OK...Now that I have your attention...
My daughter, being very creative, loves those Cake Challenge shows on The Food Network (OK, I watch them too.) So as part of her 13th birthday present, I took her to a cake competition in Philadelphia last week. The cakes there rivalled those I had seen on TV. Honestly incredible. I took A LOT of photos.
Oh and by the way- WE GOT TO TASTE EACH ONE!!!! AND THEY HAD TAKE OUT BOXES SO WE COULD BRING CAKE HOME!!! (My pancreas may not recover from this one....)
This one was modelled after a wedding ring quilt and had "stitching" in the fondant which covered the cake.
This little guy went with the quilt cake as a groom's cake- completely edible! Isn't he cute!
Believe it or not, this cake was in the student competition! Love the flowers and the lustre dust!
