The ACADA Ultimate Australian Cake Decorating Competition
2021 Competitors' Photos
The Ultimate Australian Cake Decorating Competition is designed to encourage people of all experience levels to reach outside of their personal boundary, to encourage them to be creative and to do their very best. Many competitors spend months planning and making their competition piece. Every competitor invests their heart and soul. As a little momento of encouragement and appreciation for a job well done, our professional photographer has snapped each competitor with their entry. We encourage each and every competitor to scroll down to find their photo. Please download it as a reminder of a job well done! Before you do though, please read the important tribute below. We look forward to welcoming you back next year and to see how much you've grown.
The 2021 ACADA Ultimate Australian Cake Decorating Competition was a very special competition! International Cake Show Australia was the first face to face Cake, Cookie & Sweet Show and competition to return globally, since COVID-19 impacted our world. Normally more than ten thousand visit Brisbane for the show each year. They come from across Australia and all parts of the world. At the time the show and competition were held (14th -16th May 2021) there had been 165,772,430 cases of COVID-19 reported globally. Many more cases were never reported. Worldwide 3,437,545 people had died. Australian borders were closed to international visitors, so our international competitors were not able to participate this year. They watched on from a distance, through social media, and experienced both excitement and disappointment. Many had finished their competition pieces.
This year's competition is dedicated to those within Australia and globally who have had their lives devastated by COVID, those who have lost loved ones and to our many Australian competitors who finally got to submit their competition entries after two show postponements. They traveled from every part of Australia to participate. To our international competitors we stand with you, and look forward with excitement to welcoming you back again next year. Stay strong. We love you!
