Meet Brooke Waters.
Her love for baking may soon earn her some major cash flow if she can prove she can take the heat in the kitchen against some talented pint-size competitors.
“It’s just so cool just knowing that I’m representing the state,” Brooke said. “It’s just awesome.”
The 11-year-old Selma native is a student at Morgan Academy and is just one of nine children who were selected to be on season seven of “Kids Baking Championship.”
“When I found out that I was going to be on the show, I was so excited,” Brooke said. “I was like ‘I’m going to be on kids baking championship.'”
Kids Baking Championship debuted on Aug. 5 and will conclude on Sept. 16, where one very talented baker will enjoy the sweet reward of $25,000.
The grand prize winner will also be featured in the Food Network Magazine and earn the title of Kids Baking Champion.
“I’ve always liked baking and to help out in the kitchen, and when kids baking championship came on it was like, I really want to learn how to do that,” Brooke Water said.
In each of the seven episodes, each young baker ages 10 to 13 are put to the test to see if they can measure up to dessert challenges that would make some of the most experienced bakers not rise to the occasion.
“When I get older, I want to go to culinary school and then own my own bakery,” Brooke said.
Brooke survived the first challenge, but you’ll have to tune in to the Food Network each Monday night at 8 p.m. central standard time to see if she can take the cake.
