Sweets lovers, unite!
It’s that time of year again. No, not Mardi Gras, although it’s that, too.
It’s time for Austin’s annual That Takes the Cake sugar art show and cake competition — put on by The Capital Confectioners Club of Austin — and the Spooners can’t wait to attend. Last year’s super hero theme was a blast and this year’s Cake-a-lot: Knights of the Turn Table is sure to be another crowd pleaser.
It’s too late to enter the cake competition if you haven’t turned in your registration already, but there’s still lots of fun to be had. General admission tickets are $10 for the day or $18 for both days and allows you to see all the cake creations, watch celebrity and expert demos and shop with national and local vendors.
This will be my third time to attend, with my mom, who drives from Texarkana, to take classes and enjoy the show. Last year there was a really good cake entry decorated as “Angry Birds.” Everyone that went by it would point out, look it’s “Angry Birds!” My mom asked me, “How does everyone know the name of their cake entry? Everyone must really like that one.” I had to explain to her that it’s a game. Mom’s are funny!
If you get a chance to attend, send us a tweet pic of your favorite cake with the hashtag #ohspooning.
We hope to see you there this weekend!
