Two years ago I went to the fair and talked to a lady about baking and entering baked goods into the fair. I had never thought of entering anything before. Last year I signed up to enter cupcakes. I ended up coming up with chocolate-orange cupcakes with orange buttercream. I thought they were pretty good (the cake part tasted exactly like chocolate covered orange peels) but I didn't really think I'd win anything. I mainly just did it for fun. Turns out the judges thought they were pretty good and I ended up getting third place. Well....this year I decided to do it again. This year I made chocolate-coconut cupcakes with coconut-pecan frosting. I knew they tasted alright but I didn't really think I was going to win anything. I guess I'm a little too hard on myself because....I got first place! I guess I should go ahead and start figuring out flavors for next year.
