The annual That Takes the Cake! Sugar Art Show & Cake Competition will be February 27th through the 28th in Austin, TX.
I’m excited because while this will be my second year to compete, it will be my first year to compete in the decorating side. I was so nervous about it last year that I only entered the tasting competition (and took second place–woo hoo!).
For information about this year’s show, go the the That Takes the Cake! website. There will be all kinds of classes and demonstrations, on-site competitions, and hundreds of freakin’ awesome cakes. (I wish I could take the Modeling Chocolate 101 class, but the $550 price tag is way out of my range.) I’ll be there both days, and my sister and oldest niece will be joining me.
Like last year, I’ll post photos of all the cakes that catch my eye for one reason or another. If you’re interested in seeing last year’s cake photos, go to snarkychef.vox.com and click on the “cake and sugar art show” tag (or go here). That will bring up all the posts with my photos from the 2009 show. Hopefully I’ll be able to eventually move them over to Dork Chocolate.
