Friday Journal: Daughter In Major Cake Competition!

Happy Weekend!

Tonight at 6:30pm, my lovely daughter, Heaven Balsamo, will be competing in a major cake competition… The Zoofari Cake Competition at the Washington National Zoo! I am so proud!! (smiling big)

Heaven (left in photo above) is on a team with two other (very nice, very deserving) students from the Art Institute (Heaven, Dillyn, and Ashley)… and they are competing against three other finalist teams!

The judges for this competition include:

Mike Isabella, Top Chef finalist and owner of Graffiato Restaurant
Rock Harper, Hell’s Kitchen winner and author
Lisa Hood Head Pastry Chef at the Marriott Wardman Park
Kate Jansen Firehook founder and co-owner of Willow Restaurant

Heaven’s cake is going to have elephants, panda bears, exotic birds, and other zoo creatures! Emily purchased my $200 ticket for my fathers day gift… so I will be there with my video camera taking photo’s and video shots throughout the event! And I will be cheering when it’s allowable… and sometimes when it is not! (I can’t help myself-lol)

Tomorrow, we will be in Maryland until Saturday night, then speaking at DFC Sunday morning, instructing Bible College on Sunday afternoon… and racing to a huge MONDAY deadline with my book. So, please look for the cake competition follow up blog sometime early next week!

If you think about it, please pray for Heaven Ashlee BalsamoDillyn Riley Ketterman, and Ashley Richardson… that they will wow the crowds, impress the judges, and win the competition!

I just finished praying for you, hope the difference is felt this weekend!

With much love…

Dream Big, Live Bold, and Leave a Legacy!

Chuck Balsamo
