I have a question for everyone. In different competitions, fairs, and such. How do you know when you decorate your table or just put your cake where they tell you? I am getting ready to enter my first cake in our State Fair. I don't see anything in the rules. icon_cry.gif Can someone help me? Thanks so much!!

I've only entered two fairs (two times each) but at both of them the cakes were simply placed on a "bench" or "ladder" type table with everyone elses cakes. There is nothing to decorate. One fair called for the cakes to be on a paper or other plate that need not be returned. The other fair supplied plastic containers for the cakes (mine didn't fit in the container). Unless there is a lot of room to display the cakes or unless it specifies I wouldn't think there would be a table to decorate. Maybe there's a # you can call and ask?

Good Luck to you!

Maybe you can call someone and ask? But I would be prepared to decorate my own cake area...ya know with flowers and such to enhance the look, just in case....but I would think it would be just placing where they tell you....

In NC we just drop our cakes off and they display them for us. You never know where yours will be until you attend the fair. Good Luck!
