Do you have a sweet tooth? Well this is an event you don’t want to miss. I am super excited to be a guest judge this year. This is your chance to win 2 free tickets to the event. City of Hope Philadelphia celebrates ten years of fondant fun with Let Them Eat Cake: Fantasy Weddings on Monday, April 7, 2014 at 6:00pm at the DoubleTree Hilton (237 Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA). Brides-to-be, dessert fanatics and fondant foodies will sample creations from 40 professional pastry chefs and student bakers from around the tri-state region.  Guests will enjoy a new Sweetheart Tablescape competition, Korbel champagne, live music from BVT Live, and the opportunity to meet celebrity chefs Marc and Benny (City Cakes NY) and John Moeller (former White House chef). Tickets can be purchased at bit.ly/cohcake14 or by calling 215-985-0869. All proceeds benefit City of Hope to help cut out cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses. 

“What began ten years ago as an intimate evening organized by three friends has now become the Northeast’s premiere wedding cake competition – and Philadelphia’s sweetest event of the year,” said City of Hope’s Amy Tieman. “Our fantasy wedding theme takes us back to our roots. Brides-to-be can find inspiration as bakers let their imaginations run wild.” 
Whether you are a bride or groom, or simply have a huge sweet tooth, this is the perfect opportunity to sample 40 scrumptious cakes from the most talented bakers in the tri-state area. Early confirmed participants include Classic Cakes, Granny Schmidt’s, Wonderland Cakes, The Restaurant School of Walnut Hill and The Art Institute of Philadelphia.
Each Fantasy Weddings masterpiece will be judged by celebrity judges, wedding experts and local VIPs in two levels (professional and college) in six categories (Most Artistic, Best Tasting, Best Theme, Best of Show, more). Guests can also vote in the “People’s Choice” category.
Celebrity judges for 2014 are Chefs Marc and Benny from City Cakes NY and former White House Chef John Moeller. Marc and Benny have been seen on TLC, Food Network, Rachel Ray and E! Network. Moeller has been  chef to three White House administrations, including President  George H.W. Bush, President William Jefferson Clinton and President George W. Bush.
