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!

Wow!  What an experience attending/competing in my first cake decorating competition this weekend.  With easily a hundred (probably more) cakes competing from bakers ranging from child/teen to adult beginnering all the up to professional/master, there were some amazing cakes.  I entered two cakes this year - both Tiered Wedding Cakes in the Adult Beginner division.  My group ended up having 9 total entries, which I’ve pictured below.  I’ll write more when I find out who won!
