I Say Go For It!
The 2012 Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show is being held on September 29 and 30 at the Tulsa State Fair. The theme is "Headgear, Hats, and Headbands," and even Sixty Minutes Australia is going to be there this year!
Daphne went once before, but she saw all the cakes there and got intimidated. She has a little bit of a self-confidence problem, you know. Anyway, she gave her cake to the hotel staff, and withdrew from the competition.
Granted, there are some beautiful cakes at the show (I've included a couple pictures from the show's website below), but Daphne does good work. Would she have won? Maybe not, but the experience would have been good for her.
Isn't this cake GORGEOUS? You might think it was the winner, but it wasn't. This cake, make by Rebecca Sutterby of Kansas, was 4th, Honorable Mention.
The one to the right here was made by Cheri Elder of Missouri, and it didn't even place. But who can deny how intricate and beautiful this cake is?
That's what I keep trying to tell Daphne. Yes, you know the competition is tough. But, in order to grow, you have to put yourself out there...take a risk or two....
What do you think? Better yet, how do you get your friend to believe in herself and take a chance?
