Kids Baking Championship

Recommended Posts

I enjoyed it, like all the kids, and the parents were fine. But I was a little wigged out when a kid (Miabella, maybe) said they got the call she'd been selected "last week" and then traveled to LA. I realize I am someone who has had a feeble immune system since 1977 (I was already washing my hands a zillion times a day using the same technique as medical professionals and using hand sanitizer a lot), was an RN, and would have majored in Microbiology if I hadn't been a non-traditional student needing to finish. But I had this idea that they brought everyone in, had them quarantine for a period, tested them, and then started shooting. But from "last week" it seems like a bunch of kids and adults flew in from all different parts of the country days before starting to be in close contact for hours day after day. Maybe they're testing, but you can still transmit the virus before you test positive. I don't feel as carefree watching it. It doesn't matter when this was filmed. Any time after March means they're not being safe enough. IMO, anyway.  Don't mean to be the death of fun, and maybe the baker misspoke or production actually is safe. But I got concerned.   

I wouldn't take something a kid says (or an adult, really) in terms of time too literally. "Last week" could mean almost anything. Plus, that specific interview snippet, if it was part of her "introduction" interview, might have been filmed early in the process when they were still quarantining. I'd imagine it would be easy enough to do those at a distance with minimal contact.

Yes, that's why I said maybe she misspoke and allowed for the possibility that Food Network did everything right. Thing is, Food Network had a lot of footage to choose from and they aired that snippet. So they mustn't care if people think they might not be taking adequate precautions. Either by airing a statement that is not true and gives tacit approval to risky behavior or being lax in their practices, Food Network biffed it. Sorry, I have lost five friends to coronavirus in the last two months. Two were healthcare workers who got it at work. I pay attention to how productions are handling things. I won't bring it up again, but since I did say it could be an error, I wanted to address your response to me. Here's hoping all goes well. This show is consistently one of my favorite cooking/baking competition shows.

Hi, I did see where you said they might have misspoke - I was just trying (clumsily) to provide a little more reassurance so you could hopefully enjoy the show better. I'm sorry for your loss.

Not sure why this recap best of show is folded into the new episode as a two-hour "new" show, but I loved seeing the kids again. Peggy is fifteen - and her brother randomly walking into the frame cracked me up. Annika from the OG season is seventeen and on the pre-law track. Matthew is sixteen and said that cooking for Valerie and Duff was "the highlight of his childhood experience." (Man, if that didn't make me feel old!)

Once they got to the dessert imposters section I waited for S2 Rebecca's BLT sandwich to be number one or at least be on the list. I was wholly upset that it wasn't. I wonder if she ever got the chickens she wanted, lol.

Valerie saying she couldn't eat one more bite of cake and Duff asking why couldn't they have the Kids Quiche Championship made me laugh!

The look back episode was very fun. When they were listing the best tasting desserts toward the end, I had a feeling that Paige's chocolate-cherry-mascarpone-pretzel cake was going to be on there, because that's one judges' reaction that has really stuck with me - and then she was number 1, so that made me happy.

As for the actual episode, I had to laugh when Miabella said "One thing I've learned over the years..." Her whole 12 years of existence on earth XD.

Still one of the most fun shows on TV, even with the parents being there. They keep it to a minimum, so I can deal with it. I barely noticed them this time.

There are still a lot of kids and it's early in the season still but, so far, Haylin is my favorite.  I just like her and she seems to know what she's doing.

I enjoyed the second hour.  I love seeing how the kids have changed (or not) as they've aged.  Justice is one of my all-time favorites so I was hoping they'd have him on.  He looks just the same only taller.  I was one who wasn't thrilled when Aiden won but he seems to have developed into a nice kid.  Peggy is still a sweetheart.  

It's always obvious to me that Duff and Valerie like each other and enjoy working together.  That dynamic is a real benefit to this show.

So far I'm enjoying this season! The challenges have been good and the kids have been fun to watch. My early pick to win it all is Keaton. Not sure why, but his station always seems so organized and clean, so it feels like he will be good throughout. On the opposite end, I think Bella will win some challenges by accident lol. Love her personality, too.

Love D'Von's crush on Linsey, too! :-😍

Speaking of D'Von, I laughed at this exchange between him and McKenzly as she was adding a whole jar of peanut butter to her cupcakes:

McKenzly: I can't taste the peanut butter! *adds more*

D'Von: I think you should stop.

McKenzly: I'll stop after this. *adds more*

D'Von: ...yeah.

I was a little surprised that McKenzly was sent home. Wasn't it her idea to make the meringue cookie clouds? The only meringue Duff actually ate. Brought me back to my childhood. My mother would make these meringue drop cookies with chocolate chips. So good.

I’m not a Nemo fan. He seems rather obnoxious and like a brown noser to me. I thought he was kept wrongly when he was in the bottom. 
 

I enjoyed the recap show though. Justice was also one of my all time favorites.

On the Food Network website, they have a gallery of the show's best dessert imposters. Not only is Rebecca's BLT not on it, but Linsey's baloney sandwich (which was #2 on the best moments show) isn't there either!

So my digital cable guide has the rainbow cupcake episode airing at 8:00, marked as "new" (and Season 9, Episode 6!!) and a "Dessert Imposters" episode airing from 9:00 to 11:00, listed as a repeat from Season 1, no less.

The Food Network site is no better, as the episode list for "Season 9.0" spits the 2 hour premiere into Episode 1 and 2, and lists Episode 4 as a dessert imposter episode titled "Three Square Meals". But there's also a "Season 9.1" which has the 2 hour premiere as 1 episode, and has Episode 3 as the dessert imposter episode called "Dessert Imposters and Best Bits".

So my guess is, repeat of the cupcake episode at 8:00, new dessert imposter episode at 9:00, some sort of special/recap similar to last week at 10:00. Whew! It shouldn't be this difficult, should it???

I just watched it, and you are right, the 8:00 episode was a repeat of the rainbow cupcakes. From 9:00-11:00 was the dessert impostor episode and an hour of best/funniest moments, in one show.

The dessert imposters this episode were on the whole the best ones of all the seasons! Very impressive. Keaton definitely deserved the win! Was a little surprised the pizza wasn't in the bottom.

The retrospective episode was fun, but it felt a little odd for Duff and Val to be giving recognition to their own behaviors lol!. Seems like they were stretching to find some things to retro-spect about. I think it would be fun if they did some behind-the-scenes stuff.

Agreed on both. I think this was the best batch of dessert imposters I've seen, honestly. Good job, kids!

Who are everyone’s favorites so far? I’m liking Keaton, Haylin, and Nemo, but tbh I don’t think Nemo will go much farther as it seems like he’s barely scraping by each week. Haylin is adorable with her accent and reminds me a little bit of Saylor and Brynn who are two of my other favorites from previous seasons. And Keaton just seems like the cool kid whose desserts look and taste awesome too. I was super impressed with his burger last night!

That is not the result I wanted! Bella annoys me to no end. She would have still been trying to make crepes if Miabella hadn't helped her. I didn't want Jonah to go home either. He seems so earnest. Most of imposters looked pretty good. Agree that Haylin and Keaton are the front runners.

I said it after the 2nd episode; Keaton is my pick to win it all. His station always seems so clean, which says to me he's calm and organized. And clearly he knows what he's doing. I also love Bella for her personality but think she could make a huge mistake at any moment lol.

Haylin is still my favorite but I'm adding Keaton although I hate his haircut.  That hamburger was probably the best imposter ever.  

I thought they sent the right kid home for the reasons Duff gave.  The shortcake part was mush before she even added the not-imposter toppings.  

The parents being there hasn't annoyed me like I thought it would.  I feel for them when their kid isn't doing well.  There aren't too many things worse than seeing your child, whether they're 10 y/o or 40, go through something painful without being able to help.  Losing a cooking competition is low on the calamity scale but you still hurt for your kid.  

I'm enjoying the "best of" shows.  I could do without the interspersed comments from this year's kids and wish they'd involved more contestants who are now much older.  It's fun to see how they've grown.  I was dismayed that they featured Namaih (sp.) so much and even reinforced her bad behavior.  She was a rude little spoiled brat and the only kid from any season that I ever wanted to reach into the TV and slap.  I wish Valerie would go back to her natural color even if that involves dye.  I think she looks a lot better with dark hair than as a bleached blonde.

I agree! Bella's whiny attitude and  disgusted faces really annoy. I thought it was a cold shot that it was only because of Miabella, who was a total cutie, that Bella got her crepes, and then Miabella is sent home. I know her French toast had errors but so did some of the others. The pizza looked a mess, and the biscuits and gravy looked nothing like biscuits and gravy.  I think Haylin is good but her accent bugs, I am sorry!  The kids I don't care for are Bella and Keaton, is he the one with the front curly hair?  He has an air of arrogance about him that I don't like to see in any kid. Not sure about Cydney. She is kind of working a "cuteness" thing.  It was so nice to see some of the kids from past shows. I loved Justice, the Weatherman! Lindsey and Peggy look like such lovely girls. Do not know what was going on with Jane's hair!

Even though D'Von putting his "cheese sauce" in a bowl on the side and letting the judges pour worked out well for him, I did crack up when he was plating it and his mom was like "put the thing over the thing! 🤦‍♀️"

I can see why Bella's crossing the line for some people, but she makes me laugh. I enjoy her "fly by the seat of her pants" approach, though I don't think it bodes well for her long-term chances. Haylin and Keaton do seem like front-runners, but before this episode I might have put Miabella in that category, too. So who knows? Cydney's giggle is as cute as can be, and Nemo is kind of the male Bella.

And Duff's horror at learning that multiple kids didn't like cheese XD

I'm enjoying the retrospectives, though I'm a little disappointed in the lack of Graysen, possibly my all-time favorite baker from this show (even though I have to look up her name every time to make sure I'm spelling it right lol)

Haylin's accent doesn't bother me.  It's genuine.  I think Cydney is too, at least from the little we've seen of her so far.  She has that babyish sort of voice but I think that's just the way she talks, not something she puts on to be cute unlike a couple past contestants.  I never did care for Jane and she hasn't improved with age.  I still love Justice and Jackson.

Looks like she dyed it pink and put some in a couple of buns, as people do. A lot of my friends have let their kids dye their hair during the pandemic (and get pets). It's quite a thing. Personally, I love seeing pics of my friends' smiling kids with their hair dyed pink and green and blue and every other color. Poor kids are living through a pandemic. I want them to have hair (or pets) that make them happy.

Same. I look younger with lighter hair for sure. In Valerie's case, it seems to have the opposite effect. She looks much older (to me) as a blonde.

 I bet every report card of D'Von says "NEEDS IMPROVEMENT WORKING WITH OTHERS." That brought back some painful school project memories.  Bella was being bossy,  but his hiding things from her and being overtly jerky was obviously making things so much worse.

Cydney and her sweet giggle will be missed. What a cutie. Her mom seemed a little intense while watching backstage,  but I really liked how encouraging and positive she and her mom both were at the end.

I really disliked how Bella was ordering D'von to make the caramel, when he had tried several times, like she was the queen or something. She doesn't work well with others. I didn't see the part where D'von was doing these things, and he was wrong to, but I can understand his not wanting to cooperate with Bella. I liked how Haylin and Namiah? not only worked together well but "good jobbed" each other as they left. IMO being a good sport is important in any competition, how the kids help each other, congratulating each other, etc and hopefully the parents are proud of them.

On the other hand, to me it felt like Bella was trying to communicate and D'Von was just ignoring her, like she really cared about how the team performed and he didn't care at all.

I think both were true - Bella is bossy and D'Von deliberately ignored her to do his own thing, despite the fact that is was detrimental to the team aspect of the challenge.  He is lucky his hand pies (I'm with Haylin - here we have "fried pies" and they are the best!).  Cydne was a sweetheart and I was sorry to see her go.

This is a tough one, and we might not have seen all of it either.  Bella was way too bossy and he shut off, was my read.  Keeping in mind that he's a kid, I think his reaction was pretty understandable.

Yeah she started off trying to dictate, and his response - possibly from experience or possibly he did try and it was cut - instead of communicating "I disagree can we do X instead" was to just do his own idea which he thought was better. Like he thought her way was going to get them in the bottom so he wanted to do his (in his mind) "right" anyway, instead of spending time trying to convince her. Not good. But an understandable reaction from a child who thought there was no reasoning with her.

On the flipside, her response was to just keep barking orders and assume he'd cave to her, and she felt like she had the high-ground because her reasoning was "team cohesiveness". While she wasn't wrong that they were supposed to have cohesion, her method for accomplishing that was "do exactly what I've already done". It was also a little odd to me that part of her logic all along was he was so behind and hers were nearly done so of course he had to mimic her designs so they'd be similar - and yet he was tasked with the caramel twice and she kept saying she didn't have time either. Her pies went in the oven way before his...so...how could that be, little miss "fine I'll try it once, do it wrong immediately and then pass the buck right back".

I mean, I know they're children so of course we can expect immaturity, but they were both reallllllllllly showing off their immaturity here.

I liked Cydney so much but it was definitely the right call for her to go.  What a lovely young lady she is.  

This will be very unpopular, but I thought Bella was horrible in her bossy, it’s my way - just follow me, YOU do it D’Von (caramel), saying whose idea was that (when Valerie and Duff praised the stars on his hand pie), pushy and not-a-team-player behavior at all from the get-go.  D’Von was in the wrong to sneak the rectangle cutter without collaborating with her.  But clearly Val and Duff knew about the issues and I’m so glad Bella didn’t win the week.  She is an entitled, I’m-so-cute mini-tyrant IMO.

I think Bella didn't have time because she was working on her egg salad for the ants on a log part of the challenge. I thought both came off really poorly, and was really glad Bella didn't get the win.

Interesting, as I never got the impression of Bella as being entitled. But rather she either has a lot of older siblings or is in some other circumstance where she has to be aggressive to get what she wants (or else be in a situation where she doesn't get anything). So really more about being aggressive out of necessity in her home life.

D'von was classic passive-aggressive with Bella. I have to wonder where he learned that at such a young age, and why? I'm looking at you, mom. Peel the peach indeed. She seems very invested in this experience. Duff and Val liked his hand pie so peach skin was not a problem.

Loved when Matthew's mom said she liked having a messy kitchen if it meant her son was cooking.

Cute little Cydney was a sweetie but it was her time to go.  I'm just sorry she was up against D'Von and his smirking.  I hope both he and Bella get eliminated soon.  Neither of them came off well.

I'm enjoying the second hour although the segue last night was weird.  Maybe it was my local station but there was no introductory anything and it started while Duff was in the middle of a sentence.  I wish they'd stop featuring Jane.  She's almost as annoying as she was when she was on the show and her comments add absolutely nothing.  Matthew makes me laugh and I liked his mother's comment.  I'd like to see more of Jackson.  He was one of my favorites.

Same happened to me. The competition part seemed to go a few minutes over 1hr, and it's like the 2nd part started right at the top of the hour, so it looked like they skipped the introduction and even part of the "award" they were giving out.

Surprised not to see some of the kids from the past, like Bryn, Nyah, Alex, Davey and others who appeared on the Halloween or holiday specials. Do you think Food Network didn't ask them? Or Food Network asked and they declined?

Also thought it was a little odd that they ended the retrospective on kind of a down-note looking at the biggest mistakes instead of something more positive. And in the future, I'd love to see some of the past contestants being included in the actual competition shows as guest judges or something like that.
