Rebecca won the grand prize this past weekend at OSSAS! A HUGE congratulations goes out to her - I'm so proud of her!! She usually places in and around the tip top, but has never won the grand prize. Here's a photo of her winning cake!
Rebecca is my idol! (OK, I don't mean to sound creepy! - but she is!) When I first started out in cake decorating, and surfing the internet for inspiration - I found "Sugar Creations" (www.sugarcreations.com) and instantly fell in love with her cakes. Her style fits me to a "T"! I would study her cakes and designs and try and incorporate these techniques and beautiful colors, into my work. I first met Rebecca at OSSAS a few years ago, and was just SO thrilled to shake her hand and tell her how much I admired her work. I was fortunate enough to take a class with her - in Kansas, back in 2007 (w/ my friend and follow decorator - Lisa!) Rebecca's work has earned her much recognition in the past years, she's been on FoodTV's "Challenge" and she's was featured in "Bride" magazine back in February, as one of the "50 Most Beautiful Cakes". She is not only an extremely talented decorator, but she is the sweetest and most down to earth person! Winning OSSAS couldn't have happened to a better person!
I can say... "I knew her when..." !!
...and congratulations to you Shelly on your "silver" win!
Can't wait to see a picture!
