my first competition entry

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Last year my wife and I were watching a cake show on Food Network. I told her that it didn't look that hard. She told me that I couldn't do it. That was the wrong thing to say. I read, watched, and practiced and entered a easter basket cake in the State Fair at DuQuoin Illinois this year. I got a blue ribbon for the Holiday Cake class and Best of Show for decorated cakes.

Very nice, Ken. I especially like the paint job, makes the basket look like real rattan.

Keep at it.
