The theme this year was "Vintage Wedding Cake" To raise money for the cause, I made 3 practice cakes and auctioned them on my facebook page.
My cake didn't place this year. Evidently the bow was too big, the cake was a little lopsided, and they thought the hearts on the top tier distracted from the stringwork below. Did you see the dropstrings? I'm still proud of this cake, and look forward to the competition next year.
