Welcome to the official home of the Grand National Wedding Cake Competition and the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show hosted by leading authority and influential Queen of Cakes, Kerry Vincent of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Why would you participate? Apart from the GRAND NATIONAL WEDDING CAKE spectacle where the theme will be PERFUME, hundreds of stunning cakes will vie for incredible awards at the 2017 cake extravaganza.
The nation’s premier cake royals will stir up a glorious menu of bespoke wedding cakes. Never has the immaculate construction of edible sugar accents been so vital, the addition of sugar flowers so tensely applied, or vertical stacking of constructed tiers so carefully analyzed.
Wandering through this maze of edible artwork, visitors can soak up an exemplary experience: The ultimate inspiration for consumers to simply muse and marvel, or create the cake of their dreams. Beautifully presented, there is something for everyone, young and old. Categories and divisions are available for all levels, from children through masters. The OKLAHOMA STATE SUGAR ART SHOW sets the standard like no other.
Nestled in the fun-filled atmosphere of the Tulsa State Fair, stunning table settings will be the underpinnings for world-class top-notch designs, so many to see that it will be hard to pick a favorite.
Here CAKE ROYALTY will stage another amazing showcase, spinning glittering sugar magic with a combination of inspired design. Look to see expertly crafted cakes that reach majestic heights of design.
Competitors are already chomping at the bit 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., September 29, 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 between 7:30 and 10:00 a.m. (The event is not ready for public viewing until after 10:00 a.m.).
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, September 30, continuing through October 1, 2017. These showpieces have artwork that may have taken weeks or months to complete.
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.
