Icing on the Cake Competition Is This Saturday at Bossier Parish Community College
The 4th Annual Icing on the Cake Competition is set to go this Saturday at Bossier Parish Community College.
Cake artists from around the region will be featured in the competition. The competition is open to the public for general viewing from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Building F on the College’s campus. Tickets are $5 for general admission or $20 for an all-access pass to all the shows and classes of the day.
Returning for her fourth year, Food Network Cake Champion, Bronwen Weber, along with other prominent cake professionals, will bring their talent to the Icing stage. A number of activities will be offered throughout the day, including basic cake decorating, gumpaste flowers, ice sculpting and working with isomalt.
Also, back by popular demand, a LIVE “team cake-building challenge” competition where teams of 5 experienced bakers go head-to-head in a timed contest, using only items concealed in a mystery box to be opened right before the competition. The live contests begin at 10:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. and last about 2 ½ hours.
The theme for this year’s event is “Greeting Cards.” Registration has begun for bakers of all skill levels, from amateur to professional, in a variety of categories, including wedding, theme, special occasions and all buttercream.
All proceeds for the event benefit Bossier Parish Community College Culinary Arts Program and Quota International Club of Shreveport.
