Chocolate eclairs are one of Jon's favorite desserts. So, I decided to make some for him to take to a pot luck lunch at work. I'm sure they'll go fast. After I made the eclair shells I made some homemade cream filling (basically a cooked pudding), frosted them with chocolate frosting and added a special touch by putting a rosebud on each one.

The good news is...I won a first place ribbon with this cake at the Salt Lake County Fair.
The bad news is...so did everyone else (except the ONE entry who got 2nd place).
It was still a fun experience to enter a cake at the county fair. I know if I do it again my cake will have to be on a grander scale to win any of the "real prizes" (i.e. Sweepstakes, Best of Show, Judges Favorite, or High Blue). The cakes that were there were amazing.
My friend, Amber Halversen, and her family came from southern Arizona to Provo for BYU graduation. They stayed with us one night and it just happened to be her twin girls' birthday! I was happy I had the chance to make a cake for them. I used whipped cream frosting and edible images. It was my first time using edible images and I thought they worked great. Thanks for letting me be a part of Morgan and Annika's birthday!
