"What do you call a country where everyone drives pink cars?"
Get it? A PINK CAR NATION!
My cake was a basket of gumpaste carnations. I think I made 50 of them!
My basket of carnations sat upon a 12" x 16" slab cake with the joke written on it. Around the sides of the cake were cars in varying shades of pink. Here's the finished product...
Not my best work, but I thought it was a pretty fun cake and a clever interpretation of the theme. Not to mention, pink and green are among my favorite color combinations.
Once again, the judges do their thing. Once again, the judges discuss their preference for buttercream. They announce the 3rd place cake. It's this one...
And in first place...
Lessons learned? PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU'VE ALREADY LEARNED!! I knew, from last year, that this contest doesn't favor creativity and thinking outside the box. Remember all those barns? No matter, I still liked my cake and my concept and I'll wow 'em next year!
As always, thanks for allowing me to share. Next up, another Wilton/Michael's Challenge in October, 2010.
