Gonna be in Knoxville, TN for a couple of days. Are there any have-to-go-to bakeries or cake supply shops that I need to check out while I'm there?

Hmmmm...

Magpies -- http://www.magpiescakes.com/ -- in the Old City (near downtown) is pretty neat.

VGs Bakery -- http://www.vgsbakery.com/index.html -- in Farragut is nice.

Rita's Bakery in Fountain City (north part of town) has delicious cookies.

Sugarbakers is a great shop for supplies.

Amyfj1, are you going to enter in the cake show by the library downtown next month?

TJCanadian,

I'm thinking about entering but I have some health issues I'm dealing with right now and not sure if I'll be well enough. I looked at your cake photos and you are soooo talented! I wish you lived close and we could get together for a cake day. I could learn so much from you. If you ever come to Knoxville, email me and maybe we could get together.

Who is entering the contest? I really want to but not sure if I'll be healthy enough. I may try to attend if I can't enter. What is everyone making? Anyone in the surrounding area that would like to get together for a day of sharing?

I would love to do a day of sharing, I'm a hobby baker but checking into what it takes to get licensed. I'm planning to enter something in the show since we moved here recently and I don't know anyone.

I'm trying to decide if I want to enter. I'm such a beginner, but I think it might be fun to try something.

Do enter, I don't want to be the only one icon_smile.gif I just moved here so I want to get out there but I have no idea if they've had this each year or how big the turnout is, etc.

I've been here most of my life and as far as I know this is the first time this competition has happened. icon_biggrin.gif

I did enter last night in the beginner category. I'm nervous about it, but looking forward to it. I was up way too late last night trying to think of a design.
