The blog post on February 10th is a prerequisite for this blog post, because I was talking about how I tried to go to a dessert convention. Well, would you believe that only a few weeks later the next best thing has come to Philly called “Let them eat cake”. This event was a charity event cake competition with 40 professional cakes and 10 student cakes to be judged in 2 categories: appearance & taste. All of the proceeds from the tickets go towards the City Of Hope Foundation
which is a research center dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. I didn’t waste any time purchasing my tickets! Needless to say, after all that cake testing we were both sick to our stomach and didn’t hang around for the official results, so here is my own set of awards!
First Place: Appearance
Second Place: Appearance
Third Place: Appearance
First Place: Taste: This cake was chocolate ganache with milk and white chocolate mousse, so delicious
Second Place: Taste This cake was a Southern Sweet Potato Cake with Cream Cheese icing
Third Place: Taste This was another chocolate one (my weakness) of moist chocolate cake with ganache filling..yummm
