Cake Decorating Contest and Cake Walk
This year’s festival includes the ever-popular Cake Decorating Contest and Cake Walk events. This will occur in the Vashon Room at the Hall at Fauntleroy. In order to make this event a success, we are calling on bakers to provide cakes. We need lots of them!
The decorating contest has three categories: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Cakes can be any shape or size but should have either a Fall, Halloween or West Seattle theme. They can be very simple to very elaborate, baked and decorated by an individual, or a parent and child, a family, or a group of friends. Click on the photo at right for a small sample of cakes from last year’s event. Visit our Archives page for lots of beautiful cake pictures over the years.
Cakes should be brought to the Vashon Room on the day of the festival, between 12 noon and 1 p.m. Voting will begin at 1:30 and continue until about 3 p.m. Once the votes have been tallied, prizes will be awarded for each category. (Who votes? You do, along with other Fall Festival guests.) And then the Cake Walk begins! The Cake Walk continues until all the cakes have been given away. If you do not want to enter the Cake Decorating Contest, you can bake and donate a cake for the Cake Walk.
