I need some help with a picture if possible. The challenge was from 2005. It is the one where Marina Sousa of Just Cake and Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes were some of the competitors. Marina won that competition, her first, but my problem is I can't find a picture. I want to make a cake similar to it for my daughter's 2nd Birthday, but I haven't been able to find a picture of it anywhere. It re-aired in October, but it got erased on my dvr. I was hoping someone here would have a picture of it. To jog your memory, Elisa's cake was the sock monkey, and Marina's was a cake made to look like a party table with gift boxes if I remember correctly, a teddy bear, a mini cake, and other items you might find on a party table.

Click on the link and when it opens, click on the "Press" area at the top then click on Food Network. It shows it for just a minute...sorry, best I could do!

If you go to Marina's website and click the orange food network symbol, it will launch a slideshow and you will see it there, the 2nd pic i think.

ok...for some reason, the link bypassed the actual page I was trying to point to and went instead to the homepage. But from there, you can choose Press and you will see the orange food network symbol there...HTH.

Oh my gosh, thank thank you thank you! I didn't ever think to go to the press section of her website. Thank you for posting the picture for me, it will make it easier when I go to make the cake to have something to refer back to. Again, thank you, and my lil boo thanks you too!

Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE music on webpages?

Hubby's watching a moving so I have my headset cranked with my Itunes and her site opened and dang.... that was some loud music. I couldn't hear my Itunes over it and it is playing rather loudly. lol
