"kitteh Gonna Get Ya!"

My first competition cake for the 2008 Austin "That Takes The Cake" Competition. Entered in the Adult Beginner "Sculpted" category. All fondant on golden vanilla cake w/buttercream crumbcoat. Eyes inlaid to black fondant w/some holographic sparkle for highlight. I was pleased w/it, it was honest, clean and true to skill level entered.

Thanks again everyone!!! Oh, and when I had Bronwen Weber look it over for a critique, she rec'd NOT flipping the fondant, and that she would have recessed the black portion more. I agreed, I had considered cutting it back further, but was afraid I would have to enter the 'cupcake' portion as the amount of cake would have been even less! ;) I was very grateful to her for her advice and time. I was tickled that she thought the cake was cute, too. Wendl

I believe what Bronwen said meant that should could see that I put the 'to the rolling mat' side up and I should have put the 'to the rolling pin' side up. :) Heck, it was 2 a.m., I am lucky I got it on the cake! :) Next time...I am taking the week prior to the comp OFF! Working a 40+ hour a week job and commuting is very hard on my cake making! Y'all, I am so very appreciative for the comments! Being my first submish, it was daunting, but even though I didn't medal (this time!), I was glad I...

I just wanted to do something that I hadn't seen before, but that meant something to me. I prefer more offbeat designs, but that's me. I am not a foofy-frilly bridal cake maker - but the punk rock wedding cake at the Comp was WICKED! I LOVED that one as far as my view.

I was at the show (the Red Woof Inn was mine), and I thought your kitty was as cute as can be and very imaginative! You were up against some very stiff competition in that beginners division. But don't be discouraged - your cake was well done and adorable!

I didn't win anything, but I heard and was given some great compliments on it which made it worth my while. Sadly, on the drive home, a sudden stop saw it crash to the floor! :cry: I had been hoping to bring it into the office. Thank you all!!! It was a work of love. I have more ideas for next year already. :)
