To see some close-ups of some fantastic cakes, click here. These are all real cakes and every decoration on the cake is edible and made of sugar.
After we inspected the cakes and new decorating paraphernalia, we toured the other exhibits. This was our first trip to the fair in years and I was surprized at the proliferation of food vendors since our last visit. Now you can see the latest new car models and take a few steps to the right and buy a corn dog. Next to the corn dog stand you can chat with the local tv weatherman then move a few feet down and get a funnel cake. Between the miraculous veggie slicer and the RV display you can find 18 lb. turkey legs, and so on down the line. It's no wonder Americans are so obese: there's more food on display than exhibits.
