The 2008 Oregon State Fair
Inside the Jackman Long Bldg

...continued from yesterday's post...

Rachel is being gross with the zucchini.
(She had a health class last year in school that taught her ... certain things about *ahem* aviary and apiary habits, shall we say?)

Frank is rolling his eyes at her.

Here is the hand written sign attached to the petting zoo sign:

Remember our friend Andi from the Seattle Road Trip? She worked at the fair (this was her last year) and the annual Vegetable Petting Zoo is her idea.

Each bottle cap is pried up, and you know what that means...
How would you like LOVE to be one of these judges?

Have you ever seen the tv show Ace of Cakes? This is the homegrown version of that kind of cake decorating and is one of our favorite things to see at the fair.

People are encouraged to vote for the Peoples' Choice Award. I voted for this wonky Christmas cake. Frank voted for a three layer cake covered in black and brown sheets of fondant, then each layer was painstakingly hand painted with a different animal print - cheetah, zebra, jaguar.

I had a double take when I saw the knife sticking out of this wedding cake, and the blood cascading down the side.

Check out the late bride and late groom on top.

Yes. Dead roses. Dark and dry and brittle.
With a dead bouquet.
And bugs crawling all over the cake.

Another fondant-covered cake a la Ace of Cakes. I thought this was really cute.

Beehive cake, originally uploaded by Adventures of Pam & Frank. be contined tomorrow...
