Decorating for the Fair

Several weeks ago, Sophie and her girlfriends gathered at the little house to decorate cakes for the Oregon State Fair.  They decided to enter the birthday cake competition and needed to complete their cakes almost a month before the actual fair (and by cake I mean Styrofoam cake mold).

By some rude trick of nature, it was the hottest day of the summer with temperatures reaching 100 degrees.  Since the little house is . . . little, we spent most of the morning working on the back deck on folding tables before the heat drove us indoors.

The girls chose a Mario theme for their cakes and had a great time rolling fondant and making a huge mess.  The final cakes were adorable and all three deserve to take home first prize!  We are headed to the fair tomorrow to see their cakes and the judging.



*** Update***
So, a bit of sad news.  We checked out the cakes at the fair and none of the girls received a ribbon.  In fact, there were no ribbons awarded in the kids group and I am not sure why.  FAIL Oregon State Fair.  Oh well, the girls still had a great time and I think they all deserved a blue ribbon!
