Pictures from the Competition

12 posts in this topic

This is my first attempt at not only taking photos of food, but also posting them to the egullet galleries. I would definitely appreciate any constructive criticism. I know that a couple of pictures are double posted, but I could not figure out how to delete the doubles.

The awards will not be until tomorrow, Sunday, Oct 10. I will try to designate which ones were the winners.

Here is the link - 2004 Oklahoma State Sugar Arts competition

There were a lot of pieces that I did not shoot. And the pictures represent an overview of not only masters entries, but subcatagory entries also. As soon as I figure them out, i will try to note on the photos which catagory they are in.

egullet member Kerry Vincent organizes this show every year and I think it is a pretty massive job that she does for Sugar Artists.

Wendy, it is my pleasure. I finally broke down and bought a camera and a nifty little device that makes transfering the pictures from the digital cards very easy. No plugging in the camera.

Plus, the event was excellent. There were students there from the Texas Culinary institute even.

Wow, just some amazing work there. And while I might not choose one of those cakes for myself, or even want to create something like that (the Addams family cake comes to mind), the level of detail and amount of skill and time that goes into creating these pieces is just mind-boggling.

As for that "jar of pickled peppers cake," just how do they get the cake to look transparent?? :huh::wacko::wink::biggrin:

I am in complete and utter awe.

Okay, I've got a question I have always wanted to ask. What do you do with the pieces after the show?
