“Fashion Week 2015”
Welcome to the official home of the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show hosted by leading authority and influential Queen of Cakes, Kerry Vincent of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
If one cake is a feast, then the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show is surely a banquet, October 2015 will be all the sweeter if you SAVE THE DATES and compete at the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show where cake royalty will stage another amazing showcase of lofty sugared creations spinning sugar tales in Fashion Week 2015. Stunning displays of wedding cakes have no peer and will take pride of place in the Creative Arts location of the River Spirit Expo Building (formerly the Quiktrip Center) lower level.
Competitors are already lining up to register their preferred themes. They are doggedly determined to figure out the formula that will give them the extra edge to aid in designing the winning cake. I know we will see the most amazing drop-dead gorgeous cakes ever.
Beginning Friday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., October 2, one by one, anxious competitors will begin to arrive, register their entries, and then move their precious showpieces onto the exhibition floor. Final preparations are completed by Saturday morning October 3 between 7:30 and 10:00 a.m. (The event is not ready for public viewing until after 10:00 a.m.). Sneak peek 2014.
The atmosphere bustles with the rustle of fabrics being pinned, last minute touch-ups, the agony of repair, then cakes revealed in all their glory, as nervous competitors complete the registration process. Finally the public unveiling will happen at 10:00 a.m. sharp, Saturday, October 3, continuing through October 4, 2015. These showpieces have artwork that may have taken weeks or months to complete.
NEW THIS YEAR: Sugar Shuz from the Ovarian Cancer Australia fundraising competition may be entered for a second chance.
Cake aficionados travel thousands of miles to be a part of this iconic exhibition. It would be fair to say that competitors credit success at this event to be a key that opens doors to television possibilities, presenting, teaching and other exciting avenues that involve the sugar arts.
General fair admission is $10 per person. There is no additional charge to see the Grand National Wedding Cake Competition, sugar art show or world-class demonstrations presented during the day.
Oklahoma Sugar Artists will always remember Maxine Boyington. Hugs and special gratitude to Larry for continued warmth of friendship and scholarship donations.
