the incredible time he had on the Food Network's show Great Chocolate Showdown where contestants compete for a $50,000 prize. We break down how one cake changed the trajectory of his career and one quote changed the dynamics of a fierce competition into a family of competitors who encouraged growth instead of breaking someone down.
Get ready – because next time Raquelle's in town we're hitting up the kitchen to get our own bake off!
Craig Taylor has been a professional cake curator since March 2017, the day after his father died. Having worked over 20 years in the casino world, his world upended with his father’s passing. He set himself a mission the very next day: to make a peppermint bark cheesecake for his girlfriend’s birthday. He quickly learned peppermint bark was out of season and nowhere to be found in stores, so he spent the day running from store to store in search of all the ingredients he’d need to make it from scratch – before he even got started on the cheesecake.
Craig has since been selected as one of the ten contestants on the Food Network’s Great Chocolate Showdown, and continues to make highly customised baked goods, with an unparalleled attention to detail.
