This is the cake I'm entering in the county fair this year.

Not too good. My eye sight isn't what it used to be. The turrets aren't really level and were hard to form.

Thanks for sharing. I am jealous of your baking skills. Never made a cake or baked in my life. My Mother didnít like baking. So she never taught me. One skill Iím sorry I never learned.

I paid for my college text books working at a Baskin Robbins, decorating ice cream cakes. Still decorate a few celebration cakes for family members, from time to time, but NOTHING even approaching something that spectacular!

35. Cake covered in fondant. The turrents are heavy since they're made of

sugar modeling paste (fondant mixed with gum tragacanth). I removed some of their centers to reduce the weight. I'm still nervous they will smash down the towers.

if the towers fall down during the ride to the fair grounds, it'll look like a lot of colors on the stairs.

A young co-worker could not grasp the meaning of this expression. I tried to explain to no avail. This cake would have made an excellent example.

See how pretty this cake is? Now, once you've eaten it, you no longer have it to look at and admire.
