Okay, so I'm entering my first competition next month, and I'm wondering, what are the most imporatnt things I need to do? I've never been to a competition either, so I have no idea what to expect. Thanks!

What kind of competition is it? Do you have any more cake photos, so we can kind of see what your strengths are?

It's a cake competition with the theme of "Fairytales" and I'm going to be doing a cake themed off of 1001 Arabian Nights. I've got a good cake planned, most of my cakes aren't posted on CC. I'm not looking for advice on the cake, but on competitions. Thanks!

bonniebakes, thanks for the link to the great thread! I am also entering my first real competition (I have entered once in my state fair) and this was so helpful!
