Hey! sorry for the short journal last night, i just wanted to let everyone know about my successes at the LTEC Competition! The event started at 6:30 Saturday and i was stressing out all day! My co-worker and i drove downtown to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh around 5:30p, her driving (on a permit with no one in the passenger's seat) and me in the trunk of her Van straddling my cake making sure nothing terrible happened! We got everything there in one piece and set up immediately. They didn't announce the winners until 9:15pm but we had a ton of cakes to taste and vote on for people's choice awards. When 9:15 arrived i was SO nervous. They announced the Amateur Category winners first and my stomach never settled. eventually they announced the winners of the Professional Category. And i pretty much won EVERY award in the Pro. Cat. Best Artistic Design, Best Overall Structure, and Best Cake Overall (out of all cakes entered). I about died! like holy crap! I'm barely 22 years old, 2 years out of pastry school and i rock the house and beat people that have been doing this for YEARRRRRSSSS! it makes me proud of myself, not to toot my own horn of anything haha!
So my other announcement is that i am going to make this page (Heidilu22) devoted to cakes ONLY! now i know some people (very few i assume) follow me for my photography and traditional art but i really feel like i need a separation between the two genre's. so don't be surprised when you start seeing my Traditional art things disappear! Ill post another journal about what my second page's name will be so you can watch me on there if you like my Traditional work.
any questions or concerns ask away!
And if i didnt say it already thanks to everyone for the support and congratulatory wishes on my cake! you all rock!
