Utah's Grand Wedding Cake Competition Entry - Italian Opera House Cake


Utah's Grand Wedding Cake Competition Entry - Italian Opera House Cake
The theme this year was Italian Romance. I had really debated whether or not to enter this year. Then I came up with two different ideas that I thought would be so much fun to do. I only had 3 days to get it all put together, but I am really so glad that I did it. I would have loved to have time to make roses to fill the space where the pillars are, and to make more table decor, but I was happy to at least be able to present a finished cake. I was not expecting to place at all, this being my first year entering and competing against so many amazingly talented and trained cake artists, but I got an Honorable Mention! I also got the Judges award for Best Use of Theme and the Utah's Choice award for Impeccable Skill. I was so giddy! I was humbled by the amount of talent there and met so many wonderful people who I hope to get to know better in the near future. My heart felt thanks goes out to my brilliant sister-in-law who talked me into doing this and made it possible for me to participate. Love you Jeanene!!
