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!

Louise

    What a beautifully neat cake! It’s lovely. Congratulations. The Karen Davies moulds and books are beautiful. I have all her books and some of the moulds. They are well worth the money.

    Rebecca: Thank you:-)

    nenu: You can buy dummies mae out of styrofoam and use that instead of real cake. Try search for “cake dummies” or go to the cake stand tutorial. There are link to company’s who sell dummies.

    Erika: Mange tak:-) der kommer noget på et tidspunkt.

    Cake Bunny: Thank you and yes look out for the ebook,-)

    Faccina: Glad you liked it.

    Peggy: well I thought we would have name tags on but no. I have also found out that I have missed many of my nordic friends as well.

    Rita, marielba & Macdacruz: Thank you all three.

    Tracy: Thanks and great that it went well with the cookies.

    Rikke: Thank you so much. I first started making a cake (my own wedding cake) back in 02. Then started to take classes in 04 and then it has been going on ever since:-)

    A newbie bio? …. good idea! You are always welcome to send me an email. I will see what I can suggest to you.

    Hi Louise,

    Wow, congratulations! I love your cake! Your cakes are stunning. I would like to learn how to do the cupcake on the cake. It is lovely and such an excellent job. Once again congratulations! Thanks for sharing!

    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!

  8. marielba says

    WOW, congratulations, you did an excellent work as usual, your cake design is unique and your finish work is perfect,
    Hugs from Venezuela

    Congratulations Louise!!! Your cake is very pretty. I know someone from Finland who went to the cake show and voted for your cake! She was very excited that you were going to be there but unfortunately didn’t get to meet you. You have a lot of fans, you know!

  10. Cake Bunny says

    Cute, clean, and colorful…Brilliant! I love that you take an item for inspiration and turn it into your own work of art. Congrats Louise and we look forward to the e-book :o)

  11. nenu says

    WWWOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your cake it’s just simply BEAUTIFUL!! I hope one day I can create something just as beautiful. Congratulations, Louise.
    By the way, I will like you to learn how to make a dummie cake because I just can’t keep baking so many times just to practice. I hope someday you put that on your tutorials. Thank you and again congratulations!

  12. Rebecca says

    A big Congratulations!! Definitely very deserving of the votes!

    I love your work and you are a huge inspiration for me, as a beginner in cake decorating. Thank you for posting your tips, your information & of course, the gorgeous photos. 🙂

  13. Louise says

    WOW THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL SOO MUCH FOR ALL THE FANTASTIC COMMENTS:-) I TREASURE EACH ONE OF THEM. OF COURSE THERE ARE A FEW THINGS I WANTED I COULD HAVE MADE DIFFERENT WITH THE CAKE BUT THAT WILL BE NEXT TIME. YOU CANT LEARN EVERYTHING IN ONE DAY. I WAS JUST HAPPY IT DIDN’T BREAK INTO PIECES.

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE ASKED ME FOR A “HOW TO” ON HOW TO MAKE THIS CAKE…. MAYBE??? I AM THINKING OF WRITING AN E-BOOK AND THIS COULD VERY WELL BE ONE TO WRITE ABOUT 🙂

    I HAVE MADE THIS CAKE OUT OF STYROFOAM (CAKE DUMMIES).

    AGAIN I REALLY APPRICIATE ALL YOUR COMMENTS, THANKS.

    LOUISE XXX

  15. Denise says

    Congratulations, Louise!!! It is a much deserved win! I also am a fan of you and your website. I learn so much and am always inspired. Would you post a “how to” on this cake, especially how you did the cute cuppie on top?!?! Thanks for taking time to manage this site and posting the tutorials!

  16. Melena says

    CONGRATULATIONS! You have the talent and skill and your cake really beautiful. It’s like a cover for a cake decorating mag!

    Louise, congratulations!!!! This is so elegant and beautiful. On one of your posts, you said you were going to do a “fake cake”….does this have real cake on the inside or is it a fake one?

  18. Lisa says

    It is a beautiful cake!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing. If you shared how to make it too I would be doubly estatic! Thanks so much, its darling!!!
