CAKE: Adult Intermediate Division (Wedding Cakes, Special Techniques Not on a Cake, and Confections)

The Adult Intermediate Division is for decorators with developing skills, two to four years cake decorating experience, 30 to 60 hours of cake decorating or sugar art instruction. 

This post covers only some of the wedding cakes, special techniques, and confections entered in this division (these are the ones I either liked or found interesting for other reasons).

The petals on the roses of this cake were paper thin and the color is marvelous.  Too bad the leaves look like thick, cheap rubber. Other than that, this was a nice cake.

While this looks like a lopsided cake (another one calling itself "whimsical", which makes me cringe), it's actually considered a Special Technique not on Cake.  If you look closely, you can see that it's a gingerbread house.  A lopsided gingerbread house that is threatening to whimsically fall over and crush its competition.

Another Special Technique not on Cake, but I won't be making fun of this one.  Not only is it very well done, but the tiny little doves on the bird bath make me smile.  This one got an award.

Another Special Technique that won an award.

Molded chocolate that was hand painted.  It was amazing and one of my favorites.  I don't remember if it won second or third.

Seriously cute.

Is it still a cupcake if it's not in a wrapper?

Yes, these are cookies, and they won first place for Confections in this division.

The mendhi cookies were the other confection that won either second or third place.

And I'm adding this one, because I forgot to include it in the earlier post with the correct category:

Yep, rubber chickens trying to get a suntan at the beach.
