the 2015 NC State Fair in Raleigh NC. The Cakes....

Below are photos of some of the 2015 cake contenders along with quotes and stats found online.

The term "cake" has a long history. 
The word itself is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse word "kaka".
Another great season of decorated cakes at the NC State Fair.  Such talent.  Wish I had that ability. When I bake a cake I like to make a sheet cake because it is easier to spread the frosting:-)
Get out and explore.  You never know what you may find.
