As you may have already heard, we WON the Best Tasting Wedding Cake in North Texas this past weekend! The contest was in Richardson, Texas at the Richardson Civic Center. The categories stretched from ‘Buttercream Dream’ to the Six Day Challenge all the way to the most favorited one of all; THE TASTING!
Nancy, entered in the category for Best Tasting Wedding Cakes and another employee, Candice Kirksey, entered for Wedding Cake Design. On Sunday April 26th, was judging day.
We had arrived around 8am to setup the Wedding Cake for best design and turn in the Wedding Cake for taste. Throughout the day everyone walked around viewing what other people from around the metroplex had brought for show. Some of the creations were Royal Icing that was made into a lace figurine, another was Sugar Bubbles that you can blow yourself! It was amazing! I’ve seen some pretty interesting things whilst working in a bakery, but some I hadn’t seen or even heard of!
When the judging begin it took longer than expected. Although waiting around ended up being perfectly fine! Nancy didn’t expect to win overall the Best Taste, but the flavor Nancy created was the most random and unique any baker could possibly have. It included these smells; Mocha, Almond, Rum, and Vanilla. Candice brought home 2nd place in the Wedding Cake design category. Her cake was beautiful! Very elegant and unique with ivory, purple, and white.
Attending this Wedding Cake Show not only did we win, but we networked with colleagues in the same industry as us. It was a grand ole time, we had. Don’t forget you can find us this July 25th and 26th 2015 at the annual Dallas Bridal Show in Downtown Dallas at The Dallas Market Center!
