Kelly’s Cake Off for a Cause

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

How gorgeous is this cake?!? I helped make it! :mrgreen: Sabrina, Joseline, and I teamed up to create this beauty.

All of the cakes created at the Cake Off can be viewed online at Kelly Confidential and you can vote for your favorite. Please vote for our cake!!! 😉


Isn’t it pretty!? :mrgreen:


Yesterday was the most amazing day! I participated in Kelly Ripa’s Cake Off for a Cause to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. It was one of the coolest events that I have ever attended.


Buddy Valastro of “The Cake Boss” attended the event, too! He was incredibly nice and down-to-earth. He chatted with our team for quite a while.

During the event, the 15 bloggers were split into five teams of three. Each team was assigned a themed cake to recreate. We were “Team Mod Squad.”


We had a blast decorating our cake and playing with the fondant! It was sort of like Play Doh. 😀

Please vote for our Mod Squad cake!!! Voting will continue until the end of February and you can vote once EVERY day. (If you get a “database error” when you try the website, just refresh the page. It should work!)

For every vote cast, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. You can also enter to win a new Induction Range from Electrolux by sending a “virtual cake” to a friend. For every “virtual cake” sent, Electrolux will donate another $1.

Buddy and his crew gave us lots of tips and tricks to help us create our cake masterpiece.



And, we got to taste one of Buddy’s cakes right from his shop, Carlo’s Bakery, in Hoboken. It was the most decadent piece of cake– soft and moist with frosting to die for! I almost ate the entire thing– and it was a BIG piece!


Buddy signed my apron! So cool! :mrgreen:


Yesterday’s Cake Off event is one that I will never forget. Thank you, Electrolux and Foodbuzz!




  1. Love your cake! It is so bright and fun! I voted for it and will continue to every day. If you remember can post a link as a reminder to us to vote daily?

  2. How fun! I absolutely adore your cake. I voted today and I’ll continue to do so. It’s so nice that the money is going to a great cause.

    Buddy is going to be making an appearance near me in a month or so. I’m thinking of taking my friend’s daughter who is obsessed with Cake Boss. Glad to know he’s cool.

  3. I work for Discovery/TLC and we got a chance to try one of Buddy’s cupcakes one day and they are DELICIOUS!!! Looks like you had so much fun, and your cake looks great!

  4. Ive been dying to go to Carlo’s bakery for a while so I have to admit I am so jealous that you 1. Got to try the cake and 2. got to meet him! What a great trip to the city 🙂

  5. Awww!! Jealous, jealous, jealous!!! 😉 I took a cake decorating class a few years ago and have been baking since I was old enough to use the oven. What an opportunity, Tina! Congratulations on the whole trip… meeting Kelly, being in the audience, decorating the cake, meeting buddy, TASTING his cake (*dreams*) and everything else. Wow, wow, wow….

  6. Tina- I am almost positive your cake was just on Rachel Ray with the Cake Boss. He was giving a tip of how to use fondant and said to use cookie cutters. The cake looked JUST like the one your team created..
