I entered my cake in the county fair this week and received a blue ribbon & a merit award. I did a topsy turvy Alice in Wonderland 5 tier cake full of bright colors. I have had so many people come up to me at the fair and tell me that my cake is just amazing. This is all after I took a year off from making cakes. My mom passed away and I just haven't felt up to it. She was always so proud of me when I did these things. After taking my family to Disney World this year, I was inspired by Alice in Wonderland. A lot of cakes right here on CC have inspired my design (thank you!) and I just got word that my cake is going to be on the front page of our local newspaper tomorrow. I can only dream of the words my mom would have said... I just wanted to post this to anyone else in a rut, maybe it will inspire you to start decorating again Thanks CC!
I am sorry to hear about your Mom.
Congratulations on your cake.
We here at CC are proud of you. Your mom is too, don't worry.
Your mom probably was upthere in heaven guiding your thought and hands to create such a wonderful cake
First let me say that I'm sorry for your loss. I know firsthand how difficult it is to continue with life after something so tragic . I must say though that your cake is absolutely GORGEOUS! Your mom would certainly want you to keep on cakin' . I'm glad you have your "mojo" back
So, sorry about Mom. I wish I could share my cakes with my mom too, who passed away before I started my cake hobby. Hang in there.
Your cake is AWESOME! Beautiful colors...congrats! Mom would be proud.
BTW, It's good to see a fellow Wisconsinite on CC. Sometimes I think I am the only one! I live close to Manitowoc.
