|Double Chocolate Brownies|
My entries of Mocha caramel pecan and double chocolate brownies are nothing compared to the amazing cake designs that have arisen for 2011. From wedding cakes to name cakes, this years number one cake would have to be a Christmas Novelty cake which is a section from the 12 days of Christmas. This cake blew me away with their air brushing techniques and detail they put into the layout. Not only that but you would not believe that it was NOVICE.

What disappoints me however is the way the judging is done. As an entry I am unsure on the exacts of what the judges themselves are basing it from. Is it taste, texture, look, personal attraction??? We as people who enter are nun the wiser if they have met there criteria of there chosen category nor are they aware on why the winner was chosen. I do love the excitement of entering and using my hobby to test challenge myself but I would also like to know how they are chosen.

But there is still another year headed our way, so I am off to take another bit of the cherry, thinking of brand new ideas and researching recipes to do it all over again for 2012. It is rewarding to see your creations behind glass with everyone looking and pointing at them. Comments going left and right on which one they think is better.
