There were some very impressive entries in last year's competition, a very nice display. I enjoyed seeing them all. I did enter and won a first place ribbon for my gumpaste flowers. My daughters and nieces entered the Amateur Adult Category and also won some ribbons.
We are all planning to enter again this year. I am really excited about the two cookie contests.
