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 the following styles: Special Occasion/Novelty 1-Tier, Special Occasion/Novelty Tiered Cakes, and Sculpted Cakes (must use real cake, including photos of construction process).
There were a lot of entries, but the photos below are the ones I either liked or found interesting for other reasons.
I think this one placed. When they announced the winners, they would show an image of the cake that won, but the projection system was pretty crappy and you couldn't tell which cake it was sometimes. This is one of those that I think won, but wasn't sure. Next time I'll write this stuff down.
There was something about this cake that I really liked.
Of all the Mardi Gras themed cakes at the show, this one was my favorite.
While I normally dislike the "wacky" or "whimsical" tiered cakes, this one was pretty cool. It kinda looks like something that would feel at home in a Tim Burton movie.
At first, I just walked by this cake without taking a second look. The second day there was a smaller crowd and no one was rushing to see everything, so I was able to take my time and look at some of the things I missed. This was one of those cakes. It's not that interesting until you see the source photo that was displayed next to the cake.
This is still my favorite cake in this division.
