2011 Cake Show: Children Division

Children (6 years and under): One category – not divided by style. Children may have an adult assist with baking the cake. Each child must ice and decorate their own entry.

I truly enjoy seeing cakes decorated by kids. No one expects perfection and there’s no judging, so it’s mostly for fun.

As in most of the divisions and categories, I did not photograph every entry. These are ones I liked or that caught my eye for some reason.

CAKES: Children’s Division

This division was open to kids 6 years and under.  This was one category, not divided by style.  They could have the parent assist with baking the cake, but they had to ice and decorate their own entry.  There were lots of entries, but the photos below are the ones I either liked or found interesting for some reason or another.
      

"A Day at the Beach"
Techniques Used: finger painting & sprinkle shaking

Description on card: Buttercream beds for fondant family with hair on top.

This is not the only horse I would see today, but it is the bluest one at the show.

Next year I will borrow someone's kids so they can have fun too… and I have some in mind already.
