2010 Panhandle Cake C.R.U.M.B.S. Competition

As I promised, here are a lot more photos from this past weekend’s 2010 Panhandle Cake C.R.U.M.B.S. Cake Decorating Competition. The theme this year was fairy tales so it was fun seeing all the stories represented in sugar!


In addition to the cake decorating competition, they had:

  • a bake sale to benefit the Ronald McDonald House
  • a kid’s cookie decorating table (see photo below)
  • a one-tip decorating contest
  • various demonstrations
  • a cake tasting competition
  • and a demonstration by Linda McClure on how to use the Cricut machine to decorate cakes!

Oh yea, now that’s a fun, yummy-looking cookie!

To get this photo, I sneaked up behind 3 of the judges as they began to inspect the first cake in the Adult Professional Division.

And now on to the main event! Here are the winners of each category:

Children’s Division:
1st place – Kendal Motley; Tinkerbell
2nd place – Natalya Bragg; Cinderella
3rd place – Michael Posey; The Little Mermaid

Youth Division:
1st place – Ashley Woods; Rapunzel
2nd place – Bailey Motley; The Little Mermaid
3rd place – Megan Crooke; The Princess & the Pea
4th place – Roselynn Mack; Sleeping Beauty

Adult Novice Division:
1st place – Debra Fallo; Cinderella
2nd place – Christine Gaston; Rapunzel
3rd place – Lydia Farmer; The Three Little Pigs

Adult Advanced Division:
1st place – Kathy Spalding; The Old Woman in the Shoe*
2nd place – Rhonda Pulley; The Princess & the Pea


Adult Professional Division:
1st place – Melanie Judge; Shrek**
2nd place – Shanon Motley; A Fisherman’s Fairytale***
3rd place – Michele Swann; The Bee & the Orange Tree

This Sleeping Beauty was one of my favorites! Perhaps it’s because Aurora is my favorite Disney Princess…but most likely it’s because Sharon did such an amazing job on the cake!


And here’s another of my favorites from the show. Margaret Stutsman made this gorgeous Alice in Wonderland cake. The color was absolutely perfect, don’t you think?! But it was the small details, like the ornate key, the cupcakes, and the teapots, that really won me over.

The amazing members of the Panhandle Cake C.R.U.M.B.S. are already planning next year’s competition. And the theme? The 60s!

**Hey, that’s me! I also won People’s Choice and Best of Show!
***And Shanon also won Decorator’s Favorite!

  1. YOU HAVE POSTED AND LABELED THE PICTURES INCORECTLY. NATALYA BRAGG DID THE CINDERELLA CAKE IN THE CHILDRENS DIVISION WINNING 2ND PLACE AND ROSELYNN MACK DID THE SLEEPING BEAUTY CASTLE CAKE IN THE YOUTH DIVISION WINNING 4TH PLACE. THE PICTURES NEED TO BE REVERSED.

  2. Thank you for pointing this out! I have reversed the cake photos so they should be correct now. :)
