I watched a couple of episodes of this last night and I am amazed that these contestants can bake all these items from memory. They must have notes somewhere that they use that the camera doesn't see.

Todd,

I'm not sure about that. I mean, if a professional singer or pianist can do four 20-minute classical music pieces from memory, folks can certainly memorize a couple dozen recipes for a contest. If they're professionals, they may have already memorized them just through repetition. When I was a baker, I certainly didn't need the written scone and pastry dough recipes after the first month.
