How will judging be done? This will be a people's choice award. Three cash prizes will be awarded. One to each division.
Why aren't there very many rules? The purpose of this show is not the same as other cake shows. This show is to impress the general public and give exposure to local professionals and professionals in training.
If I used this "cake" in another cake show, can I use it for this one? Absolutely! We want cool chocolate pieces for people's jaw-dropping wonder.
If I used it last year at Choctoberfest, can I enter it again? Yes, just make sure it's not dusty.
What if I am a home hobbyist and want to enter? You may enter the show, but you must have a business license and insurance or be a student at a recognized culinary institute to ADVERTISE in this show.

Do I need to stay all day? No, we will have someone working the show that can refill fliers, etc. You will need to be set up completely by 9:30, and you need to remove your showpiece by 7 pm or it will be thrown away.
