Great Cake Bake
(Information provided by Mary Pom Claiborne, Knox County Public Library)
Calling all sugar artists. East Tennessee's fanciest cake competition is just around the corner. Knox County Public Library is showcasing the imagination with the help of a little flour, butter, and sugar. The third annual Great Cake Bake to benefit Imagination Library is set for 12 - 5 p.m. on March 31 in the Tennessee Terrace at UT's Neyland Stadium. All local bakers and cake makers are invited to participate.
Participants can enter in one of four divisions: Junior (under 18), Beginner, Intermediate, and Professional; and can bake in one of three categories: All Occasion Cakes, Wedding Cakes, and a single brilliantly decorated Cupcake. The decorated cakes will be separated into different groups: buttercream frosting only and fondant/gum paste/mixed sugar art. There's a place for every cake!
To enter online, go to www.knoxlib.org/cakebake and fill out an easy registration form. Each entry costs $12, which is the cost of sponsoring one child in Imagination Library for a year. Entries must be received by March 22 in order to be entered in the Great Cake Bake. Paper forms can also be downloaded from the Knox County Public Library's website or picked up at Sugarbakers Cake, Candy & Wedding Supplies.
Winners in each category and division will receive a trophy and bragging rights for an entire year! The Public will vote on their favorite cake to find a People's Choice Winner.
