Three highly-skilled, creative supermarket cake decorators will vie for top honors as they demonstrate their decorating skills and creative talents in IDDBA's 20th Annual Cake Decorating Challenge.

The three-day contest begins with creating enough production cakes to fill one multi-tiered, 7' bakery case. Day two is devoted to the design of a wedding cake. On the last day, each contestant decorates three cakes, one from each category: special occasion, IDDBA show theme, and decorator's choice.

Contestants receive an all-expense paid trip to Atlanta, gifts, trophies, bragging rights, and publicity.

The winner of the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association's 19th annual Cake Decorating Challenge was Sarah Watts, Publix Super Markets Inc., Gainesville, FL.

Second place went to: Stephanie Murphree, Harp's Food Stores Inc., West Fork, AR

The third place winner was: Amanda Hansen, Coborn's, Inc., Sauk Rapids, MN
