Arizona's Heather Walker Takes The Cake on Food Network's Bake You Rich
On the May 6th finale of Food Network’s Bake You Rich, Heather Walker of Scottsdale, Arizona beat out three other talented bakers when she impressed Cake Boss Buddy Valastro with her Pecan Stuffed Chocolate Cake. On the four-part bake-off series, Buddy Valasco gives four entrepreneurs the opportunity to partner with him and have their signature dish sold online nationwide.
“My stuffed chocolate cake started as a piñata cake after my chocolate cake recipe fell in the center one day,” explains Heather. “I stuffed the center with M&Ms, and then thought...why just candy? Why not more frosting, or peanut butter and fudge...or caramel and pecans?! It snowballed from there and before I knew it, I was standing in front of Buddy Valastro, making a national sales pitch and it worked!”
“Winning this was about so much more than just money or popularity,” says Heather. “This was my third show with Buddy Valastro, and my third WIN with him. I feel now like I’ve achieved a sense of accomplishment. I’m REALLY hard on myself, so to hear the “Cake Boss” say that I’m “brilliant” makes me feel like I’m right where I want to be. “
