Fortunately, the 53-year-old native of Copper Hill has learned much more over the years.
“I’ve probably baked 500 wedding cakes since then,” she said.
All that hard work and experience have earned Webster an exciting early Christmas gift: two tickets to see Buddy Valastro, aka the “Cake Boss,” at the Salem Civic Center this Sunday, as well as a meet-and-greet with the reality television star after the show.
Webster won the prize in our autumn cupcake contest because her design was deemed the best of the finalists by Valastro himself. The cupcake, which looks like a tiny wooden barrel stuffed with autumn leaves, was the miniature version of a wedding cake she was making in October, when she heard about the contest.
“The amount of detail shown in this cupcake is second to none,” Valastro said of Webster’s entry. “Job well done!”
