Aha! So I got your attention, didn't I?! Good, because I wanted to remind you that, as always, I'll be sponsoring and judging my namesake cookie decorating competition at this year's Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show, aka OSSAS, on September 28-30, 2018. It's the show's 25th anniversary, so founder and host Kerry Vincent is surely going to pull out all the stops! And so should you! It's not too early to start designing your competition entry!
Attached is a screen shot of the competition prizes and guidelines. More competition details can be found on the OSSAS site (pink link above) and also in this official set of show rules.
Best of luck to all who enter. Just be sure not to discuss your entry with me, or to show me any aspect of it at any time, as I need to maintain my judge's neutrality!
P.S. I wasn't kidding about the amazing cash prizes; they total nearly $2000, and I usually also supplement with added goodies!
