Hi Ya'll!!! So I'm back from Oklahoma. And it was a blast! I had so much fun and saw so many beautiful, mind-blowing cakes.
I'm so glad I had the courage to go and compete. It's a huge thing to do and now I've inspired some people at work to want to go next year. Apparently seeing me do this has given them courage to go next year! I'm glad I can inspire people.
Here's a picture of my cake:
And here's a link to a bunch more pictures on CakeCentral.com: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1482496
And here's the cake that won:
I was a finalist. I got a green ribbon and lots of goodies. They included a 10lb. bucket of fondant, some red coloring, red piping gel, green decorating sugar, a silpat and a box of cake flower. I didn't get anywhere close to winning and I still got lots of goodies!!! How awesome is that?
It was such an amazing experience. I for sure want to do it again next year if it doesn't interfere with wedding activities. It is a few weeks before my wedding after all...haha. Oh and next years wedding cake theme is monasteries and mansions so if any one wants to share ideas or possible inspiration ideas with me, please feel free.
