“Mad for Metallics 2016”
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.
Marie Antoinette said, so they said, “Let them eat cake.” Or did she? Regardless, she did enjoy a lot of cake and would have been right at home here with us.
If one cake is a feast, then the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show is surely a banquet. October 2016 will be all the sweeter if you SAVE THE DATES and compete. Here CAKE ROYALTY will stage another amazing showcase, spinning glittering sugar magic with a combination of inspired design. Look to see cakes that are expertly crafted that reach majestic heights of design.
The theme for 2016 is … MAD FOR METALLICS!
Stunning displays of wedding cakes that have no peer will take pride of place in the lower level of the River Spirit Expo Building.
Competitors are already busy 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., September 30, 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 1 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, October 1, continuing through October 2, 2016. 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.
