Confession 1 : I’m not that good of a cook. I can make a handful of things well but that’s about it.
Confession 2: I am fiercely competitive. Seriously, I told my boss her apple pie better bring it cause I was in it to win it.
That being said: My Oreo Balls (see recipe here) won first place at the School District Bake-off!
Contestants were scored on taste and consistency as well as presentation. I think that is where I wow-ed them. I am my father’s daughter after all and he was a master of presentation. As you can see, I made chocolate covered, white chocolate covered and peanut butter versions (those were actually a disaster looks-wise) of the oreo balls. The tray is actually my rubber stamp tray…..no worries it was very well cleaned before I put food on it. The frame is from my house (I added the bow) and the vase of flowers are from dollar tree. I was quite pleased with myself…..though I knew I went overboard in comparison (see below)
Yeah, that’s my creation in the middle.
I also received a gift card to Marie Callendars…..though I was informed they would have to tax it (Has anyone ever heard of taxing a prize before?) Whatevs……
