I had the pleasure to present a gift to Kerry Vincent at the OSSAS 25th Anniversary show. A crown for the Queen of cakes. Kerry knew as soon as she saw the hat box it was from one of her favorite millinery designer.

It was very nice to work with Reny to surprise Kerry.
Designer of the Crown is Reny Kestel Millinery from Australia.
September 30, 2018 I found out that the wedding cake show that I have participated in for 15 year has come to a end. This was the 25th year for the show and I am sad that won't be able to compete at this show any more, but I have been fortunate to have placed in the top ten, 13 out of my 15 years competing and that includes this year too.
Here is a closeup of some of the details that were on my 2018 cake. Everything is made out of sugar.
This is the finished cake.
Theme for this years show "Perfume".
My cake for the Grand National Wedding Cake Show was in the shape of spheres, adorned with Pink gum paste fantasy Flowers, tiny royal icing piping, gold details, including a gold chalice on top with flowers. After spending around 600 hours on this cake I was able to set in up at the OSSAS, Tulsa Oklahoma State Fair.
I was in the top 10 cakes, out of 80 other wedding cakes.

I coordinated this very large cake and with a number of Sugar Artistes/Cake Decorators. (Not only by adults but youth too.) It took us two days to complete this large cake. Very interesting to see the how other artistes created the fall theme idea.
We are very thankful for the Sponsors;
Satin Ice Fondant - fondant, Sweet Works - gum balls, Ateco - royal Icing and decorating supplies, Marvelous Mold for molds. Check out the links below.
