Learn more about entering, event schedule, and the official Rules & Guidelines.

This year's theme: Make Waves
From the refreshment of a cool drink to the pleasure of listening to a summer’s rainstorm, from the smallest of streams to the world’s great oceans, this year’s theme highlights the beauty and power of water in all of its forms. Bakers and decorators are asked to create cakes that are inspired by this theme. Learn more about the theme on the Rules & Guidelines page.
