International Cake Exploration Society sponsored the 2011 National Capitol Area Cake Show in Annandale, VA on March 26 – 27, 2011. According to the NCACS, they have not anticipated to have at least 3,000 visitors on the show and at least 350 registered competitors. There was overwhelming number of crowd and overflowing cakes on the tables for each competing division. It was one kind of an event that I’ve never been to. TLC and Food Network Channels were there shooting a cake challenge episode called Castles of the Silver Screen.
In the Sculpted Cake Category in my Division, this is the sculpted cake (R2D2) I created and entered for the competition. This R2D2 was placed 2nd, which according to one of the NCACS judges who wrote the critic/review card that this could have been placed 1st place in the Tiered Cake category and not in the Sculpted Cake category. Darn! Lessons learned… for me.
