And here's another of my favorites from the show. Margaret Stutsman made this gorgeous Alice in Wonderland cake. The color was absolutely perfect, don't you think?! But it was the small details, like the ornate key, the cupcakes, and the teapots, that really won me over.
The amazing members of the Panhandle Cake C.R.U.M.B.S. are already planning next year's competition. And the theme? The 60s!
