A TRIP to Ja­pan pro­vided the in­spi­ra­tion for Felic­ity Edwards’ award-win­ning dec­o­rated cake.

The Lath­lain res­i­dent gained the most points in the dec­o­rated cake sec­tion and won the ama­teur sec­tion for cel­e­bra­tion cakes at the Perth Royal Show for the cake, which in­cluded a geisha and flow­ers.

“I was in­spired by the cherry blos­soms and the geishas; I’ve al­ways loved flow­ers and leaves,” she said.

“The lead-up to the show in­cludes months of cook­ing, I don’t think ev­ery­one ap­pre­ci­ates the work that goes into it.”

Mrs Edwards said it was the sec­ond time she had en­tered the Show af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the stu­dent sec­tion for dec­o­rated cakes.

“I felt like I had noth­ing to lose, I had no ex­pec­ta­tions about win­ning last year or this year. but I love cook­ing and bak­ing and it was a bit of a chal­lenge,” she said.

“I’ve been a stu­dent at Cake Tinz and Thingz for three years and I’ve been learn­ing about the tech­niques you need to cre­ate dec­o­rated cakes.

“There were 41 peo­ple in the ama­teur sec­tion so to win was an amaz­ing feel­ing, I just couldn’t be­lieve it.”
