Competitions are a lot of fun and if you feel the itch to enter......do it!As a past judge for a cake show competition (I didn't judge cakes, just cupcakes) I have one really hint that makes a huge difference.Make your cake original. The judges have seen a lot of cakes out there and know a lot of designs that have already been done. When I judged, I gave more credit to an original creation, flaws in all, than to a replicated design executed perfectly.Some may disagree...

Cupcake Envy here-Maybe I can in giving some insight about the spheres. We create a lot of sphere shaped cakelet designs and they are cake not cakeballs if that helps.We are selling a how-to step by step DVD for sphere shaped cakelets on our website www.cupcakeenvy.com. They are a hell of a lot easier to create than you think. I didn't mean this to be an advertisement.The DVD takes you through pans, baking, covering, and decorating. We create a 3d sphere Christmas...
