Iowa 13-Year-Old Nash Roe Competes On Food Network!
According to the Food Network, Nash, "...is a kid baker from Iowa. His baking business is called Nash’s Confections." A quick check of the business's website tells us a lot more...
The Nash Roe's Story
The kid's business started out of necessity.
"Nash’s Confections is a Des Moines, IA based bakery specializing in our CINNA-ROE™ and other homemade baked goods inspired by family recipes which use the highest quality ingredients to create the best product.
Over Mother’s Day weekend in 2020, my sister fell of a hammock and got a concussion. It ended up with my mom and sister in the hospital all night, while I slept in the car, and Nash being 11 years old… thats how Nash’s Confections came about. It started with making cookies & muffins and selling them to family and friends for very low prices." (Source)
In the first episode, Nash stayed in the contest by cooking his famous CINNA-ROE™ (great name, Nash Roe).
The winner of the Kids' Baking Championship gets the $25,000 Grand Prize. See the show Mondays at 8, and 7 central on the Food Network.
