The 09 ICES conferene just finished in Illinois. It was fantastic!! I have never seen so many expectacular cakes in one place. Congratulations to the Venezuelan team - you had by far the best cakes of all!! Followed by Dominican Republic and Argentina. I am attaching here some of my favorites - I will truly try to make my own adaptations of some of these beautiful designs... I am already thinking of a beautiful fairy cake for my little girl.
