2008 Minnesota State Fair: Spice Cake
(bottom shelf, right side, red ribbon)
Cakes with Shortening: Spice Cake lot: 2nd place
I started making this cake about 7 years ago, when my dad requested it for his birthday. I entered this category on a whim, and was very pleasantly surprised with the 2nd place ribbon. (The winning cake was made by the Supreme Baker of the Fair, which is the competitor who earns the most points for their entries.) This cake scored very well. The frosting appearance was very smooth, and the layers were even.
