Iowa’s ‘Kids Baking Championship’ Contestant Was Sent Home This Week
It's always exciting when a talented Iowan is featured on a big competition show, especially when that Iowan is just a kid!
Back in December, season 11 of the show 'Kids Baking Championship' premiered on the Food Network. Since then, folks from all over Iowa have been rooting for 13-year-old Nash Roe, an 8th-grader from Clive. Nash started his own baking business back in 2020 called Nash's Confections, which helped him land a spot on the show.
Throughout the season, Nash has been posting episode recaps every Wednesday on his Instagram account @nashs.confections. Today's recap will likely be his last because, unfortunately, Nash was eliminated from the show on Monday night. According to the Des Moines Register, Nash narrowly escaped elimination during the "Power Lunch Imposters" episode on January 30th, but during the "Interview with a Baker" episode on February 6th, he wasn't so lucky. Regardless of the outcome of the Cream Puff Cake Challenge, making it to episode seven was still a huge accomplishment for Nash! He said during the episode, "I'm really grateful for the opportunity to even be able to step into the kitchen and granted, make it to week seven so I mean, that's pretty crazy."
The good news for Nash is that he still has a booming business to run and a long career ahead of him! Iowans can place an order for pick-up on the Nash's Confections website. Current menu items include Bavarian Pretzel Rolls, Pecan Pie Cheesecake, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cupcakes, and his famous CINNA-ROES.
