    So glad you entered a food contest. That is a primary reason why we have County Fairs in the first place. Home and Hobby is the “Heart of the Fair”. The booklet listing contests and entry requirements is out in March at your local library. I suppose information is on the website then also.

    I live in Costa Mesa. I am looking for inspiration something that is my passion. I have always liked baking and always wanted to be apart of a craft fair or contest of sorts. I have always managed to talk myself out of it thinking my baking wasn’t good enough. Came across what you wrote and I do believe I’m ready to take the leap.

    That’s great to hear, Kathy! I was really reluctant for a long time but I was really glad I entered. Even though I didn’t win it was fun to try it out, make the cupcakes, and enter the contest. I highly recommend it, even if it’s just for the experience and trying it out. You never know, you might just win, too! Good luck!
