St. Patrick's Day

Here are the cookies I made for St. Patrick's Day! They turned out pretty cute! They are similar to the little Snowmen cookies I made for Christmas!

Winnings from Cincinnati!

So here's what I won for winning
2nd place in the Cincinnati Cake show.
A beautiful cake tiara!

And a calculator! I guess they gave me the calculator because you have to use lots of math in baking and making cakes!

Cincinnati Cake Competition

This was the cake that I made for the Queen City Cake and Sugar Art Show in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was March 6 -8th 2009. I won 2nd place, in the Beginning tiered cakes! So here's my yellow cake!

My First Cake Competition in Nashville, TN

As many of you know, I decided to go to Nashville, TN for my first cake competition. Michelle Bommarito was the headliner for the show. And I think she is the "Goddess of Cakes". LOL, needless to say I have a very high opinion of her. I was really lucky to meet her and get my picture taken with her. She is soooo cool!!

To make a long story short, I won 3rd place in the Amateur Adult Wedding Cake Division of the show. I'll have to put a picture on here of the two cakes that beat me.

Me with Michelle Bommarito

My cake, my 3rd place ribbon, and myself.

Here's the cake all by itself!

The lights and wood flooring!

The star's face up close!

A side view so you can see the little bun on her head!

Just the little lady on her own!
