sewing basket cake
More of a fondant sculpture than an actual cake.
NC State fair cake decorating competition.
(UPDATE: Now that this photo, years after it wa taken, has suddenly been picked up by the cakehead blogs, people who don't know me and are unaware that every single year I go and take photos of the cakes in the NC State Fair cake competition are thinking I made this myself, and are apparently getting indignant when they find out I didn't and acting like it's some sort of crime that I didn't write that in the caption. So: No, I didn't make this cake. I don't even know who did. I did, however, take the picture.)
