It’s Pi Day!

Something devious was a foot at the Geauga County Fair in Burton, Ohio earlier this week. In addition to rides, funnel cakes, and animal exhibits, the fair featured close to 1,500 exhibits in the baked goods category.

Footprints in the frosting led investigators to conclude that a raccoon had helped him or herself to samples from the Best in Show exhibit indicating that the critter has good taste.

“Critter or critters unknown, favored yeast bread, miscellaneous bread (actual categories), muffins, scones, strawberry-surprise pie, chocolate cake, and in the men’s category: peach pie.”

Who am I kidding?  These amazing creations are by Iven Kawi . . .

“Jakarta-based pastry chef Iven Kawi says she made her first honest attempt at baking in December of 2013 when she made a batch of Christmas cookies for her daughter’s school. As you can see, things have progressed quite a bit. Kawi now runs a bakery shop out of her home in Lippo Karawaci called Iven Oven where she creates elaborately decorated baked goods. Among her specialties are cakes adorned with terrarium environments where buttercream frosting is sculpted into an abundance of cacti and flower petals atop beds of crumbly sand or dirt. You can follow more of her work on Instagram. “
