Also, included in the day's event is a bake sale, a souvenior table, lunch for purchase, classes and entry displays.

This is an event one does not want to miss. Great raffle prizes, entry placement and winners prizes (cash and gifts) and door prizes.

Top-notch teachers and demonstrators have been chosen to make this a wonderful learning experience.

All profits go to the First Presbyterian Church for those in need. There is a raffle of 20 prizes where the funds will go to a fellow cake decorator's daughter who has a rare cancer that can affect her brain at anytime. This Zoe Foundation is for 6-year-old Zoe's medical expenses.

Already we have a great prize for the special raffle. The Knock Shoppe has generously donated a cake stand retailed valued at over $500.00!
