I finally found the info about the Puyallup Fair and they do indeed have a cake decorating contest for amateurs! I am so excited, but I don't know what to expect. I've never been to one of these and they don't give a theme. It just says "Create your best decorated cake using any butter cream, royal icing or fondant type frosting. Each cake cannot exceed 9"wide and 12" high." Juding criteria is 50% Appearance, 30% Creativity, and 20% taste. I have no idea what to do! I guess it is wide open since there is no theme to follow.. any ideas or advice??
I am so excited!!
make a cake to please you, you will either win the judges or not. But as long as you do your best and please you then you have controlled what you can.
Good luck and don't forget to have fun.
