Additional Information

Class Rules
  1. This is an Open Class. Entries must portray a wedding cake. The cake may be of any shape and design and may be covered with sugarpaste or royal icing.
  2. Cakes may consist of a single or several tiers.
  3. Dummies may be used.
  4. Entries must be original designs.
  5. Decorative work may include any edible medium (Please note that if you are using silver, or other metallic or glitter colour on your cake it must be edible. Some glitters and metallic colours are classed as non-toxic and these are not edible).If using edible metallic or glitter dusts please leave a note with your entry to advise the judges which colour & brand you have used.
  6. Commercial decorations, such as silver balls or dragees, may be used with discretion. However, entrants should note that higher marks will be awarded where decoration is hand-made. A minimum amount of wires, floristry tape, drinking straws, foil, kitchen paper, stamens, thread, tulle, gauze and ribbons may be used. A limited amount of ribbon may be used to decorate the board. No other artificial or commercial decorations/items are allowed, apart from display pillars or tier supports.
  7. Competitors may model decorations by hand such as sugar buds, flowers, foliage, twigs, fruit, berries, nuts, fungi, animals, birds, fish, people and figures (normal or comical). Flower and petal veiners/cutters may be used however all other moulds (e.g. SugarVeil, bead makers or cutters, embossing mats, lace mats) are not to be used. If wires are used, these must not be inserted directly into the cake. Flower pics should be used. If food grade wax is used to protect the wires rather than a flower pic, the judges may remove the flowers from the cake to ensure that the wax has been used correctly.
  8. The Exhibit base is to fit within a 14” (35cm) square. Note that commercially produced 14” boards may occasionally measure slightly over 35cm. We will accept entries using such boards. There is no height restriction.
  9. Competitors will be judged on: creativity; visual impact; balance of design; proportion; assembly; use of colour; use of medium; variety of techniques used; execution of techniques used; smoothness of cake covering and neatness.
