To conclude my Las Vegas International Bakers Industry Expo experience I bestow upon you the Pillsbury Creative Decorating Competition, alternatively know as the Rockstars Of Cake and Fondant! Since a picture is worth a thousand words I’ll just post a brief rundown of the contest from the website and then post the pictures of my favorite cakes.

RBA 13th Annual Pillsbury Bakers Plus Creative Decorating Competition

From the IBIE website IBIE :
“Creativity will take center stage, as 12 of the country’s top professional cake decorators challenge each other to a contest of imagination, artistry and skill during one of baking’s most prestigious competitions… The twelve finalists will consist of regional winners and top portfolio entries, and will compete in five categories: wedding cake, rolled fondant, sculpted, creative design and floral design. The highest scoring individual, as determined by a panel of judges, will be awarded the coveted Pillsbury Bakers’ Plus Grand Champion Trophy. Gold, silver and bronze medals, along with cash prizes will also be awarded for the highest three scores in each category.”

These last few cakes were not contenders but simply delightful pieces of artwork that I saw elsewhere at the Exposition.
