I promise I won't take any ideas from your thread! It would be great if CC got that "pin" so we could all "know" eachother!
My husband and I were going to take a little anniversary trip a weekend in october, and I said "Honey, how about we go and do this cake contest!" Okay so it isnt maybe the most romantic weekend, but he was really supportive and said I should do it.
Good luck! I can't wait to meet some of you in person!
I'm not sure if I am doing this reply correctly but I am trying to reply to Merrisa.
Congrats on the anniversary and being a contestant! I agree about not worrying about winning. I have very little experience in cakes (look at the photos) but also don't want to look rediculous!
I still have no idea what I am going to make. I have a friend who contacted the lady taking the app's for this contest and she said that there are people ranging from children to homemakers and hobbyists to Wilton Grads and pro bakers from Chicago doing this contest. So, the competetion seems varied and since there are kids doing it, I guess I will at least look better than theirs (Oh man I hope!).
I am going to buy a CC shirt if you are all going to be wearing yours! Let me know and I will order it today!
