Kansas City Cake Fest:
The first annual Kansas City Cake Festival
is the brainchild of Kansas City’s own Mike Elder, who just so happens to be the three-time undefeated champion of TLC’s “Ultimate Cake Off”. The charity cake fest, which, in cooperation with the “The Whole Person” charity, brings the joy and fun associated with cake making with the recent fascination of TV cake show cakeoffs!
At KC Cake Fest, you will see over 20 of your favorite TV cake chefs compete to create Kansas City-inspired cakes in two separate, good Cake Battles, judged by their celebrity judges. Cake Fest’s panel of judges includes Leigh Grode from TLC’s “Ultimate Cake-Off,” Tony “Tone Tone” Albanese from “Cake Boss”, and many, many, more.
On Saturday & Sunday, Four teams of Four Cake Artists go head to head, in two fast-paced, high-energy, entertaining competitions.
Celeb Chef and Demonstrations:
Throughout the day, the celebrity chefs, as well as many local culinary guru’s will be giving free demonstrations on just about everything you ever wanted to learn about sweet confections. For fun, they’ve also added a Cake Dive and Cupcake Chuck! Festival goers can enter a raffle for the chance to “dive” into a beautiful cake filled with cash and prizes.
Have you ever wanted to throw a cupcake at your favorite chef? For a small donation , you can do just that in the “Cupcake Chuck!” And all this fun will be set to the beat of our 1950’s style Rockablilly band, KC’s own Rumblejetts.
