My name is Madhulika and first i want to congratulate and thank JJ for hosting this contest. I am into baking from last 1 year , I do cakes for friends and family only. I participated twice in the monthly competition of cakes we bake and many other contest and i regret about that, because i am an amateur and when my cake is not even anywhere close to the winners i feel disheartened and sometimes discouraged.
Contest like this should be hosted on monthly basis . Once again thankyou JJ.
This is a chocolate cake with buttercream frosting tinted with mostly brown and hint of red. I used a paper towel for the top look. There is certain amount of space left for inscription unfortunately i didn't took picture after writing the message. That's all i have.
that's a neat idea :)

My name is Ashleigh, and here is my entry for "JJ's Amateur All Occasion Cake Contest!" This cake was made from two 8" round vanilla cakes, filled and covered in a butter based butter cream frosting. I love the smells and colors of the Fall season, so I chose a Fall themed cake. The leaves, trees, and writing are all piped in butter cream. This cake was my final cake for the Wilton basic class.
My name is Anji Fisher, and here is my entry for "JJ's Amateur All Occasion Cake Contest!"
The cake is a yellow cake filled with strawberry jam and frosted with butter cream.
Hey folks! I'm Julie, and I live in the Great Smoky Mountains. I have been decorating for a whole 17 months now...LOL! I am completely self-taught. I've learned everything by watching/recording cake & cupcake shows on TV, researching the Internet, and from great people who are willing to share their knowledge on sites like CWB.
My entry cake was created for a New Year's Eve (2010-2011), in which the theme was "A Time for Change." The cake is homemade pina colada with homemade coconut flavored buttercream filling and icing. The "coins" are foil wrapped chocolates that I purchased.
Good luck to everyone!
