Cakes and Sugarcraft Magazine have just published the FIVE cake finalists in their 100 iconic cakes series and I am honoured that you, the voting public, have chosen my dragon cake as one of these finalists!
My dragon was originally created as a competition piece for a salon culinaire competition – at the time he won best in class, which I was thrilled with as he was my first salon culinaire competition piece! Today, I am pleased to say that he still sits in a cake box on top of my wardrobe. A little faded and dusty perhaps, but still complete.
Iconic cake finalists
If you are not familiar with the magazine series, over the last 4 issues the magazine has looked back over its first 100 issues and chosen one cake from each issue. Readers were then asked to vote for their favourite cake from the 25 featured. The current magazine – issue 106, autumn 2009 – features the finalists:
Issues 1-25 (tied winners) – ‘Spoilt for choice’ by Debbie brown & ‘Specimen rose’ by Tombi Peck
Issues 26-50- ‘Lindy’s dragon’ by Lindy Smith – that’s me!
Issues 52-71 – ‘A musical birthday cake’ by Julie Collins
Issue 76-100 – ‘It’s Christmas at the North pole’ by Joan Simper
Vote now for the most Iconic cake
Readers of the magazine are now being asked to vote for who they think should win the accolade of designing the most iconic cake. All the cakes are featured in the current magazine. Full instructions for the winning cake will be published in the next issue of Cakes and Sugarcraft.
If you’d like to vote for my dragon or any other of the fabulous cakes featured remember to enter before the 25th September 2009 – there is a prize of over £350 to be won!
