We Won! We Won!

Sugarland winners at IBIE 2013 in wedding cakes and grooms cakes

The champ and her winning cakes!

We just got back from a whirlwind trip to Fabulous Las Vegas for the cake decorating olympics!  The International Baking Industry Exposition ( IBIE for short ) happens once every three years and is the biggest bakery-centric event in North America.  In Europe, they have SIGEP, which we dream of going to but that’s a blog post for another day.

IBIE hosts championship competitions for almost any baked good you can imaging. There was a pie championship, a bread bake off, even the trials for the US Pizza Team happen at IBIE.  Our very own head decorator, Stephanie, was chosen to participate this year against just 11 other nationwide competitors in the Pillsbury  Creative Cake Decorating Grand Championship.  She had to complete twelve cakes in twelve hours over the course of three days. There was even the required amount of reality-showesque drama when they shut off the air conditioning overnight and 8 of the 12 sculpted cakes fell and were disqualified. Gasp!!

She worked hard, and we are so proud to say that she medaled in wedding and grooms cakes!  Which just proves what we already knew- she’s the best!

Stephanie took the silver medal for this wedding cake and grooms cake inspired by the bride and groom who met on location in Thailand.  The bride is a jewelry designer and the groom is an archaeologist (who loves Indiana Jones!).  The wedding cake was designed to fit perfectly into their chic and sophisticated Las Vegas wedding complete with lots of sparkle and red orchids.  And the grooms cake was to be a surprise from the bride to the groom, so she made him a Jones-inspired hat and whip of his very own!
