Professional pastry company, bakery, caterer, hotel or restaurant – $150 per participant. More than one participant per establishment is acceptable.

Student Participation – No Charge
Participants are requested to provide one totally edible creation, after a blind tasting and judging we will allow participants to re-enter the room to add signage and business cards to their tables. Participants will demonstrate their creativity by displaying what they feel is their single best design, be it traditional, non-traditional, ethnic, fantasy or seasonal… the sky is the limit! Cakes will be judged in nine categories like Most Artistic, Best Tasting and Best Overall – Professional, College and High School Vocational.
Proceeds from ticket sales on the day of the event will benefit City of Hope.

Hotel du Pont’s Jennifer Houser, Catering Sales mgr., Jennifer Ballintyn, Asst. Pastry Chef, Michelle Mitchell, Exec. Pastry Chef, Jillian Cournayer, and Sr. Catering Sales Mgr., I was curious why their cake didn’t seem to reflect the “Through A Child’s Eyes” them, and the explanation was every little girl who grows up in Wilmington, DE wants their wedding here.

It was crowded, there were a lot of delicious cakes, but I learned my lesson from last year and only had 2 slim slices.
