Oops, missed a cake from the Adult Advanced Division

This one didn’t place in the Wedding cake category, but I got photos because I enjoyed the flowers.

(I hope I got the name correct, but the entry form wasn’t very clear)

I’m working on the photos from the Adult Professional division now. Hopefully they’ll be up Monday night after I finish the rest of the yard work. Actually, I’d better have that and the Adult Masters division up because there’s hockey on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

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.
