State Fair Blog 2017 & 2018
Notifications, Winner Announcements, and more
First of all I am excited to finally make time to start this blog. We need a place to keep an archive of past competitions including photos and competition results. I will do my best to keep it up to date.
I have made a couple of changes to the rules for 2017. The most notably is the update on the FDA's recommendations for use of edible glitters on cakes. I will be posting the information and links here and on my business page soon.
This is the third year for the new staff running the State Fair Grounds and the team running the Creative Living Department. This year they are working hard to getting the website information with the handbooks etc. current and ready to go as early as possible. Our first meeting of the year was delayed due to weather but we are all working hard behind the scenes to get things rolling for the 2017 Fair.
Our meeting is scheduled for February 16th. I will post more information about the competition after the meeting.

This is where I will be posting the latest information on the Oregon State Fair Cake Decorating and Confectionery Arts Competition. As the chair I want to promote the competition, encourage people to enter, and educate everyone interested about cake and confectionery arts.
