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.”
