Calling all French-Speaking Moms!

If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake...
La Mom has another casting call -- this time for mamans who speak French!

The Mission: Make the best chocolate cake in the world.

The Theme: Do you have tips for le meilleur gâteau au chocolat du monde? Why not show them off on French TV? Who knows, maybe Pierre Hermé will call you up to learn more about your secrets!

(Sidebar: La Mom politely declined this little opportunity. Mainly because I burned the merde out of the last chocolate cake I baked for Big Fry's birthday party. It was so inedible that even Big Cheese wouldn't touch it. Now that's a real kitchen fail.)

The Challenge: Beating eggs, pouring flour, and chatting to the camera all at the same time. In French. Trust me, it's a lot harder than it looks.But if La Mom can do it, so can you!

For more information about how you can become La Nouvelle Star of baking, contact La Mom!

Kisses on both cheeks,

I'd love to see these entries.
I am no Martha Stewart when it comes to baking, and for me, speaking French while trying to cook would be une désastre!

@Mandy Now that's an idea. That would be true entertainment -- the wannabes (like La Mom) getting eggshells in the batter and cussing in broken French. Remind me to pitch that as a reality TV show!
