Hi everybody! Last weekend, I participated in the annual cake 4 kids contest! It is a contest held by the non profit organization I volunteer for. (Cake 4 kids) 50 bakers competed in different categories. The contest was very well organized and was attended by a large number of people. It was held in a nice hotel in Sunnyvale, CA.
Overall, It was a really great experience for me and I had a lot of fun. All bakers were required to make 1 small 2 layer 6 in. cake for the judges to taste and judge and one 8 or 9 in. 2 layer cake for the public to try. It was fun to see and try other competitors’ cakes. I was very happy with the taste and look of my cake, and received a number of compliments from the public as well as other bakers.
The flavor of my cake was red velvet with cream cheese icing and was covered and decorated with fondant.
Anyways, I decided to go with the owl themed cake because if you have read my About Me page, than you know that I love owls and plus I thought that this would be really adorable to do. I made the owl with fondant and hand cut it. I used a special cutter for the border. The judges were very happy with my cake and the best part was that I won 3rd place in my category!
Here are some pics we shot at the competition:
