Great start to the Year – Rockingham’s Cake Wars Extravaganza

The Cake Decorator’s Association of WA Rockingham Branch kicked the year off with a bang hosting the first of what we hope will be a continuing tradition. The Rockingham Cake Decorators Association’s Cake Wars. This ultra fun day saw teams from a few different branches test their skills in a number of tricky cake decorating challenge vying for supremacy, bragging rights and the title of Cake Wars Champions.

Rockingham had a great turnout with spectators and competitors coming from far and wide to be a part of the fun.  Rockingham have done and continue to do a lot of work to attract and support new members and deliver exciting meetings and events.

Thank you to the incredible team at the Rockingham branch for putting on such a fun day.  And thank you to the fabulous panel of judges and all the spectators who really helped to make this a great event.

The Australiana themed competition consisted of two elimination rounds before the third and final round. Performance in the previous rounds affected how much equipment teams had access to, and eliminated teams able to purchase devilish sabotages to make things more interesting.

Round 1: Decorate cupcakes with unconventional equipment and very limited time. 15 minutes!

Round 2: Cover a dummy cake with fondant and decorate it using only what the teams could afford to “purchase” from the table of limited resources. It was entertaining watching teams struggle to decide if another colour was more important than a rolling pin, a smoother or more fondant. 30 minutes!

Round 3: Present the Cake and Cupcakes together, improve on the previous designs for the cake and cupcakes and add a cake topper if one had not already been added. 30 minutes!
