Let's Eat Cake! Mega Post!!!

So you know the results of the event - you've seen some pictures. But really - what about those moments. The ones that will live in my mind forever.

I'll tell you, one of my biggest fears was that we would have planned this huge event, had Kerry Vincent come to judge, had a great turn out of bakers, and then no one would show up, or it would only be my friends and family. Which would be wonderful. BUT.... you know, not the point of the event. And one moment, I remember hugging a dear friend, and then turning around just taking a moment to look around and realized I didn't recongize a single face. I got choked up... serioulsy humbling.

Another one of my favorite moments was the Cake Auction, we had the bestest Auctioneer, he's a farm auctioneer, and I'd explain the cake, set a price, and he'd talk so fast, it was like a movie, I wish I had it on video! But- my 2 1/2 year old nieces decorated (drew on a rolled out piece of fondant) and we auctioned those off. I promised my sister I'd start the bidding at $1...but I got carried away, and started it at $5... immediately, Stewart Powers bid $40, and soon those cupycakes, were selling for more than $60- I look over at my sister and she was all red eyed, and bawling... so I lost it a weee bit on stage... it was a very touching moment, and I'll never forget the feeling in my heart and how amazing humbled I felt.

My Nieces and their first appearance on stage:
I loved our details, I mean, really, we should have a strong attention for details, but here are some of my favorites!
Good Bags donated by Pure by Lindsey, PhoBooth, Me on the news, The amazing cakes that were for auction, Neal Leal winning Best of Show, Me chatting with the judges, my sister's cake, friends having fun, our amazing T-Shirts, the Drink Milks signs...
I've been writing for an hour, and I am still not done, and I've already cried 3 times... I think I'll save more for another day.

Melissa,

What was the final $$ donation to St. Jude's? I looked all through your blog and the "Let's Eat Cake" blog and can't find the info.

Sincerely,
Judy
