In each episode, Vincent attempts to guide the owner of a struggling bakery through a reinvention to save their business.
She will travel to three Pennsylvania bakeries in the first season of the show. Viking Pastries in Ardmore, Phatso’s Bakery in Chester, and Schubert’s Bakery in Nazareth will each be featured in their own episode.
“The bakeries and the people involved were amazing. All of them were really great to work with, all of them with different personalities, all of them with different problems, all of them stuck in the past. Hopefully, the few suggestions that I was able to make will help them into the future. Sometimes, discarding the past when you’re wrapped in a generational thing where ‘it’s all about what my great grandparents did and I have to keep it going’ needs to have a review every once in a while, and I don’t think any of them had reviewed in a very long time,” Vincent explained.
Vincent also said it was never her intention to become the host of a television program.
“This is kind of a Cinderella story. I’m a cake lady. That’s my first and foremost thing. I make cakes, and I made a name for myself in my industry with the designs I do. Somehow or another, I became an accidental appendage in television, the biggest shock to me. It’s nothing that I went after; it came to me. I think it’s an inspiration to people. If you work hard and do things and don’t have ulterior motives, sometimes good things can happen.”
“Save My Bakery” premieres tomorrow night at 8 p.m. on the Food Network.
