Perth Royal Show 2007, Part 8

Continuing on with the Show photos…

This was one of my favourite areas of the Show – the cooking exhibit. On the day we went, the cakes and other baked goodies were on display. First, some original wedding cakes…

I liked the minature champagne on this cake.

Although they didn’t have red hair, this bride and groom made me think of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy.

Reminds me of Raggedy Ann and Andy

A trio of dolly cakes.

I think this was an Aladdin/genie in a bottle-style of cake. Not sure exactly.

Aladdin - I think

Here’s a scene from Cinderella:

I liked this drunken footy fan cake.

This cake depicted a famous scene from Alice in Wonderland – the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, complete with widely grinning Cheshire Cat perched on a tree branch on the right.

I believe these are Nike cake shoes.

This was my favourite – Homer Simpson on a giant iced donut with sprinkles, with little beer cans strewn about. You know, if I had time, I’d love to make cakes like this.

This display made me really crave a piece of fruit cake.

And a selection of sauces…


After looking at the baked goods, we went next door to see the displays by the Department of Agriculture. Upon arrival, we were given a sample of fresh ruby orange to try. It was lovely, very sweet and juicy. So lovely in fact I was tempted to walk by and grab another!

The Gerbera Society had their own display there…

We then spent some time checking out the West Australian country regional displays. This was the Midwest region’s display.


This one was the South West region’s display.

I love looking at these displays but there’s so much to take in visually – I always wish I could jump the barricades and actually get right in there and touch stuff, and climb up to get close to the stuff at the top. But of course, I’d probably start a landslide.

These boots are made for working


I can’t remember which region this was a part of – I thought the pet rocks were too cute! And the various eggs next to them were pretty interesting.

The Coastal region…

…and the Gascoyne region.


I really need to see more of Western Australia. Got money, no time; got time, no money. Grrrr.
