She deserved to win because you could really tell how much time and skill she had invested!
awww, that was sweet of you to say (because that was me!) I didn't win though, I got third. Of course going to the competition I had secret hopes of winning (along with everyone else). But when we got there and I plunked down my little scarecrow cake, I turned to my husband and said "I don't think I am going to win!" The cakes were so huge and unusual! Everyone was working like crazy setting them up. I thought your cake was amazing, you shouldnt have been embarrassed. It was a brilliant and creative idea. And yours wasnt the only one to fall over. We've all been there, even Duff. Anyone who does cakes understands.
