Oklahoma Sugar Art Show and Grand National Wedding Cake Competition 2016


One event I try to never miss is the Oklahoma Sugar Art Show at the Tulsa State Fair. it is only two days so if you snooze you lose. This year I couldn’t go Saturday so like a pagan heathen I went Sunday. Lots less pushing and shoving if you you Sunday I found out but there is still a lot of people.


The theme this year was “Mad for Metallics” so there was a metallic theme to the entries. My favorite cake was this Steam Punk themed cake. All sorts of gears and pipes and such.


Here is a detail. Marvelous is what I say.


I loved this gardening themed piece with the butterfly.


And this Winnie the Pooh themed item with the Pooh and the bee hive.


And this was absolutely gorgeous.


And these gears,


And these happy flowers. I wonder if they are a bit creepy though.


And there were a couple of Day of the Dead pieces also. That day is fast becoming my favorite holiday. Now I am sounding creepy.


And a mask, I love masks. There used to be lots of mask entries but they are so fragile.


And a classic beautiful piece.


I love the lattice work. How do they do that?


And a Victorian themed cake.

    We were on vacation this year in TN so, once again, I failed to go to the Sugar Arts Show. It is my favorite part of the fair. I did enter six photos in the fair, but I won’t know how I did until I pick up the images after the fair.

    I look forward to attending this event (virtually). Those artists outdid themselves this year. I think the classic Damascene Gold would have to be my favorite but it would be hard to choose — can’t imagine judging actually! We have appreciated the Day of the Dead celebnration ever since we spent three or four Fallk/Winter s seasons near the border (thankfully before there was a fence).

    How do they do this? I agree, my favorite is the Steam Punk. I also look forward to you going to the Sugar Art Show. Do you get to sample at the end of the day? 😉
