 "kitteh Gonna Get Ya!"  on Cake Central

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. :)
