Cake Clash, a cake-baking competition and fundraiser for the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorder Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, recently took place at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Buckhead. The event had three different contests: wedding cake (this faux cake was graded on just the looks), theme cake (this faux cake was graded on just looks and was a homage to Aflac, so the bakers had to create “A Day at the Lake” cake) and cake tasting (a sample of their best cake to offer everyone). Prizes were given to the top three bakers in each category, and an overall winner was awarded the title of Best Baker in Georgia. The winners of each division were as follows: wedding cake – Gretchen the Baker, created by Gretchen Baker; theme cake – Cakes by Darcy, created by Darcy Lynn; and cake tasting – Zell’s Cottage Bakery, a chocolate cake with bacon created by Jennifer Watts. Zell’s also was named the overall winner.
