I'm so new to this but have been bitten by the decorator's bug in a serious way. I think both my husband and I have gained 20lbs by all the cake I'm making. Now that I'm a stay at home mom, I have plenty of time to endulge! I'm really into making cakes, mostly. But have done some cookies that I was pretty proud of too. Anyways, back to the subject...

There is a local Craft Show/Expo for fellow crafters to display their masterpieces. I would really like to enter. Any suggestions?? Any advice is greatly, greatly appreciated!!!

Just some things I'm wondering...How many should I make? Was thinking about making a couple of mini cakes and raffling off a big one. Thoughts??? Also thought about making cookies w/different themes. What about the bite size flavor cakes?? How to keep them fresh??

Thanks so much for reading this and more importantly...helping me!

Are there any restrictions? Is it only for display or for sale? If you want to showcase your talents, obviously you would want to make those things that are your specialty and are most proud of. I would shoot for something a bit out of the ordinary, or the ordinary done very, very well.
