Ideal Christmas Cake Decorator of the Year Competition

Start Moulding the Marzipan for the ‘Ideal Christmas Cake Decorator of the Year’ competition!
Entry deadline is 2pm on Thursday 15th November 2012
Judging at 3.00pm
Prize Giving Ceremony at 3.45pm on the Christmas Craft Theatre

The highly anticipated cake decorating competition will ask entrants to create a cake that reflects their ‘Ideal Christmas’. 
Whether its big or small, cupcakes or multi-tiered masterpieces, we’re looking for the most novel, exciting and fun Christmas cakes of 2012.
Entrants to the competition are asked to bring their creations to the show’s Christmas Craft Theatre by 2pm on Thursday 16th November.

The cakes will be entered into the competition to be in with the chance of winning a fantastic range of prizes, and the accolade of the ‘Ideal Christmas Cake Decorator of the Year.’

The cakes will then be judged by our esteemed judging panel, including Tarek Malouf from the Hummingbird Bakery.
The cakes will remain on display for the remainder of the day and prizes will be awarded in a dedicated prize-giving ceremony hosted on the Christmas Craft Theatre at 3.45pm. 
Contestants are welcome to take their cakes home with them after the award ceremony

The winning entry in the competition will win a £500 M&S Gift Card, a cupcake making master class at Hummingbird Bakery, a 3 course tasting lunch at Gregg Wallace’s Winter Restaurant with two glasses of champagne, a selection of signed cook books and a pair of tickets to the Ideal Home Show 2013!

All entrants  will receive free entry on the door for themselves and a guest*  to the Ideal Home Show at Christmas, as well as gaining automatic entry into the competition once their cakes have been delivered to the judging area.

The competition is open to everyone, with all ages encouraged.
The Ideal Home Show at Christmas will also be inviting professional cake decorators to show off their skills and interpretations of the theme in a separate competition so there will be a wide variety of creativity displayed.
So if you’ve ever thought your Christmas sugary creations are worthy of more than family praise around the dining table, then this is the competition for you!

* No refund will be applied to pre-paid tickets. Up to two free tickets per home-decorated cake presented upon entry. Media 10 reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time without notice.
