Earlier this week, The City of Hope Foundation held their annual Let Them Eat Cake competition at the DoubleTree Hilton in downtown Philadelphia. The event showcased twenty-one fantasy wedding cakes from professional and student bakers who competed for this year's trophies. Natanya DiBona of Diner en Blanc Philadelphia served as head judge over a panel of celebrity chefs and media including former White House Chef John Moeller, Chef Kathy Gold (President of Les Dames d’Escoffier), Michael Klein (Philly.com), Laura Burkhardt (Where Magazine), A.D. Amorosi (Philadelphia City Paper), and yours truly (Glamorosi Magazine).
Most Artistic: The Merion for their immense Tree with Pixies; Best Taste: Classic Cakes for their lemon-raspberry Green Hill and Castle; Best Student: The Art Institute's Masha Lipkovsky for her white Hunger Games-themed cake; Audience Choice: The Master's Baker for their Moby Dick-themed cake. An additional award for Best Table Top was presented to the Bottle Pop Party Company for their gorgeous Boho Moroccan display.
Proceeds from Let Them Eat Cake benefit The City of Hope Foundation and its mission to research and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other life-threatening illnesses. For our coverage of last year's Let Them Eat Cake competition click here.
