My First ever Cake Show experience !!
A very exciting and humbling experience to have participated and won two prices in two categories.
This cake was made for the Tiered Fondant (limit of 24" by 24") category.
After weeks of planning and days of execution created this structure with “dream cake” in mind.
Extra effort was put into creating a different cake board look by stenciling (tried this technique for the first time !) with icing; tedious task must say!
Several techniques were applied on the cake such as draping, stenciling, hand painting, airbrush etc, and each rose was hand made.
Cake survived 470 mile road trip from mountain view to San Diego and won second place in the (Amateur) category.
The wonderful reviews from celebrity judges and public made it one of the best cherished moments of my life.
