I'm spending Sunday on the red carpet!

  • Pin It
Enough hints. Enough guessing. You guys got really close! But here's what I'm actually doing this Sunday:

I'm going to be on the red carpet at the 63rd Primetime EMMY® AWARDS!

Duncan Hines, the official dessert sponsor of the 63rd Primetime Emmy® Awards Governors Ball, is bringing a group of bloggers to Hollywood to sit in the stands, take pictures, tweet and Facebook and blog, and generally act like star-struck groupies (at least that's what I plan to do). I've lived in Los Angeles long enough that I don't freak out when I see Reese Witherspoon jogging or Harrison Ford getting coffee, but I'm pretty sure that once I'm on the red carpet and all those familiar faces are streaming by in their fancy duds I'll be as ga-ga as the next girl.

After six hours on the red carpet (yes, I checked, there are portable toilets nearby) we'll get to watch the awards ceremony at a special viewing party with Duncan Hines. They've got some fabulous desserts planned, including the amazing-looking cake pops above. You can make them for your own Emmy® Awards party, because Duncan Hines has posted the recipes. Try the Raspberry Red Velvet Truffle Pops, Triple Chocolate Orange Liqueur Truffle Pops, or Chocolate Almond Truffle Pops - don't they look delicious? Personally, I plan to have a go at all three.

Don't worry, I'm bringing my camera. Don't worry, I'll be your eyes and ears. Follow me @erikakerekes on Twitter, watch my Facebook page, and look for some on-the-go blog posts. And if you're watching TV, look for a group of waving, screaming bloggers in Duncan Hines t-shirts. That's where I'll be!

OK, I was off, but in a different direction (I still think that you should go for one of those reality culinary TV shows:)
I am a bit jealous, but just a bit, as I am really happy for you and the opportunity to see it all from a different perspective. Enjoy! Looking forward to reading about the experience!

me a tad jealous :) but so happy for you girl!!!!You will have a blast!! Will be following you on Twitter. Great story someday for your Grandkids! :)

A few years ago we decided to walk up to the Kodak Theatre, since it is two blocks from our home to watch the stars walk in for the Oscars. Not sure how but we found ourselves at the place where stars get their ID checks etc. and you are so right about going ga-ga when you see enough of them. After seeing Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Helen Mirren, Tom Cruise, Steve Carell etc.. I just got so into it. I was screaming, cheering and generally being stars struck that I was a little shocked with my behavior because till then, and since then I have never cared which star is next to me at a restaurant or has a kid in my kid's class.
