That Takes the Cake Art Show & Competition

The reason for the lack of blogging these past couple of days was because I had the opportunity to go to the Capital Confectioner’s Cake & Sugar Art Show in Austin, Texas.  Basically I conned my mom into coming with me for the weekend, and she of course said yes, since she is the best mom in the world!  I have to give a big thanks to Kyla who stopped by my blog and let me know about this great convention…without her I definitely wouldn’t of gone.  The convention had a competition side and a class side to it.  I got to watch Bronwen Weber, Autumn Carpenter, Steven Stellingwerf, Nicholas Lodge, and Earlene Moore do demos for a whole day…I was in heaven, expect for the fact that the day before the trip I came down with a dreadful cold and was sick the whole trip, but nonetheless I learned a lot and got to see a bunch of great cakes.  I will hopefully be trying out some of the new techniques that I learned from the trip later this month and sharing them with you, but for now I just want to share all of the cakes I saw with you.  Enjoy the photos…there’s a lot of them!
