I was talking to my dad yesterday and he suggested posting all of my cakes and baking things I have done. I don't want to just do a post full of pictures. For one thing it would take forever for the pictures to load :) and also everything I've done has been an adventure in itself. Whether the reason behind the project or a new technique I figured out, they all have a little story behind them. So I will slowly add my older things in amongst the new ones. And so I dug out my high school photo album and found this picture from either grade 10 or 11, can't remember anymore. But I entered this cake in our Fall Fair and it won first place. I was so proud of this cake. I heard about the contest category the day before entry's were due and got my parents to go out and get all the things I needed and was up very late getting it ready to enter. The book I had told me to use a pound cake, but that took a lot of ingredients that I didn't want my parents to have to buy so we made a brownie...which we ended up burning...good thing taste wasn't part of the judging! Now to clarify a bit about the "competition", I could just leave it at "I won 1st place" and have you think I took the competition my storm (haha), but truth be told we lived in a very small town and there was only 2 other cakes entered... But now you have seen my very first cake!
