Mystery Box Challenge

Open invitations are extended to cake decorator attendees to participate in the 2020 That Takes the Cake “Mystery Box” on-site competitions that will take place in the Special Events stage area.  Starting times for the 1.5 hour session on Saturday, February 22nd is 11:15AM  (Structure) and the 45 minute session (Survivor) will start at 5PM.  The 1 hour session on Sunday, February 23rd starts at 12:30PM and will be the Retail Baker’s Challenge.  The boxes for each session will be different but will be identical for each competitor. Each competitor should bring one teammate per session to assist them. Up to 6 teams may compete in each session.  Expert judges will pick winners at the end of each session.  The 1st place competitor/team in each session will receive $50 cash.  Along with standard judging criteria, teams will be judged on the use and application of the items in the mystery basket.  As added incentive, competitors will get to keep the items from their mystery box.  All supplies and tools are provided.  If all slots are not filled in advance, competitors may be added on-site, however, we ask that you sign up for only one session.

Late addition: The Cookie Challenge is for individual cookiers, not teams.
