San Diego Cake Show

Our annual Cake Show & Competition will be held on March 18 & 19, 2017, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The show will benefit Charities in San Diego. This annual event is the largest non-profit show of its kind in California. If you missed it last year, you missed out! The cake show this year will be even bigger and better than ever!

You'll find something for everyone at our show. There are gift baskets you can win with raffle tickets, demos all weekend long on the main stage, classes starting March 17th, and hundreds of beautiful cakes and other sugar art items entered into the Competition to view and enjoy! We will also have a tremendous vendor area, where you can shop to your hearts content. Our wonderful Vendors will have a variety of products available for sale and sampling.

There are many categories for professional, non-professional, adults and children included in the Competition. Anyone who enjoys making decorative cakes, cookies, or other sugar art items is encouraged to check us out and enter! This show is judged by educators of the confectionery arts. Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries.

The "Spectacular Cake Competition" is for the highly competitive advanced sugar artists who are looking to be creatively challenged at the most extreme level of perfection. Judging will be by an extremely experienced and highly critical judging team. Are you up for it? Show them your best work and reap the rewards and acclaim!
