UMBA Announce Ultimate Cake Decorating Competition Winners

Zombies invaded the MOA, as competitors competed for over $2500 in cash prizes at the 7th Annual Ultimate Cake Decorating Contest held at Mall of America on Sunday, October 7.  The scary and sometimes cute looking zombies were all made out of cake and icing as ten competitors competed to sculpt a birthday cake that celebrated “Zombie. Birthday”  Meanwhile eight teams hurried to construct and decorate a five tiered wedding cake for  “ Bernice & Tom’s Fall Wedding” in three hours. As they competed, young decorators got a chance to try their hand at decorating in a nearby cupcake decorating station where their $2 donation went towards the UMBA scholarship fund.
