Nov 14, 2010
11:00 AM until 05:00 PM


“Animals Gone Wild” and “ My Destination Wedding “ will be this year’s themes as professional cake decorators compete for $1000 first prizes at the 4th Ultimate Cake Decorating Competition. The contest is sponsored by the Upper Midwest Bakery Association and is open to decorators from member retail bakeries, cake shops and in-store bakeries throughout the upper Midwest.

Decorators will compete in a timed competition before a live audience at the Mall of America. In the birthday cake competition, decorators will decorate a cake and 24 matching cupcakes during a 90-minute period. They will have the option of doing a sheet cake or a sculpted cake using their choice of icing. All work will be done on site.

The wedding cake competition will have two person teams competing to do a five-tier or larger wedding cake in their choice of icing that represents “ My Destination Wedding Cake.” The wedding competition runs from 1:15 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Sue Zelickson of Minnesota Monthly magazine will be the MC. Along with the competition the UMBA will also be hosting cupcake decorating for children from 11- 4 p.m.

The Ultimate Cake Decorating Competition is sponsored by the UMBA in conjunction with General Mills, Brill, Bakery Crafts, CSM, Bakemark, Lindar and Gregory’s Foods.

Entry forms will be available at uppermidwestbakery.net or from local bakery distributors.
