Related: About this forum# Here's the first cake I did for the Illinois State Fair.

I'm entering 2 in the decorating contest this year. Have about a week to finish the second one.

This is a cartoon cake and I got the design from Pinterest.

Note I wrote "can be served" and not "edible."

(83,453 posts)I love the little "drips" and "drops" of "frosting". Looks "good enough to eat", even though I'd hate to see it cut open, cuz it's too beautiful to eat. It should be on display somewhere. That would be SO perfect for a cartoonist's reception or art exhibition!

Glad you took photos!
