I entered my first Cake Decorating competition and Won!!!!

It was such a surreal experience. My husband laughed at me because I was so controlled when I won. He said I must have been in shock.

I have LOTS and LOTS more photos on my facebook. I could only load 6 or 7 here.

ummmm a really long time! ha ha ha I started prepping about 2 months before the competition. I'd sit in front of the tv and make roses... other nights I'd work on little detail pieces or making molds, etc.

Thank You!

Here's the full "description" of the process.

You'll have to remove space and all...

A well deserved win! I love the tree and how you used it so that it 'holds up' the next tiers...and the fountains are gorgeous, love those too!

Thanks so much guys. It was a little "overboard" but at the same time, I really did have fun with it.
