The South Carolina State Fair is in full swing. Running from October 14 to October 25, 2009,you will find exhibits on baking, canned goods, flowers, needlework, quilting, fine arts and agriculture. After participating in the pre-fair judging for the baking division, I took time to visit the decorated cakes entered this year and snapped a few photos. The entries get better and better each year. This is the first of four photo-posts, which will include mouthwatering a variety of breads and pies. Enjoy!
The cute scarecrow is drawing lots of attention at the fair.
Yes, this Palmetto bug is a decorated cake! After the initial “surprise” of seeing it, it was fun to watch everyone’s reaction to the cake. It is cleverly constructed and seems anatomically correct. Below is another shot.
