If you live in Tennessee, there are some cool cake shows happening this year, and if you are within reasonable driving distance to Lexington, KY then please try to attend the ICES annual convention in August.
The East TN Sugar Artists are hosting the Fall into Sugar Cake Show on June 29, 2013 in Oak Ridge, TN. More information, including rules and entry form are available on their website: http://fallintosugar.webs.com/.
Those of us in Middle Tennessee can participate in the cake decorating classes that are part of the Williamson County Fair’s Culinary arts competitions. It looks like they still need to update the website with all the details, but the fair itself runs from August 2-10.
ICES Convention is August 8-11, and it’s in Lexington, KY this year, which is an easy driving distance for me so I’m all registered and ready to go. Well, not quite ready, since my bags aren’t packed yet or anything, but then, I have until August to worry about that. More info is here: http://icesconvention.org/Welcome.html
On September 5-7, the West TN Sugar Artists are having their second annual Cake Show and Competition in conjunction with the Delta Fair and Music Festival. This is gonna be busy, complete with contests, classes, and vendors. You can download the flyer here: http://www.westtnsugarartists.org/uploads/WTSA_flyer_2013-D.pdf, and check out their website for more information, including the competition rules and registration forms: http://www.westtnsugarartists.org.
