This is my very first "competition" cake. I have entered it into the county fair here. The judging is today, so send good cake luck my way if you have the time!
It is 4 tiers, 14, 10, 8 and 5. All fondant - bows and ribbons are 50/50. The broaches are gumpaste with isomalt jewels and dragees. I made each of the broaches different.
good luck and you did a very nice job!!!!!

Gorgeous cake and I love the broaches - Best of luck on the competition
I just heard this cake won 3rd place - I actually entered 2 cakes - this one was by far my favorite, and I am happy it actually placed.
Now, the other cake I entered, which I personally was not happy with - took FIRST. I am going to make a post about the two of them so they are togther. I am so happy I won a first, but really surprised at which one won.
Thank you all for your good thoughts - they actually came through, just in mysterious ways!
Yeah!!! Congrats!!! You must be so proud! Can't wait to see the other cake.
congratulations!! and well done!!
congratulations! Cant wait to see the one that got 1st!!
Congrats! The cake is AWESOME!
Congrats! Knew you'd do it!
Have to add...just went to look at "the one that won"...superb! Probably the gelatin bow convinced them...the whole cake is stunning,and perfect,with so little decoration,but the bow puts it over the top kind of, and makes me want to learn how to do that...
Where is the other cake?
