Years ago I went to the Cairns show (the only time I had been) and remember looking at the baking section and thinking, hey, I could beat that. So, this year I put my actions where my thoughts were and went for it and it turned out to be quite a fun experience. So here are the winners. I just had to enter the packet cake section...like how hard can that be? Note to self: don't try cooking a cake while studying! I burnt the bottom of the cake so chopped the bottom off and still ended up getting first. The thing is...that chocolate cake to the left looked real good and I would eat it before I would eat my cake
I got second in the damper. It didn't quite turn out like a damper but rather as a large scone. The mixture got a bit too wet and the outside didn't chrisp up like it should have.
Second for pikelets...nanna would be so proud. It was her recipe
I also entered some of my photographs just to see how they would go in a competition and I must say I was thrilled to even get placed. It seems I have a couple of friends who are willing to take me on next year.
