The new-to-Cake Fair VIP Meet & Greet Party, which gave attendees an exclusive opportunity to mingle and take snaps with their favorite stage headliners and Satin Ice Artists of Excellence, was an instant hit. The 16th Annual Pillsbury™ Bakers’ Plus Grand Champion Creative Decorating Competition, hosted by General Mills Foodservice and the Retail Bakers of America, also created excitement on the show floor.



Lifetime Achievement
Two significant announcements highlighted the awards ceremony: standout cake designer and owner of Central Florida-based Bake Me A Cake, Mercedes Strachwsky, received an Industry Achievement Award for her contributions to the cake and baking industry (her dazzling show cake, “Fantasy Under the Sea,” was a creation three weeks in the making) and Satin Ice announced its new partnership with Icing Smiles to support the national nonprofit organization that partners with volunteer bakers known as “sugar angels” to create custom cakes for families impacted by the critical illness of a child.
