I put two cakes in the State Fair on Sunday and I got second and third place! I was ecstatic, since this was my first time entering.
I have two cakes going down today, then one next week, and one the following week.
I was disappointed that I didn't get any entry forms for cookies. I really wanted to enter them, but I was so nervous when I filled out the paper work, that I over looked them.
I am already working on ideas for next year, and I won't forget my cookies.
I wanted to show the pictures, but I still can't upload any.
Congratulations - how exciting that must have been!
Let us know when you upload your pics; I love seeing winning entries!
Congratulations! Can't wait to see the winning photos!
Sorry you forgot your cookies.
Congratulations! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of those winning entries.
Surprise, Surprise, when we took the other two cakes down today, we stopped by the cases to see my ribbons for the other two. I almost hit the ground, they had changed them from second and third, to both first places. I was shocked! I even went and asked one of the workers. She said that the Judges weren't aware of all the criteria, and they re-judged the cakes after I had already left.
So....to first places, for my first time at the Fair. I won't know on the two I dropped off today until Thursday. There were hundreds of cakes and I didn't feel like staying to watch them be judged. They had to actaully taste each layer on each cake. Now I love cake, but there is no way I would be able to do that.
What great news for you, deetmar! You must be on cloud nine about now...I know I would be.
