"You don't have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy a cupcake - although you might find that sharing a batch makes even an ordinary day seem that much more sweet."- Martha Stewart

It's Fair Time

Our county fair allows residents to enter items to be judged either on taste or decoration for cakes and cookies and other edibles. I've wanted to do it the last couple of years but finally got around to doing it this year. I made three different flavors of cupcakes to be judged on taste and I decorated a Halloween cake to be judged on decorations. I'm not thrilled with the Halloween cake simply because I had such grander plans. But, life is what it is and so I did what I could with the time that I had. The base of the cake can be false but every decoration has to be edible. I had fun using lots of different mediums that I don't use very often. We'll see how I do :)
