Let Them Make Cake

Pastry chefs give ovens a workout in heated competition.


Any newlywed knows that a wedding cake is already a confectionary piece of art. But when you add artistic masterpieces like Klimt's The Kiss to the mix, you get today's Art of the Cake: A Wedding Cake Showcase. The competition challenges bakers from around the country to build cakes that duplicate famous artworks. Spectators then cast votes on the creation that most resembles the painting or sculpture. "You can do a lot of things with sugar that people don't think you can do. It's fun because you get to do things that would be too out-of-the-box for a regular bride that wants white-on-white," says organizer Ann Weisand, who runs Grand Finale Bakery in Brunswick. "You can basically get an edible piece of artwork." The baking starts at noon today at the True North Cultural Arts Center, 33491 Lake Road in Avon Lake. Admission is free. Call 440-933-7771 or visit
Sun., Jan. 27, noon, 2008
