Let Them Eat Cake! Fine Arts Cake Decorating Contest
December 1 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
A fun, edible art competition! This year’s theme is “A Night at the Movies.” All entries mus be 40% edible. First Prize is $250, Second Prize is $175, and third prize is $100. In addition there will be an EMERGING ARTIST Award of $100 for the best cake by an artist under 18 years of age.
For this exhibit, artists are encouraged to use any ingredients for their cakes, remembering that they will be judged on artistic merit and not taste – although taste could be a tie breaker. All entries must be 40% edible. There is no size requirement or limitation with respect to the size of the cake. All artists must be present to cut their cake(s).
The cakes will be judged at 4 p.m. on the day of the opening reception for the show, and will be on view from 5 to 6 p.m. At 6 p.m. the artists will cut their cakes and attendees at the Gualala Salon and Salon des Refuses’ and Let Them Eat Cake! will get to eat the cake and wash it down with free champagne.
This year’s judge is Shani Christenson of Shani’s Sweet Creations in Mendocino. Shani will have a cake on display at Gualala Arts Center to inspire cake artists and is willing to take questions from bakers if they need some expertise. Artists can call her at 707-397-1949.
