Test your cake decorating skills at this Austin suburb's sugar arts competition
Bakers and sugar enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels are not gonna want to miss this local competition. Round Rock’s “That Takes the Cake!” sugar arts show and cake competition will be decorating some amazing treats and classes for the general public on March 31.
The competition is led by Capital Confectioners, a Greater Austin nonprofit that connects hobbyists and professionals in a network of people interested in sugar arts.
Competitors will bring their decorated cakes and sugar arts to enter in any of the four contests: the child/junior category, the divisional competition, the sugar showpiece, and the tasting contest. Winners will be chosen by a panel of industry renowned judges, and will be awarded medals, cash prizes, and more.
Several classes and challenges will also be available for spectators to participate in during the show's three-day weekend. Attendees can learn how to decorate cartoon-themed cakes, cookies, or learn how to craft sugar flowers.
For the challenge portion of the show, visitors will test their skills in real-time as they take on themed mystery cake decoration contests. Winners of the challenges in each session will win a $50 cash prize.
“That Takes the Cake!” will kick off March 31 and run until 6 pm on April 2 at the Round Rock Sports Center. More information about the show and competition can be found on their website.
