Studying the detail on a Calvin and Hobbes cake in The Great Cake Bake 2014

Studying the detail on a Calvin and Hobbes cake in The Great Cake Bake 2014

The Great Cake Bake in Knoxville draws entries from some of the area’s finest bakers, cake makers, and even some novices interested in dabbling in the art of embellishment. With proceeds from admission tickets going to Dolly Parton’s Imagination of Knoxville initiative (to send books to children in Tennessee each month free of charge), cakes and cupcakes must be designed around a book title or character.  And the details warrant second, third . . . even fourth glances!

Another category — Wedding Cakes — offers a glimpse into the sophisticated, artistic world of detailed cakes for a bride and groom’s special day.  Amazing, right?

This year’s Great Cake Bake is February 28, 2015, from 12:00 to 5:00 PM at Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, Tennessee.  Well worth the trip — especially if you are lucky enough to bring home one of these detailed designs!

  5. Oh my, what a thrill for those of us who consider cake decorating to be an art form. If only I lived closer, I’d spend the day there oohing and aching. Love the photos. 🙂
