Okay this may be a dumb question but I was hoping someone here could help me. Last year I entered a cake in the fair and it took first place (yea!) but I also got a high blue ribbon. What is the High Blue for and what does it mean? icon_confused.gif

Could you please tell me if you got any other ribbons etc for the first place win, as well as the High Blue ribbon.
Congratulations, by the way!

I have very little experience in actual cake decorating contests but in all modesty, a vast amount of competition experience in other areas, all related to Agricultural & Horticutural Shows.
Our family has been involved in competing & judging at these shows for over 3 generations.
A High Blue means a High Point Overall Win in a set group of classes & is nearly always based on an overall pointscore total.
Example; there might be 10 classes, all listed under one category.
Each class will have it's winner & minor placings.
The High Point Blue Winner has received the most points out of any entry in those 10 classes.
This system applies to a vast range of competitions, from sewing & handcrafts to horses,ponies & sheep!
I hope this may be of some help to you.
