Apple cupcakes-2nd place

Chocolate macadamia nut pie-3rd place

Cherry pistachio-2nd place

Salted caramel apple pie

Winnings from the fair-cash, ribbons and prizes
I entered an apple cupcake with a spice cookie frosting- 2nd place, and the pies I entered were a salted caramel apple pie, chocolate macadamia nut pie- 3rd place, a cherry pistachio pie-2nd place, a tie for 1st place with myself  for most creative pie, and 1st place for the best pie crust. The 2012 DC State Fair will be here before you know it I need to start working on a prize winning apple pie. I can start dreaming of ribbons for next year!
