We will again be hosting “bake-off”, the “Battle of the Cakes” as part of the festival. As always we are seeking “The Bigger …The Better” entries, cakes prepared by the best in our area.  We are pleased to invite you to take a spot in the competition.

Entry is simple:

  • Submit your (2) cakes to serve at least eight with chocolate being the main ingredient.
  • Prepare two plates of identical cakes. One will be judged on Friday evening  and will also be sold by the slice to festival attendees the following day.  The second will be auctioned off and also judged by festival attendees.
  • Entries will be submitted to a panel of judges selected by festival committees.  Judging criteria will be available to participating bakers in advance. See item #2 in rules and regulations.

Your cakes will be displayed for the crowd on Saturday where the winner will be crowned on the stage at 11 am for all festival attendees to see. We have also added an additional prize for crowd favorite. Festival attendees will be encouraged to pick their favorite among all those that participated.
