It was an epic day on Cityline today. Chatelaine celebrated its 85th birthday, and it was pretty over-the-top. Audience members won the most incredible prizes (including a trip for two anywhere Porter flies!!) and the Chatelaine team went all-out to deliver really fun content.
I showed Tracy how to decorate all of our stunning birthday cakes. She was a star and piped some beautiful rosettes on our cherry cake and made lovely dollops on our Guinness fudge cake, proving how downright easy all these decorating techniques are. I also made a delicious Pimmosa cocktail, which is the perfect brunch drink. And I showed off two of our “now” recipes — we took inspiration from Chatelaine’s amazing recipe archives and updated a few faves.
As always, there were a few hilarious live-tv moments! When I opened the sparkling wine, it exploded all over me, Tracy, and the set (did you know that when sparkling isn’t chilled, it explodes?). Then, when I tried to squeeze a lemon it squirted right in my face. Alas, the show must go on.
After we wrapped the show, everyone had a cocktail and a slice (or two) of cake, a great way to celebrate a terrific show and a major milestone.
