Not long ago I had an e-mail from Grammasue asking to use one of my cakes for a competition..I gave her my blessing and a few pointers and she went with it and won...What an incredible woman she is.
After that happen I though to myself i shouldnt be scared of entering
competition. Like lots of us I strive to a perfect cake and I think I am not there yet.

Well finally I got over it and Thanks to Grammasue winning I enter the Competition. I won first Prize and Best of show. icon_lol.gif
I thank Grammasue, she believe in my talent and gave me the push I needed to do it. I say to anybody go enter your state fair competition. Is a learning experience...
Thanks for reading! icon_biggrin.gif
