Jennette is taking you to cupcake court! Wait, sorry...wrong kind of judge. But Jennette McCurdy did hold court on a panel of TV judges. Jennette guest starred on an episode of Food Network's Cupcake Wars, and she had the honor of tasting and evaluating some pretty sweet treats!
The sweet-toothed star gushed to Just Jared Jr. about her experience as a cupcake critic. She said,"I love the Food Network so much and I never thought I'd be able to be a part of their shows or anything. When this came up, I was jumping for joy and one of my brothers actually asked if he could come. I was like, 'You haven't been on the iCarly set in five years and you want to come to this one?' (laughs)."
And she spilled about the delish desserts she got to try...She said,"There was one called the Sweet Tea Southern Cupcake. The challenge was to draw inspiration from southern states. The French judge [Florian Bellanger] who definitely knows way more than I do in the pastry world and asks me what I thought of it. Of course, it was my turn to speak about it and I said, 'This is the best cupcake I've had in my life. It's fantastic.' My plate was clean. I was scraping for every crumble."
But it turns out, Jennette was a bit easier to win over than the French judge. She continued, "He turns to the girl who made it and tells her it's the worst cupcake he's tasted on the show. He hated it and I loved it. It was a bit embarrassing because I thought my palette wasn't refined."
Well, we don't think there's anything wrong with your palette, Jennette. You were just being the nice judge. And it is a dessert competition after all, so there's nothing wrong with being sweet!
