A Word

From Another Competitor

” This was my first every competition entry at the Cake International Show back in 2012. It was far from perfect but I was so happy with my first ever Bronze. I didn’t stop there because I wanted to get Silver..and then Gold…and so I worked hard for it until I got them. It opened a lot of opportunity for me…and the rest is history. “
