After our dear friend, and loyal Fat Girl Food Squad reader, Siobhan Ozege alerted us to the 100,000 Twitter Followers and Food Network Canada Scout contest, us Head Bitches in Charge thought about how much Food Network Canada meant to us in our formative years of food loving and ultimately lead us to starting our own blog.

Yes, it’s true.  Chefs are our rock-stars.  Not only do they make stellar food that inspire us on the daily (for example: Chef Michael Smith’s daily recipes on Chef at Home) but they motivate us to live and try food outside of our comfort zone. LikeChuck Hughes’ journeys on Chuck’s Day Off or John Catucci of You Gotta Eat Herechecking out little dives, like we attempt to at Fat Girl Food Squad.

There were many nights were Squad Leader Ama stayed up late to watch the original Iron Chef and wished she could be a bad-ass chef like Morimoto.  While we’re not as adept of chefs now (we try), we do know a lot of rad chefs.  So whenFood Network Canada cracked 100K followers, we decided it was time to celebrate!  Our friend, Corey Moranis, makes these incredible deliciously cosmic cakes.  We told Corey our plan to celebrate Food Network Canada’s achivement, and she in turn made the most fabulous 10-tier cake that you have ever seen.

Having ridden with this leaning tower of cake on our laps across Toronto in a taxi cab,we got insight into how difficult pastry chefs and contestants on Last Cake Standing have it. Trust us, it was stressful.  But in the end, we got home and we were able to celebrate in full fashion, including a photo-shoot to celebrate you,Food Network Canada.  It’s because of you, your shows and your hosts that are people like us and our readers are inspired to keep cooking, keep eating and keeping living their foodie rockstar dreams.

But most of all, thanks for giving us a chance to celebrate with this bodacious  cake.
