"That Takes the Cake" Competition
The Capital Confectioners Cake and Sugar Art Show and Competition was held this weekend in Austin. I entered this cake in the Professional Wedding Cakes category and came in First Place! Wow! I was bummed that I didn't sign up for any of the interesting classes that were being taught by well-known cake artists. Maybe next year I'll get my act together and sign up early. It's still cool that I got First Place, though. I wasn't expecting that!
The cake design was inspired by a really cool vintage table linen I bought at a flea market in Wimberley about 8 years ago. I loved it so much I made a tote bag out of it. Now that the bag is frayed and on its last legs, the design will have a new life as a cake.
