Last weekend my wife entered a cake contest at our local church. She asked me to help her make it the night before, and so I know some of the ingredients, but not all. Most are in her head, as she has such a culinary background that she can walk through a cooking or baking project without a recipe throwing in ingredients completely from scratch and create a masterpiece.
This one was entirely organic, and it included graded apples (personally labored over my me) and organic flour, cocoa, cane sugar and the glaze was a mixture of agave necture, cocoa and sprinkles of coconut. There were also some crushed brazil nuts, and macadamian nuts in and outside of this wonderful creation. There were other ingredients she used after I left the kitchen, so I cannot tell the whole tale here.
She entered into the contest to help, and make sure they had enough entries, but she never expected to win best overall! That is what she did. She won best overall. She of course to this date she does not understand why, but being a fan, I think the photo is obvious. What do you think? I'd offer you a taste, but alas, all we brought home from the contest was the tray. Sad. Very sad.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain
