I was recently commissioned to make a cake for my county fair's 150th anniversary Fairest of the Fair competition (that I am also running in). I want to make something really elegant to wow everyone not only because I am running in the competition, but because in previous years they only get a sheet cake from Costco. (How Boring!)

I would like to try my hand at gum paste flowers also, but not anything too difficult.

Anyone have any ideas? send me picture links! Thank you!

honestly the first thing that popped into my mind when i read the title of your post was the enchanted mirror from snow white. maybe you could incorporate your idea of making gumpaste flowers into something of a castle in the forest type cake with a mirror. you could write on the mirror something about the 150 anniversary, fairest of them all etc. i don't know how to post links and i haven't even run a search to see what's in the galleries along this line but i thought i would pop an idea out there for you!

Hello fellow Wisconsinite!
I ran for the very same competition in my county many years ago, so good luck to ya! Maybe do a collage including the crown, banner, depending on your county's main industry (ours is cheese / dairy)- you could also include some canival items..........carousel, ferris wheel, and outline of WI, with emphasis on your county, our state bird and flower.........oh the endless possibilities! thumbs_up.gif
