Cakes Galore Featured At Tulsa State Fair at Oklahoma State Sugar Arts Show

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 16:12:25 CDT

Cakes Galore Featured At Tulsa State Fair  at Oklahoma State Sugar Arts Show From Minions riding a motorcycle to elegant gowns, cakes of all sizes were found in Tulsa over the weekend. Annually, the Tulsa State Fair hosts the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show on the first weekend of the fair. Over the past 23 years, the show has continued to grow and today it has become the largest cake decorating competition in America. Spokesperson Doug Vincent said this year’s show featured exhibitors from the Philippines, Australia, Wales, England, Belgium, as well as from numerous states. Vincent said having competitions like this has helped improve the overall workmanship of the industry.

The Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show offers a place to compete for youth, as well as different levels for adults from beginning to the master’s level, plus there’s the wedding cake competition. This year’s theme for the wedding cakes was “Fashion Week”, where decorators were challenged to draw inspiration from the fashion industry in decorating their cake.

Exhibitors were competing for more than $200,000 in cash and prizes. Vincent said winning the wedding cake division was worth $68,000 of prizes and cash, plus the prestige winning the show. This can have a huge impact on a cake decorators business in attracting future clients and business.

The Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show is always held the first weekend of the Tulsa State Fair.
