Cake Bake Off

Do you have an amazing family cake recipe, or do you like to decorate?

We invite you to show us what you’ve got!

Bring your cakes to the Harvest Festival, and let your peers be the judge!

Cake Bake-Off Rules and Information:

  1. Let us know if you are planning to bake a cake by SIGNING UP HERE. Entry forms (see attached file for entry form) and list of ingredients must accompany each cake.

  2. Cakes must be checked in at the Live Oak MPR between 10:30am-11:30am on Saturday, October 21st.

  3. Cakes will be on display in the MPR from 11:30am-12:00pm.

  4. Judging will be completed no later than 12:00 pm. Winners will be announced at 12:50 pm.

  5. After the winners are announced, you may take your cake home, or donate it to the PTA Concessions to be sold whole if untasted and/or sliced into individual servings and sold during the Harvest Festival. If you don’t wish to donate, please pick up your cake by 1:30pm in the MPR.

  6. Cakes will be displayed at room temperature in the MPR before judging and displayed at concessions before they are sold.

  7. We prefer cakes made WITHOUT NUTS. If your recipe calls for nuts, please be sure to label it prominently and VERY clearly that the cake contains nuts.

  8. Please try to use disposable dishes as we cannot guarantee the safety of plates. If you need to retrieve your dish, please mark it with the entrant’s name (in a place where judges cannot see the name), and pick it up at PTA Concessions no later than 3:30pm.

  9. Kids and adults can participate in either category. Participants may bake more than one cake.

    1. Scratch (judged on taste, texture, grain, color, flavor, overall presentation and appearance, NO MIXES)

    2. Design/Decoration (not tasted, judged on original decoration, uniqueness of design, surface consistency and overall appearance, mixes are ok)

  10. Entry forms MUST be accompanied by either a recipe or a complete list of ingredients. See below for attached entry form.

  11. Awards will be given for 1st and 2nd place winners in each of two categories.
