Three decorators will compete during the annual Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo, taking place June 2-4, 2013 in Orlando.
The International Dairy-Deli-Bake Association (IDDBA) is seeking competitors for the 18th Annual Cake Decorating Challenge, which will take place during the annual Dairy-Deli-Bake Expo June 2-4, 2013, in Orlando, Fla. Three store-level decorators will compete by creating displays that promote their creative, technical and time management skills.
The challenge begins with creating enough production cakes to fill an 8-in. bakery case on day one. Day two is devoted to the creation of a custom-design wedding cake. On the last day, each contestant will decorate three cakes of their choice, one from each category: special occasion, theme/event and decorator’s choice.
The contestants will compete for first-, second- and third-place trophies. Last year's champion was Andria Chinander, Lund Food Holdings (Byerly’s), Edina, Minn.
To enter, cake decorators must submit an entry form along with a photo album of the best cakes they've decorated. Supermarket chains may enter as many cake decorators as they choose. The deadline for entry is Feb. 14, 2013. Visit the IDDBA's website for more information and an entry form.
