We'd petted the animals, we'd eaten our fill, and soon it was time to move onto dessert.
We had a quick look in the gardening pavilion first...
then a brief rest at the woodchopping arena...
before we finally reached the hallowed temple for every Domestic Goddess within: the judging display area for baked goods, fruit cakes, decorated cakes and awe-inducing sugar art.

The display cases with noteworthy entries in the cake decorating competition were surrounded by an appreciative crowd. There were some amazing concoctions, the decorations made only with icing sugar, glucose, gelatine, water and food colouring. How to decorate a cake? A little patience and a lot of practise, by the looks of things.
