DAVENPORT, Iowa — Hy-Vee hosted their annual Extreme Cake Challenge featuring multiple animal themed cakes and colorful concoctions.
Decorators from Hy-Vee bakeries from around the area designed a cake, cookies and cupcakes in three and a half hours Thursday, Sept. 12.
The cakes were judged based on icing appearance, level of difficulty and technical appearance.
The winner walked away with $600 and the chance to compete in finals against hundreds of other decorators in Des Moines, Iowa on Nov. 9.
More than 260 decorators are competing in semifinals throughout Hy-Vee’s eight-state coverage, according to a press release.
