The Third Annual MS Cake Decorating Challenge

Saturday, April 5, 2014, Just Think Cake is proud to present The Third Annual MS Cake Challenge at First United Methodist Church, 103 1st St SE, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548

The contest is open to all ages.

This event is to showcase your cake decorating skills and creativity.  In addition we will have demonstrations, vendors and door prizes.  Winners in each category, chosen by a guest panel of celebrity judges will be awarded prizes and two people’s choice winners will be awarded, one in taste and one in decorating. 

“Masquerade” is the inspiration for this show, as MS symptoms are often masked and invisible to others.  We are searching for a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, and ask that you use this theme in anyway you see fit to inspire your design.
