The top cash prize went to Mrs. Bernard Kanago, from Webster, South Dakota. She entered "My Inspiration" cake and won the Grand National 1st prize and a big check for $25,000 dollars. I may make it someday. Mrs. Bernard says "A quick mix white cake, with a chocolate surprise that gives two layers a glamorous four-layer looks". photo of the winning cake.
The rainbow cookies are from the Junior entrees. These came from Audrey Sassetti, Oak Park, Illinois. I had issues with the cookie batter and ending up changing things around a bit. I am not posting that recipe. The cookies are just a basic rolled sugar recipe. This link is for a nice rolled sugar cookie.
I made the dough then I divided the dough into 4 sections and added food coloring paste of different colors. Adding just a little at a time and mix. You can always add more. You can see on the photo's how I made these. I rolled my dough into 23 inch ropes and the ropes were 1/2 inch thick on a floured dough board. I placed them side by side and then rolled with the rolling pin to 1/8 inch thick. I used a 2 1/2 inch square cookie cutter. Keep all the extra dough and reuse. Alternate colors for different color patterns.
