A high standard cake competition
With 85 exhibits, the cake contest was clearly the main attraction this year and core part of the 3rd event. The 7-person jury, consisting of trained experts with years of experience in judging, was positively surprised by the exceptionally high standardcompared to the previous year. They awarded “Gold”, “Silver” and “Bronze” trophies, as well as the “Best in Show” award. The competition participants were able to present their talents effectively and even the Swiss residents were convinced that the participants were true cake artisans.
A real challenge for all visitors was to choose their favorite cake for the coveted audience award. The award went to Marlies Magurno for the second time in a row, with just under 10% of all votes, proving her exceptional talent.
In this year’s edition, you could not only buy the right tools from selected exhibitors from Switzerland and abroad, but also watch national and international experts live or practice in different workshops.
Demos and live baking in the show kitchen
Those who just wanted to watch could learn a lot from the numerous live demonstrations, in the demo area as well as in the show kitchen. In the Demo Area the Cake Stars from all over Europe showed their talents from modeling human figures up to drawing on edible ground for 7 hours.
The show kitchen, implemented for the first time due to the many requests of the visitors, was prominently located in the hall and quite overrun by the visitors. Professionals from all over Switzerland showed the visitors how to bake the perfect cake bases with the right ingredients, work with Isomalt to recreate Olaf von Frozen as well as the essentials for drip cakes or how to make healthy snacks.
The co-organizers Lina Caroli and Valeria Varrese are now planning the next Swiss Cake Festival. The exact date of the next event will be announced after a short break from the exhibition.
It is guaranteed that the next Swiss Cake Festival will continue to score points with new sweet surprises and it will remain the most popular platform for Swiss Cake Design.
We are looking forward to again makehistory for Swiss Cake Design with you.
