It was fun and pretty interesting watching contestants competing for the Pillsbury Bakers’ Plus Grand Champion in Creative Cake Decorating. The 3-day All Things Baking Trade Show at Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center, Schaumburg (Chicago) that concluded on October 4, 2011 included this live competition on the exhibit hall floor. Judging was based on the following categories:
* Flowers and Sprays
* Wedding Cakes
* Rolled Fondant
* Custom Design Cakes
* Sculpted Cakes
Enjoy and get inspiration from these finished competition cakes!
Note that contestants were not allowed to interact with trade show visitors.
