Those are cool. I used to make cakes for Baskin Robbins when I was in college. Let me tell you, they are good. We used to eat the scraps. It was one of the few benefits of working there.

No, no good eating :(

Since it is a cake decorating contest and the cake's stay out all week and most of them like my 12 year old daughters cake took her two months to finish.

No the cakes are made out of Styrofoam. The kids are judged on creativity, skill, and age of the individual. I will say this.......the smell is wonderful, the kids make buttermilk icing and they seem to get more icing in their tummy than on the cakes. It's the sugar rush that keeps them going for hours on these projects.

My kids would like some suggestions on what they should make for this years fair. They plan this all year long and would like some input from u fine folks :tiphat:

In the past few years they have also made.
A toilet (not the outhouse) the clowns where on the toilet tank and one was flushing another clown down the toilet
A blue racing car
A medieval castle with a whole array of fighting Vikings. This cake was huge.
A cat using a kitty litter box barring a clown with other clowns hanging on its back and collar. It was a huge hit.
And last but not least
A foot wearing a sandal that stepped on a cow pie, the caption read "Welcome to the Fair" :shock:

So get creative, and just a note.........The kids always go for the "shock factor", to pass it by the judges they add clowns :roll:

Those cakes were wonderful they should be very proud of themselves. I used to make cakes for my children when they were young for parties and things, the last one I made was for my Daughters 21st, she wanted the Mr Men, I made a lot of little cakes that looked like wooden paper covered play bricks and then all the Mr Men in coloured marzipan and placed them on top. Everyone said it was impressive.
What about a show ring with cows and clowns, inside???

Hay the kids want to see some pics Chrisy, do you have any :???:

not sure I will ask my Daughter if she has any, as mine are all gone, my husband threw a box away by mistake and it had all my photo's in it, I was so upset as a lot of the childrens baby photo's were in there to. As you can imagine he was in the dog house for a while, still not sure I have totally forgiven him.

That would make me ill, how so you get over somthing like that. Was it every pic you had or do you have family members that can help you get some of the pics back, sorry to hear this happened, my heart sank when I read that. :cry2:

Thankfully, each child has an album of their first year, and a copy of each school photo, so that is a back up of some, but nearly all the holiday photo's have gone, one or two survived, the ones the girls stole from the box, glad now that they did. One thing I am glad for is that the old videos of them taking their first steps and saying their first words were somewhere else. My youngest daughter took them out saying not to keep them together in case of any accidents, and put them in the safe...Think she knows her Dad.

WOW
I bet your hubbie feels like crap, you just can't get over a mistake like that. It will haunt you forever, even if your family is understanding.

SSU your twins may like the look of this cake, for one to make and show. It's one I made for my Husbands friend, he is a vet and it bought a smile to his face. the backgound is a photograph of some cows in the field.
