The competition

The competition – Show us what you can!

At the Swiss Cake Festival, you have the opportunity to show your own exciting works to an Audience  from all over Switzerland! Where else can you see different ideas and techniques from so many other artists on three days in one place?

Whether hobby bakers or already professional, all are welcome and can participate with one or more pies in the competition.

The works are not judged against each other, but individually, and are assigned according to the number of points achieved in a placement. It may happen that there is more than one class in a category.The following placements can be achieved during the evaluation of the achieved points: “Gold”, “Silver”, “Bronze”, “Honorable Recognition” (equivalent to a fourth place). As in 2016, all participants will receive a certificate “has participated”.

The evaluation of the works is carried out by a qualified jury from Germany, Switzerland and Austria, following the guidelines of the British Sugarcraft Guild (BSG). This jury convinces with its expertise and its talent. A professional evaluation according to the international evaluation system at the event is guaranteed for all competitors. The judges are entitled to cut the costume to check compliance with the requirements. Decorating elements may also be removed in case of doubt.

The judges are available to each participant for questions about his work. The jury will take place on Sunday between 12:00 and 14:00. The jury can not issue an opinion on the pies of other participants for reasons of discretion. After the victory, no further questions are possible to the jurors or organizers. Valuations and scores obtained can not be passed to the participants.
