High on Sugar

On Tuesday evening at the Raleigh Convention Center, students from Wake Tech's Culinary Program were showing off their cooking, baking, cake decorating and ice carving skills.  As part of the entrance fee to the event, one received coupons that could be exchanged for samples of the many different foods being prepared.  I was part of the large crowd that showed up to partake.

Beautiful ice carvings.
There were mouth-watering displays of bread of all kinds. And not all the food being prepared were desserts.  I sampled the delicious white gazpacho served in shooters.

There were many beautifully decorated cakes and here is the one judges chose as the winner:
The blue ribbon cake.

For my samples I concentrated on the desserts.
Opera cakes.
Small chocolate chess pies.

Chocolate mousse.

I left with an appreciation of the talents of the students in the Wake Tech Culinary Program.  And a sugar high!
