A local bakery is winning awards for more than just its flavorful treats. Quality Bakery in Fargo can now say its cake decorating talent is right up there with its baking.
Camille Anderson – Cake Decorator: “They - being Pete and Marcine - told us there was a cake decorating competition and I got pretty excited, because I am kind of new at this.”
Camille Anderson means it when she says she's a new comer. She's only been decorating cakes for less than two years.
Camille Anderson: “This is my part time job through college, but it was pretty exciting, because I guess I am more natural at it then I think, I didn't take any classes or anything.”
Now after those short few years her work has already won her a gold medal for this colorful and intricate layered cake covered with suckers and stars.
Camille Anderson: “I looked at pictures in different books and picked out different ideas that I liked, and then I just started doing it.”
It took Anderson just twenty short hours from the start - the planning and design phase - to this award winning finish.
Camille Anderson: “I came up with the colors, the stripes, and the dots and all of that stuff on my own.”
Pete Fendt, the owner of quality bakery says he couldn't be happier for Anderson, but also Barb Cossette who won a gold medal for this wedding cake.
Pete Fendt – Owner, Quality Bakery: “There is a lot of artistic talent in here and that is what really came out in the cakes is the fact that you know both of them were, there is a lot of skill.”
There were nearly 50 cakes in the entire Upper Midwest Bakery convention competition, and as for next year it looks like Fendt will have some more medals to bring home.
Camille Anderson: “I would love to keep decorating and entering more competitions.”
Anderson also won the people’s choice award for her cake. Both of these gold medal cakes are on display at quality bakery.
