Congratulations to each! This year we’ve been able to welcome even more talented artists to compete and combined with the theme of “Art Nouveau” some truly beautiful works of art are sure to be created.


What is “The Art of Cake”?

This is a cake competition that emphasizes the artistry of cake. The Art of Cake calls for competitors to transform cake into creations inspired by an artist or art time period of their choice. With both traditional stacked tiers and sculpted elements required, each competitor must produce a decorated false cake that reflects not only the art each designer is inspired by, but their own artistic flair as well. Flavor is just as important as creative ability and decorating skill, as competitors must also present a tasting cake for the judging panel’s approval.
