Good luck GG. And you will do fine when you make it for the State Fair. Remember, you have folks from all over the globe rooting for you. We all want to be able to say, "I am friends with a State Winner!"

Thanks! Two more chocolate frosted cakes showed up. One has toasted marshmallows on top. I guess that's what's inside

Looks scrumptious! Good luck, GG. Can't wait to find out that you won. And since your entry is in baking, this theatre person is going to say "break a plate". Oh, wait, that's supposed to be .

Thanks again! Unfortunately, I didn't win. The two judges were split - one loved the frosting and one thought it was too strong. So, you can't please everyone's palate, but I learned a lot and had fun

Well, I think it looked splendid and a winner. In the County Fair game, there is always next year and now you have had some good practice.

Great job GG! It's fun entering contests with your creations. I've done it only a couple of times.
