Let's Eat Cake!

One day last year Melissa DiStefano, of MasterPiece Weddings, woke up from a deep sleep and a very vivid dream. She remembered the dream as clearly as if it had happened in real life and it charged her with so much energy she decided to turn that dream into reality.

What was her dream? To host a national fundraiser – and thus was born “Let’s Eat Cake!

Let’s Eat Cake is a wedding cake competition benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The goal is to donate at least $50,000 to this deserving organization. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated directly to St. Jude’s to enhance their research efforts, which will improve the lives of the children and families who are affected by cancer.

Essentially, this event will create a very large Wedding Cake Buffet! Let’s Eat Cake will include a cake design and taste challenge as well as a live cake auction. The most coveted award is a "crowd's favourite" award, which will be determined by our guests after trying all of the delicious cakes.

Professional pastry chefs from all over the Southeast have been invited to compete. Aspiring pastry chefs and at-home bakers have also been invited to compete in the amateur division. Local and celebrity judges have volunteered their time to judge the event. There are four categories in each division; Best of Show, Most Beautiful & Creative Design, Tastiest Cake, and Crowd’s Favourite.

Be a sponsor, be a judge, be a competitor, be an attendee.
