Azalea cake competition

Posted by Doug Wahl - email

Wilmington, NC (WECT)- You know the old saying: "If I knew you were coming I'd of baked cake." Well, knowing that thousands of people are coming the Azalea festival is going to bake several cakes.

For the first time ever The North Carolina Azalea Festival announced a new event to its 2010 agenda: the Azalea Cake Challenge. Local bakers will be challenged to construct elaborate "centerpiece cakes" featuring themes which represent the best of the Azalea Festival. Contestants representing local bakeries, restaurants and catering services will compete in the professional division, while novice bakers can also compete in the amateur division.

Cakes in both categories will be critiqued by a professional judging team consisting of local baking experts and Azalea Festival celebrities. Event ticket-holders will also be invited to judge in various "people's choice" categories, and will have the opportunity to sample cakes in the professional category. The event will take place on Sunday, April 11, from noon to 4 pm at Cape Fear Community College's Schwartz Center.
