Hi, I got an email that one of my photographs were featured in the Figure Piping Contest photographs, but I do not see it. It is labelled as "Figure Piping Contest - Chicks".
You should see it now.

Just a reminder we are coming to the end of this contest!! If you've entered a photo by changing the name to "Figure Piping Contest", but it isn't showing up in the featured photos, please message me so I can go in and add it! Thanks!
It is my understanding that figure piping is a 3-D character piped in icing, usually, but not always, done with a variety of straight writing tips, not a flow-in or starred-in flat pattern done on a cake.
