3. Congratulations

We used to go the Virginia state fair when it was here at the racetrack. They’ve moved out into the middle of nowhere.

I was always impressed at the number of categories for different talents. Photos bonsai trees knitting you name it.

4. Well deserved! I'm curious to know...

What will kitty's fate be? Will that masterpiece canine be consumed or somehow preserved for posterity? Embalming fluid? Pray tell.

6. All decorating contest entries aren't made of cake. We use

cake dummies, cake pans, or styrofoam. The cake started as a 4" x 14" square and a 4" ball of styrofoam. Then came 8.5 pounds of fondant. It will keep it's shape forever or until the fondant is pried off under hot water.

22. Did they x-ray that cake?

Or did they assume you hadn't "Goldfingered" this poor kitty with icing? (a very old cultural referral)

Also, did it purr when it got the ribbons? Cat's everywhere want to know.

I looked at all the pictures of your cakes that you posted here. Boy, was I impressed! I made a clown cake once, for my boys' birthday. They thought it was a snowman. There is a huge difference between a clown and a snowman.

I've taken cake decorating classes so I know that wasn't an easy one to pull off.

37. I messed up his nose. It should have been 1/4" forward, more even with his muzzle.

I should remember to check profiles.
