Scandinavian Cake Show part 2

I am back home again and thought that I would tell you how it went and also show you my cake:-) My friend Camilla and I arrived late Friday evening in Kungälv very close to Gothenburg in Sweden. I was happy that I could submit the cake Friday so I did not have to worrie anymore and I was curious to see if anything had happend with the decorations. But luckily it was all fine:-)

You could buy different kind of cake supplies like colors, dusts, books, cake tins, paper cases and some very sweet silicone moulds made by Karen Davies, who demonstrated the moulds. I bought two moulds and I cant wait to try them, they are so cute. Sunday was the last day and the announcing of the winners. There was two winners in each category (Novelty & Wedding Cakes). One where the audience voted and one where the four judges: Karen Davies, Carol Haycox, Allison Lilleyman and Agneta Olsson would choose the two winners.

So I am happy to tell that my cake won for the best Novelty Cake voted by the audience. The cake also recieved “Highly commended by the judges” as the only cake at the show. So that was double luck for me:-) I have taken many photos from the show I just need to arrange them all and add them to the cake gallery for you to see.

Happy Caking!

    Hi Louise
    Once again I must say WOW, you are so so creative. I am really amazed on how different your cake is, from the other cake and how it really stands out – in every way.
    I think it’s the coolest and prettiest cake I have ever seen.
    I would like to know, how and when you started doing this and the obsticles you have been faced with, what products to buy and what not, like a mini bio, in someway and a guide to us newbies. I really think it would help others embark on their journey through cakeland.
    Keep on blogging, I always look so much forward to it.
    best
    Rikke

    Congratulations! That is really a lovely job. The simplicity of the design shows how perfect and crisp your execution is. Your fondant is flawless! Also, as other people have said, the color combination is really cute and sweet.

    p.s. I love, love, love, the butterfly cutters. It took me a little while to get the gumpaste dried out enough to make thin butterflies but they are adorable. I have not tried the funky alphabet cutters but I think that your drying out tip will help with these as well. Thanks for the recommendations!
