What a busy weekend it has been! Summer was here for the briefest of moments and now we are back to rain and clouds, hopefully not for too much longer.  Last week was super busy with more baking and getting my submissions ready for the Alameda County Fair which started last Wednesday.  I submitted 2 things, both of which won first place!

which not only won first place but was also the Judge’s Favorite! There is more judging to come this week but my daughter and son-in-law found these when they went on Sunday.  Here’s to hoping for a few more wins!

Also this weekend was the NASCAR race up in Sonoma, CA.  I have been going to the races for many years and this year was fortunate enough to bake cupcakes for one of the teams. Wanting to bring my A-game, I took three classics: Image

This week I plan to be baking more (imagine that) and also working on my submission video to Hell’s Kitchen.  If you guys have any crazy or fun ideas you think would work in my video, leave me a comment.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to post my video but just know that it will be epic.
