Hey Everyone!
I just got back from the Fair to see how my cake did! WHOOHOO!!!

I'm SOOO thrilled to see I got a first place blue ribbon AND a purple rosette for BEST IN SHOW!!! I'm so excited I can barely type!! icon_biggrin.gif I tell ya, to see it with my own eyes icon_biggrin.gif ...then to see people, total strangers walking by all the cakes and making such kind comments on it without even knowing it was mine totally made my day!!

When I got there with my daughter, we went straight to see her entry and she got FIRST PLACE too!!! It was her very first cake EVER! She hadn't even frosted a cake until this one. I'm SO proud of her!

Then we walked over to see mine and even though I already had been told how I did, I was still so thrilled that I cheered outloud. Then a bunch of people came up and starting cheering out loud for me! Talk about an ego boost! Woohoo!!

Anyway, I took pictures of some of the other girls' cakes that are also members here at CC so if they don't mind, I'll post theres too.

Thanks for letting me share my excitement!

Hi Jackie,
You did an outstanding job on the basket of pumpkins! Very impressive for sure! I knew the second I saw it that you'd win! What an amazing cake. Every detail is so excellent!! You should be very proud!

I have to tell you when I was there today seeing how I did, I saw people stopping in front of your cake in disbelief that it was really cake! They were making very nice comments. Just thought you'd want to know! need to join our cake club!!! I'd love to meet you and have you join us anytime. I'd be happy to share info about it. Also, you MUST enter the AZ Cake show in Feb!!

I'm sorry to say I did not take a picture of your cake because I didn't know it was yours!! I had no idea who made it so I only took pictures of the ones I knew. But everyone should check out your gallery to see it!

Congratulations!! thumbs_up.gif
