Jennette McCurdy is living out another dream job — a guest judge on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars!
The 19-year-old actress/singer shared with JJJ exclusively, “I love the Food Network so much and I never thought I’d be able to be a part of their shows or anything. When this came up, I was jumping for joy and one of my brothers actually asked if he could come. I was like, ‘You haven’t been on the iCarly set in five years and you want to come to this one?’ (laughs)”
Jennette continued about just some of the flavors she got to taste, “There was one called the Sweet Tea Southern Cupcake. The challenge was to draw inspiration from southern states. The French judge [Florian Bellanger] who definitely knows way more than I do in the pastry world and asks me what I thought of it. Of course, it was my turn to speak about it and I said, ‘This is the best cupcake I’ve had in my life. It’s fantastic.’ My plate was clean. I was scraping for every crumble.”
“He turns to the girl who made it and tells her it’s the worst cupcake he’s tasted on the show. He hated it and I loved it. It was a bit embarrassing because I thought my palette wasn’t refined.”
Jennette‘s Cupcake Wars episode will air in late August/early September to coincide with her album release.
