The annual cake decorating competition is perhaps the most eye-catching event at Queensland’s Agricultural Show in Australia. Tastes seem no longer to be the dominant winning element in the competition.

From elaborate tiers to fruitcake, and ice blue Smurfs, nearly a thousand baked beauties have been submitted to win cake of the year at the show. Entries are up by six percent this year, proving cake-decorating and jam-making are far from dying arts.

An assortment of jams has proven to be the indispensable company of creative cakes. With hundreds of jars to taste, no breakfast is required for these ladies. Agricultural Show organisers say the event continues to grow and record crowds are expected. A traditional cake scooped the overall prize.
