Exhibited this year for the first time at Cake International at the NEC. This is like the Chelsea Flower Show for cake makers. And I got awarded a 'Merit'.....................like I'm over the bloody moon! I entered the cupcake class as I love making intricate cupcakes, but rarely get to do so as they are expensive for customers. Had to make 6, all different, with a common theme. I got great praise in my judges feedback.....'lovely approach to theme', 'great use of dusts and piping gel for detail' and the judges suggested I 'up my game' for next year! Going to enter cupcakes again next year and a bigger cake. Celebrating with a bottle of my fave pinot noir...................to say I had tears in my eyes is an understatement. May mean not a lot to anyone else.....but this means the world to me. To be recognised by the industry's top judges at the top worldwide event. So, here's my little entry!
