Both professional and hobby bakers are invited to bring their best themed cupcakes to the arena at NCACS where they will compete against one another for fame and prizes. (Ok, we can only promise prizes!)
Judging will be overseen by professional sugar artists from the main cake show divisional and wedding cake competitions, as well as members of the community. Event attendees will also select a People’s Choice winner.
