Our annual Cake Show Competition will be held on March 8 & 9, 2014, inside the La Jolla Village Square Mall. We are located inside the mall on both levels (Map). Download a copy of our show flyer. The show will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. This annual event is the largest show of its kind in California. If you missed it last year, here is a sample of what happened. The cake show this year will be bigger and better than ever!
You'll find something for everyone at our show. There are gift baskets you can win with raffle tickets, cupcakes for the kids to decorate and EAT, and hundreds of beautiful cakes and other sugar art items to view and enjoy!
There are many categories for professional, non-professional, adults and children. Anyone who enjoys making decorative cakes, cookies, or other sugar art items is encouraged to check us out and enter! This show is judged by educators of the confectionery arts. Prizes are given to the winning entries.
The "Grand Wedding Cake Competition" is for the highly competitive advanced sugar artists who are looking to be creatively challenged at the most extreme level of perfection. Judging will be by an extremely experienced and highly critical judging team. Are you up for it? Show them your best work and reap the rewards and acclaim!
The entries are judged on Saturday morning and are on display through Sunday. During the Show, there are live demonstrations of many sugar arts, i.e., various cake decorating styles, candy making, cookie decorating, flowers made from gum paste, sugar eggs, gingerbread art, marzipan, or rolled fondant. The demonstrations are at 11:00 A.M.; 1:00 P.M.; 2:00P.M.; 3:00P.M.; and 4:00P.M.on Saturday and at 12:00 Noon; 1:00 P.M.; 2:00P.M.; on Sunday.
On Saturday and Sunday, we also have a booth called "Cupcake Corner." For a small donation, a person can either decorate a cupcake or a decorator will make one for them.
We have a raffle table where we sell tickets all weekend. Items that are donated by many different businesses are raffled off on Sunday at 3:00P.M. Winning ticket holders need not be present to win.
The Award Ceremony is held at 3:30P.M. on Sunday. This is where the Best of Show and all other prizes are announced.
Trophies will be presented to the winners in each category. All entrants may pick up their judges sheets to see how they were evaluated. Then they will know where they need to practice their craft for the next time. This show is for sharing and competing. See Cake Show FAQ for help.
We look forward to our partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego.
