Cultural Festival Cakes

Hello everyone!

It is this time of year again where having fun and enjoying everyone's talents has arrived... it was Cultural Festival on Thursday 15th!!!! Last year I posted some egg decorating skills and creations of mine, and on the Designer Cakes for Parties and Competitions page majority of the cakes are from last year's Cultural Festival. This year the theme of the event was 'Disney: Dare to Dream' and every cake suited this theme, as a result there are many Mickey Mouse faced cakes. I am proud to say that my Ariel Cake won third place! I am very pleased. Also the eggs that my friend and I created, the Royal Wedding Balcony Scene, won second place! In the pavement art section, I won first place for my Eeyore chalk drawing! On Cultural the various activities and competitions gain points that contribute towards your House score as well as your individual scoreboard. At the end of the day, the points are tallied and an overall individual winner for the Junior section and Senior section are announced and then the winning house is announced. Last year I was awarded third place in the Senior section, but this year I am the Cultural Festival Champion!!! I received first place for the Senior section!!!! Early next term there is a school Awards Night where various trophies, medals and ribbons are awarded to students for various reasons, such as academic excellence, dux of a subject, AND Cultural Festival Champion!!! This means I will receive a trophie and certificate as I walk onto the school stage!!! I am so excited and cannot wait!

In this post I will show you all of the competetors in the cake and egg decorating competition. On the next post I will provide step by step instructions to help you make your own award winning cake! Look out for next years last post about Cultural Festival, hopefully it will be another winning year!!! Enjoy baking all of those cakes and be creative as possible. I find it easy to just google a cake design and take ideas from various cakes to create your own masterpiece! Look at what others have done and just give it a go!

Happy Holidays!!!
