Edible Architecture Cake Competition

Friday 27th-Saturday 28th September 2019

Cakes should speak for themselves without words, however, we do encourage you to come up with a creative name!

Cakes will be judged on the following:

Taste (25%), Creativity & WOW factor (25%), Use of Colour (25%), Architectural relevance (25%).

Winners will be chosen from two age categories:

13 and under
14 and over

Drop off your masterpiece to the Pop-Up Space (126 Trafalgar Street) on Friday 27th September between 12pm – 4pm. Look out for the Cake Drop sign, where you can fill out your details and pay your $2 entry fee.

Cakes will be on display between 10am – 2pm on Saturday 28th and winners will be announced at the Pop-Up Space closing event from 5pm Saturday 28th.

Awesome prizes to be won! There will be a winner from each age group, plus an overall people’s choice award!

You can bake your cake from scratch or buy a premade “base cake” (such as a sponge), however your cake must be put together and decorated entirely by you. You will also be judged on taste.

Thank you to Bow To Stern NZ for their sponsorship.

Family Friendly Free
