Cake Decorating Corner recently announced a cake contest awarding a total of $3,000 in prizes to the winners of a fall theme cake contest. Cake decorators may enter their cakes for a chance to win cake decorating supplies and instruction provided by sponsors. The international cake competition is open for submissions through November 26.

The website's member votes will determine the top five finalists at the conclusion of the entry period. First, second and third place winners will be selected by renowned pastry chef, Jorg Amsler, and Chef Dawn Parrott, CPC, recent grand prize winner of the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show. Both judges have been featured on "Food Network Challenge."

Sponsors include suppliers and cake decorating instructors: Renshaw Fondant, USA; Marvelous Molds, Icing Images, Edible Artists Network; SugarEd Productions; Design Me A Cake; Cake Connection; CakeFu; Windsor Whip Works Art Center; Veena's Art of Cake; Confectionary Chalet; Dawn Parrott Cake Designs; CakeMade; Simi Cakes and Ateco.

The fall cake contest is Cake Decorating Corner's kick-off contest, celebrating the launch of its recent redesign to improve navigation and include both a photo gallery and forum. The website first went live in March 2007.

Contest entries will be judged on technical difficulty, artistic ability, cleanliness of work and creativity. Registration is required to enter, but no purchase is necessary. Additional contest details can be found at:

Cake Decorating Corner will also award its first Top Tier prize at the end of November. Each day in November, one cake will be featured in the Top Tier photo gallery and shared across Cake Decorating Corner's social networks.

Cake Decorating Corner is an international community of cake decorators and a learning resource comprised of cake and icing recipes, tutorials, cake photos, cake artist interviews and industry news.
