On Monday, April 27th The 11th Annual Let Them Eat Cake competition rolled into the City once again. This year fifteen bakeries and student chefs created “Masterpieces” to be judged at the Crystal Tea Room. Let Them Eat Cake attracts brides, and cake fans where proceeds benefit City of Hope (A Leading Cancer Research Hospital in Los Angeles) at the Crystal Tea Room.

The Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, Sarah Doheny and Nikki O’Connell. Cake Boss said look for his new bakery at 2101 Walnut Street to open in about 3 weeks, just in time for the summer and tourist season. Next to Rocky, The Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross’ house, I think Carlo’s Bakery Philly will become a must stop.
Then there was this cake.
#16 Art Institute Kristina Wolff Best Student
Table #16 had two winners: Students Kristina Wolff and Skye Miller from the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
