Food Network show kicked off its annual competition, Holiday Baking Championship on 6 November 2023. Among the 12 talented bakers battling out for the festive season was Sharrod Mangum.
In the process of whipping up all kinds of sweets and treats, some of the competitors on the show are known to have impressed the judges by making some outrageous claims. Was Sharrod one of them? Let’s find out in the rest of the writing.
Justine Rota On Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship
Justine Rota had to wait until October 2023 to tell everyone she took part in Season 10 of the Holiday Baking Championship. She gushed that this year all her dreams came true and recalled how 7-year-old her had told her mom she would be on the Food Network one day. Saying this, she invited people to catch her on the show’s premiere episode.
It is not already understood who won the show. In case, it was Justine, she would have taken home the hefty $25,000 cash prize. She was still in the competition after Week 7. During “Can’t Wait for Turkey Day” aired on 20 November 2023, she was dubbed the winner. In this particular round, the bakers were asked to make Thanksgiving day centerpiece cakes that looked like Thanksgiving tables. Of course, there was a twist as well, and that required them to add sage somewhere in their cakes.
During the introduction, the Food Network people introduce Justine to their audience as someone from the “home of the chocolate chip cookie.” They say she is the proud owner of a home-based bakery and that her favorite part of the holidays is baking cookies with her family and then driving around together in search of the best Christmas lights. She is also a self-proclaimed shopaholic and lover of all that is pink and sparkly — they stressed at last.
