A party just isn’t complete without cake. Cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops -- in the Cake Decorating Contest, the design possibilities are endless and delicious! Prizes are provided by Blurb and winners will be featured in a commemorative Blurb magazine. Blurb is also offering a special judges' prize for cakes inspired by famous works of art, so break out the art history books for ideas.
The top confectioners will also take home Canon DSLR camera bundles, tabletop lighting equipment, Wilton cookware, and more. We’re looking for cakes that will taste good and look good, so take extra care when photographing and documenting your work. For those who need a little coaching, try our new Cake Decorating Class for helpful tips and tricks. Share your cake and eat it, too!
