It was cute, but I thought that my ingenious rose-butterfly combo could take it, especially since I put it on a darling cake pedestal:
That is, until all the other adult entries started arriving. Then I realized I was toast. Toast!
The middle of this sunflower is an Oreo cookie! Isn't that awesome?
This one, titled "Butterfly Garden in the Spring" or some such blabber, was the winner for the adult category.
Really, though, I think the winner was this 3-D fondant fairy.
Judging from the audience's reaction at the announcement, everyone must have thought the fairy was the clear winner. It really was a beautiful piece of work made by a very talented food crafter. Too bad the judges didn't appreciate it as much as the audience did. As it was, the actual winner of the adult category didn't even stick around for the outcome of the contest. Shame!
I'll have the teen entries for you tomorrow.
