I saw the two entries in the buttercream category in my division and now I’m kicking myself for not finishing that cake and entering it because mine was more interesting. I’ll post the photo of the two entries and my unfinished cake tonight. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
My entry for Confection Not-on-a-Cake would have had a chance if I hadn’t accidentally put a finger into Rocket Girl’s thigh. Half-dried royal icing is difficult, if not impossible, to repair and there are several other entries in this category that are very good. There’s still a very small chance I can qualify for third place, but I won’t be devistated if it doesn’t happen.
We’re currently watching the on-site mystery cake competition.
