My First Baking Contest!

This past Saturday, I entered and won my first Baking Contest. It was a fun experience. I made a Vanilla Bean Butter Cake with a Lemon Curd & Blackberry filling and topped with Vanilla Bean Buttercream. I made everything myself, including the gumpaste decorations. I could have easily covered the cake in fondant, but I decided to challenge myself and finished it with buttercream.
