An Anderson woman is being featured on Food Network’s current season of “Halloween Baking Championship” with a $25,000 prize on the line.
Cicely Austin, Executive Pastry Chef at Clemson University, made it past the first round of eliminations at the end of the season’s first episode, which aired Monday night.
She’s one of 8 talented competitors in the show who face baking challenges with a scary Halloween twist.
Austin says she used some of her crowd pleasing recipes to impress the judges and has a few tricks up her sleeve.
“I kind of felt a little bit of pressure in the next challenge to rise to the occasion and do a little better, so hopefully that’s conveyed,” she says.
Halloween Baking Championship airs Monday nights at 9pm on Food Network.
