Hello- I could not fly to San Diego and meet my cousin to attend the San Diego cake Show because my job was terminated. If any California cc attend the cake show can you please share your photos.

If you were not able to can you share cakes that impressed you, new trends you saw, demos you attended. Thanks.

I live in CA and would have loved to go but didnt know about it. How do you get that kind of information? I've tried googling for cake shows in Orange county but no luck.

If you go to the California Cake Club website I believe they have a link to the San Diego cake club. As far as I know, this is the only cake show in socal.

Thank you for sharing the photos. My gosh, what a lot of entries!

Do you know how many in total? And can you tell who the winners were?

May I ask who is the person in charge of this show too? I'd love to contact them.

thank you so much for posting these pics

some of those cakes are just breathtaking. I mean I don't even know how they do some of those techniques!

I did have a question: in a lot of pics the cakes were on sorta satin,pleated poofy stands. Were they provided or is that just a style I hadn't seen before.

thanks again for sharing.

I am glad everyone is enjoying the pics. The San Diego Cake Club works hard all year to put together the show.

Kim - there are a few people in the club that head the planning team for the cake show. You should be able to send a general email through the website and it will get routed to the correct people. I would need to check with them before giving out contact information. Is there a question that I may be able to answer for you? I wasn't part of the planning committee for the cake show but I am a member/historian of the cake club.

The whole event was so amazing and interesting, it was my first time at this event. Really learned alot from just being there and looking at all the wonderful cakes people did. I entered a foreign technique as a non professional and got 1st place, I had a wonderful experience and there will be another cake show in Del Mar. I have lots of pics I can share, feel free to ask.

PLease keep us informed when the next cake show is in Del Mar. My cousin iand his wife are stationed in San Diego. He is a pilot and she works in the computer field. but both love cake decorating.

I will save money and fly to the next show to meet my cousin and his wife.

Indigo, again thanks for sharing the pictures.

I live in NYand they have shows but I love Southern California and hope to visit the ICES in 2010.

If I won the lotterry I would move to Southern California.
