Life is Sweet







I'm on a learning curve with this computer so I'm slow posting.
Continuing on with the KY State Fair, which ends today, I wanted to post about the sweet things there. Well, the ones I looked at anyway. I always like looking at the decorated cakes, pies, breads, cookies, candy, brownies..... Always wishing I was a judge. Can you get tired of taste-testing sweets??
I didn't take a lot of pictures but here is a cute beehive cake. Wasn't that a lot of work to get all of those details just so with that icing? It was a prize winner. The picture is from the back of the cake. The line was long to see the front. I thought it was just as lovely from my vantage point.
This interesting Neapolitan cake was the grand prize winner. You can read an article and get the recipe here. I thought it was clever. Evidently, tasty, too!
My sister, Richey, is a big fan of cotton candy. Maybe the only thing she likes better is an elephant ear from Plehn's Bakery. She buys a couple dozen of those when in town. I think they last until about Nashville on the ride home (three hours away). I took these photos for her thinking she'd like them, but no, she just wanted cotton candy all the more!
This is the woman who loves Cap'n Crunch with whipped cream.

What a SWEET post. The cotton candy photo is great. I bet the vendor wondered what the heck you were doing. Nice idea to take pictures of the sweet treats. Now I can't get this visual out of my mind....Richey all sticky and messy in her car from eating elephant ears, but with a big happy look of satisfaction on her face.
