That Takes the Cake!

That Takes the Cake is a sugar art show and competition held every year in Austin, Texas the 2nd weekend after Valentine's Day.  The weekend event includes judged competitions, on-site Food Network Challenge style mini competitions, hands-on classes, vendors offering hard to find decorating tools and supplies, and showcase demonstrations conducted by some of the most celebrated chefs in the world of sugar arts and cake decorating. The show attracts cake enthusiasts from all over the country and decorators of all skill levels participate.  The divisional competition is divided by skill level - beginners to masters and by types of cake - sculpted, wedding, novelty, etc.  We encourage young decorators and have special kids, junior, teen and culinary student categories and have events throughout the weekend specifically for kids.  Each year there is a Showcake Competition with spectacular cake entries that must meet certain height and size requirements and represent a specific theme.  It is fun and inspiring to see all of the truly amazing works of edible art on display at the Show.  Capital Confectioners Cake Club, is the show's organizer and Make it Sweet is a big sponsor.

More information can be found at That Takes the Cake.
