Today started with me in the kitchen baking my very first cake for competition. This one was not about the decorations but it was all about HERSHEY'S COCOA. A chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

So I got out my favorite chocolate cake recipe and chocolate fudge frosting recipe. 4 hours later I had a cake ready to take to the local fair for the contest.

So off we went to the fair and registered the cake in the competition and then the waiting began. After two hours the judges had made their decision. And I got second place!!! I was super excited, my first competition and I got 2nd place along with a $20 prize.

I can now say I make wedding cakes. This was my very first wedding cake and all went well. I am thankful for a family that is supportive because I couldn't have done this without them.

There was chocolate cake, marble cake and white cake. Some with buttercream and raspberry filling and some just buttercream. All were covered with fondant!
