WRAL.com at the State Fair


Posted October 16, 2010

I know I mentioned this last year, and I don't like to repeat myself, but I have to: do not miss the cakes in the cabinet displays.

The cakes in the open display at one end of the Education Building are from the professional and amateur contests, and they're great. (There's always a huge line waiting to see them!) But those cakes are not all the cakes. The cabinet displays contain entries from the junior decorating contests, and they're also excellent.

Highlights this year include a Monopoly board, a cake showing the best of NC (including donuts and Cheerwine) and a dress cake that had so  many ribbons and flowers that I'm awe of a) the person who made it and b) the person who got it to the Fair and into the display case without anything getting messed up.

I've uploaded a few picture highlights here, but you can see my full set of cake goodness at the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/wralfair/sets/72157625053232975/">Fair Fanatic Flickr Stream</a>.

    I'm a little confused. Did that Nemo fish cake beat the cake with the bunny and the basket? I see a ribbon next to that cake. Also, the sheet cake with the stream? Both have ribbons next to them but there are other cakes on that table with more intricate and detailed design. Just sayin'
