Our Cake Judges
Below you will find our judges that we invited to help us. We asked high profile people in cake decorating industry to be our judges.
Because we can make sure that our contest is a fair game if we use outside judges. Also we'll line up a handful of judges and then tally their results. This way, the pressure isn't on one judge. Since we have set the guidelines in the contest and already let the judges knew what those guidelines are when they pick the winners.
Picking winners could be a lot of work for judges if we have hundreds of entries so we decided to pick our top 10 and then have our judges pick winners from those ten.
