cakes inspired by art

Ipswich residents are welcome to take part in this amazing Cake Art Competition being organised by The Outrageous Cake Company which will take part on Saturday the 21st September as part of Art Eat Festival.

The theme: cakes inspired by art. These can be elaborately decorated cakes, cakes as pieces of edible art, cakes representing a famous piece of art, an artist, an art movement or even art materials.

The festival and competition organisers are incredibly excited to see what entrants come up with, so get your cake design thinking caps on! It’s time to get sticky, throw some flour around, have a bake-off in your school, business or home and show off your talents to the experts.
