Harbourfront Fantasy Strawberry Shortcake Competition

We were so excited when we were asked by Harbourfront Center to participate in a live cake decorating competition during there strawberry festival over Canada Day long weekend. The theme was simple. Strawberries. Inside and out. We decided to go with a retro design on the outside and a very traditional vanilla bean cake with a decadent vanilla bean buttercream and tons of fresh sliced strawberries on the inside. So Yummy.

The rules were, you could bring your cake masked and covered due to time constraints. We pre-made half of our sugar hand sculpted strawberries and did the rest live in front of the audience and cameras. Are opponent was Ayoma of Ayoma cake masterpieces.

After an exciting few hours of cake decorating and answering questions from the audience and judges it was finally time to do the tasting and judging portion of the competition. We patiently wait for the winner to be announced and its us!!!.

Thanks so much to everyone at RedPath Sugar for sponsoring the competition and giving us lot of sugar to make our cakes with. We had tons of fun!
