This year's event theme is based on the title, "It's All Fun and Games," which is based on the limitless creative opportunities.
Cake Show organizer and adjunct faculty member of the Culinary Arts department at BCC, Kristine Hastreiter, stated that "Professional, student, and novice entrants to the "Creative" segment of the competition can draw their inspiration from board games, card games, puzzles, casino games, Jenga, croquet and even lawn darts."

The panel of judges from three specialized areas include cake decorators, culinary arts instructors, and bakery owners.
The guest judge and keynote speaker will be celebrity baker Lisa Raffael. She is a three-time medalist of the "Food Network Cake Challenge." Raffael, also appeared on the show, "Fabulous Cakes" on TLC.
Courtney Silva Rezendes, who is one of the competitors on the television show, "Spring Baking Challenge" on the Food Network, will be on hand to give decorating demos on cakes.
