2011 Cake Show: Junior Division

Junior (7 – 12 years): One category – not divided by style. Juniors may have an adult assist with baking the cake. Each junior must ice and decorate their own entry.

As with most of the divisions and categories, I didn’t photograph every entry. These are ones I liked or that caught my eye for some reason.

I had to include a copy of the photos that were displayed with the cake. I’m also trying not to squee like a fangirl about how adorable she is… I’m such a sucker for cakes and kids together (which reminds me, I still have to post photos of my borrowed children and their cakes after I finally get the competition photos all up).

I liked this one so much that I was sending a photo of it to all my friends before we even left the Junior section of the show.

CAKE: Masters Division – Part Two

The Masters Division is for decorators who are experts in sugar art. They are known to blah, blah, blah… you know the drill.

Here are the last of the Master's Division photos.  There are only three cakes in this post, but I have a lot of photos of these three cakes stuffed in here, please be patient if it takes a few minutes to load.

It's all edible too…

Next is the winner for the Novelty Tiered Cake.  It has rats, lots of rats.

So are those little black coffee beans around the cake, or rat dropping?  Rat feces jokes aside, I thought this cake was rather cute.

The third cake is an absolute masterpiece.  It won first place for the Sculpture Cake in the Master's Division, first place for the entire Master's Division, and if I'm remembering correctly, it also won first place over ALL of the divisions.

Presenting the last horse of the competition:

This is a freakin' awesome cake.

There are still the Show Cakes and some of the demonstration cakes, and then that's it for this year.
