Capital Confections Cake Competition

Today in Austin:

Hundreds of cake decorators are gathering to show their goods at the Capital Confection’s That Takes The Cake Competition. From categories like “Multi-Tiered Wedding Cake,” “Single Tiered Specialty Cake” to “Confections Not on A Cake” or “Decorations Not on A Cake” we see amazing examples of cake decorating at its best.

I’ll be submitting my own humble cake this year under “Multi-Tiered Wedding Cakes,” entering as a culinary student (which is FREE, by the way) It features Tempered chocolate drawings, rolled fondant, piped royal icing and molded chocolate flowers. Bunny Blossoms are the focus here, as you can see bunnies being birthed out of cherry blossoms on the branches that climb up this cake. Tempered chocolate is poured on the top of the bigger layer to create some contrast and conveniently cover up any unsightly bumps on the smooth fondant surface.

Opportunities like this are popping up all over the place. Culinary Students in Austin are able to showcase their work and their talent in this great city in many events or competitions.

Here are some of the highlights of the day:
