New York Cake Convention

I made a cake for a contest posted on the Daring Bakers forums, the Daring Kitchen, in conjunction with the US Confection Connection, is putting on the contest for the NY Cake Convention. The cake had to be the decorator's interpretation of Autumn. The winning cake gets to go to the convention in NY, expenses paid.

For me, Autumn is all about the colors, the boldly painted leaves on the ground. Mostly, they need to be on the ground so that I can step on them. Also: TURKEYS. I love turkeys. Cartoon-y turkeys, though; real turkeys are ugly.

Here is my cake!


  1. You did an amazing job with your Fall cake. Kudos to you!

  2. Wow your cake leaves are stunning!

  3. Oh, my, it looks incredible! Love the leaves. Love the acorns. Love the turkey! :)

  4. Where Are you? Have not seen a new post. I must see what you are working on!
