Cake Masters Awards 2019 Finalists!


Over the past week, we have been posting finalists of each category. Below are the 2019 finalists for the Cake Masters Awards in ALL their glory!

How will the winners be selected:

The skills-based categories, which includes Wedding Cake, Painted Cake, Sculpted Cake, Cookie, Modelling Excellence, Sugar Flowers, Best Show Piece and Collaboration are judged by our panel of expert judges.

Best Retailer, Best Cake Show, Best Magazine Cover and People’s Choice are the only categories based off the number of nominations.

Cake Hero is based off the feedback received from the nominations, Best Learning Experience is based off the feedback received and platform testing, and Rising Star is judged by the Cake Masters Awards Team and review of finalists’ portfolio and personal journey statement.

Cake Artist of the Year is chosen by the Cake Masters Awards Team, and recognises someone who has demonstrated incredible skill and great achievements.

This year we have made some changes to the Product Award, and really want to recognise the many fantastic products that you all nominated. Firstly, the award is being split into Edible (e.g. pastes, colours, etc.) and Non-Edible (e.g moulds, tools, stencils etc.). We felt that just awarding one product meant that so many others narrowly missed out, which is why there will be more than one winner in each sub-category! The finalists for each sub-category are below!
