Cake decorators to mount sugar sweet display

August 9, 2018 by  

Children’s television shows and popular movies will be the focus of the 2018 Cake Decorators Guild of NSW Sugar Showcase in Campbelltown.

The edible art showcase will be displayed for curious visitors at Campbelltown Catholic Club, with entry available for a donation of a gold coin. Proceeds will go towards the 24 Fight Against Cancer Macarthur.

According to Narelle Waldock who is a member of the Camden Cake Decorators Guild, the event is only held every two years and should not be missed. She says:

“We will have a range of categories – from wedding, birthday and christening cakes through to sugar flowers, fast food and gravity-defying mythical creatures.”

Flyer printing for each event over the years has been employed to advertise many different themes including a focus on famous local legend Fisher’s Ghost. This year’s is ‘popular Australian movies’. Waldock says:

“Expect to see Mad Max, Muriel’s Wedding, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Crocodile Dundee made out of sugar.”

Prize money will also be on offer for some of the state’s most talented cake decorators who have submitted pieces of their handiwork for judging.

An estimated 70 entries are expected to be on display, from novice to experienced cake decorators.

The event, to be held on the weekend of August 18 and 19, will also include an exhibition of some vintage baking equipment.
