This weekend was the Seafood Festival 2011
here in town. It is a huge celebration of the
biggest industry in southeast Alaska--
There were 2 very well known chefs that
attended and prepared a 5 course gourmet
meal. The dinner was sold out and they
held a cake competition during the dinner.
Our theme was Ocean Dreams and the
cakes needed to be at least 2 tiers and
serve 40 people minimum.
The cakes were served as the dessert
course for everyone and the winner received
a $75.00 gift certificate to a store in town,
plus recognition and pictures in the paper.
Here is my cake that came in 2nd place:
I made the glass ball and bubbles out of
gelatin, as well as the seaweed. The sand
was sugar and the grass is buttercream. The
cake was 100% edible.
The winning cake:
It was fun, but lots and lots and lots of time!
The rest of the weekend was really busy with
fishing and a picnic that I will post about
tomorrow when I have a bit more time.
