And the winner is…

The 2012 Architectural Cake Contest champion was  Edwardo Rhodes.


Edwardo’s cake was a magnificent representation of Indiana University’s Bryan House.

There was a little tension when Mistress of Ceremonies Cheryl Munson cut into the roof and found an empty attic with a floor that resisted her knife’s edge. Had this baker used plywood? Would he be disqualified for using a material edible only by rats and bacteria? To our great relief, we discovered that the key to this house’s hyper-erect standing was gum paste, a substance previously unknown to most of us.

Congratulations, Dr. Rhodes, on a fabulous creation!
