Last weekend on March 27th, I took the plunge into the world of cake competitions. I will be honest and say that I am not the competitive type. I don't go into competitions knowing I am going to win or talking myself up, it is just not who I am. I am a self critic and I love feedback about the work I do.
So the big question...Did I win?...No, but I can tell you about the cake I made and all of the wonderful things I learned. I am so glad that I went and participated in the competition. After setting up my cake I was able to take 2 amazing classes by Rebecca Sutterby of Sugar Creations.
She taught a Perfect Fondant class where I learned all the ways I did it wrong for the competition and all the ways to do it right from now on. She also taught a mold making class on how to make silicone molds for use with fondant, gum paste and isomalt.
