I.C.E.D. Cake Competition

For those of you that missed our last meeting and could not attend the I.C.E.D. Cake Competition, I have added all the pictures here for your viewing pleasure! You're welcome!

There were many lovely wedding cakes, cupcakes, and gumpaste accessories to see. Our very own member, Patrice entered her signature piece, a mask, along with some gorgeous flowers and a beautiful pearl necklace (not to mention the stand) into the professional category for the wedding accessories, and she took home the Grand Prize! Congratulations was well deserved! Just look how amazing her piece was...
