COSHOCTON − A Coshocton native is entering the competitive and high profile world of cooking and baking competitions on the Food Network.

Amanda Fox Walker will appear on the episode of “The Big Bake” airing at 11 p.m. Monday on the Food Network, with a rerun at 3 a.m. Tuesday. It’s the ninth episode of the program’s fourth season. Titled “Wreck the Halls,” the baking teams will create cakes of the North Pole crew up to no good. Judges are Ron Ben-Israel, Eddie Jackson and Danni Rose.

On the show, professional baking teams have five hours to design, bake and decorate grand-scale cake creations based on Halloween, holiday or spring themes. The winner gets $10,000.

Amanda Walker, a Coshocton native, will be competing on "The Big Bake" on the Food Network during an episode airing Monday. She led a team of three cake decorators from the Dallas area to create a cake with the theme of "Wreck the Halls" for Christmas.

Walker can’t speak on how she did until the episode airs, but said taping the episode was an experience like none other. She owns It’s a Cakewalk in Farmersville, Texas. It specializes in creating unique novelty, structured and 3-D cakes.

The 2004 River View graduate majored in criminal justice at Cedarville University. She worked for the Internal Revenue Service for four years and was transferred from Dayton to the Dallas office. She now works in law enforcement with her home baking business being what she called a “side hustle.” But it’s something she’s serious about. Her height was 102 cakes in 2020.
