Con­grat­u­la­tions on win­ning the spe­cial prize of the Ok­la­homa State Sugar Art Show last month.

Thank you. I am very happy that I suc­cess­fully com­peted in the show. I chal­lenged my­self in the Grand Na­tional Wed­ding Cake Com­pe­ti­tion.

Were there any cakes like yours which fea­tures tra­di­tional cul­ture?

There weren’t. Most of the cakes were very fancy wed­ding cakes. The Ok­la­homa State Sugar Art Show gives a theme for the com­pe­ti­tion. This year’s theme was “Perfume”. That’s why I de­cided to show a queen’s dress, which shows Mon­go­lian cul­ture and cus­tom. Some cake de­sign­ers pre­pare for this com­pe­ti­tion for a year. I pre­pared for the com­pe­ti­tion for 10 days when I was in Wash­ing­ton DC. Then I went to Ok­la­homa. Forty per­cent of my cake was dam­aged when I reached Ok­la­homa. I was so ner­vous and started fix­ing the cake. This is when I un­der­stood that time is very pre­cious.

I did fix my cake just be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion.

Of course, the other con­tes­tants must have com­mented on your cake. What did they say?

They said my cake was unique and dif­fer­ent from oth­ers. They also talked about my deel, which I was wear­ing. They said Mon­go­lian tra­di­tional cos­tume, deel, was very nice.

I am the first con­tes­tant of Mon­go­lia to take part in the show.

In 2015, I also rep­re­sented Mon­go­lia at the In­ter­na­tional Cake Ex­plo­ration So­ci­ety for the first time. The or­ga­niz­ers and con­tes­tants wel­comed me with warm greet­ings.
