It's been a while since I entered a cake contest, the last time was a cupcake contest back in March 2009. This time around, it actually wasn't a "cake" contest... but I thought making a cake just might win it.
Earlier this month, BlogTO, in partnership with the Royal Ontario Museum, held a photography contest to Win a free iPad2. The theme was based off of David Hockney's Fresh Flowers exhibit which features Hockney's and also hundreds of other artist's sketches displayed on iPhones and iPads.
I knew that I wouldn't be able to compete in a photography contest, but after looking through some of his sketches, it inspired me to create a cake! Here is the photo that I chose:
wedding cake design was inspired by one of the paintings.
A few days before Christmas, I found out that I WON the iPad! I was so excited and I can't wait to see the ROM exhibit. Since it was an online contest, I also got to enjoy the 4-layer vanilla butter cake. :-)
