I was just in awe at all the cakes. I really loved the winner's cake, but I was astonished by the drum and sugar cake, as I don't know anything about the sugar stuff. I don't think the monkey cake was in the running, because although good, compared to the others -???? I think for a contest like that, you have to "Bring It On". The carousel was okay - but her presentation of it was off. NOt enough confidence. Needless to say, they were all better than I could of done.
I haven't reached that maturity to make a cake just for decoration, I still want to eat the cake, but for $10,000 dollars - I better learn to decorate!!
