A cake for me! :)

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

Just had to share this…  My boyfriend’s son, Peyton, was so excited about my win last weekend that he asked to make a celebration cake for me.  :)  I baked a vanilla cake and covered it with blue fondant (at Peyton’s request), and then he decorated everything else himself.  As you can see, it’s actually a gold medal in my honor… how sweet!  Thanks, Peyton!


That Takes the Cake 2009 Competition - Post 2

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

The awards ceremony for this year’s competition was held today , and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals were awarded in each divisional category.  I had two cakes entered in the Adult Beginner Tiered Wedding Cake category, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything.  Given some of the beautiful cakes in my division, I figured this year would just be a learning experience.  Imagine my surprise when I not only placed, but I actually took the gold medal in my division!  It was a great validation of the hours of work put into the competition cakes.  :)   Woohoo!  Next year, I’ll technically still be in the beginner category… already making plans!
