Western Institute of Technology Iloilo outdid the other teams in The Wedding Cake category, winning for themselves P 20,000 cash prize.
This year's ICDC theme has been set to fusion. "We want to highlight the fact that the intricate and highly expressive art of cake decoration can also be a platform for one's passion and individual expression, much like any other form of art," Goldilocks Marketing Director Cherry Caluya pointed out.
The ten qualifying teams from Western Institute of Technology Iloilo, West Visayas State University, St. Anne College of Lucena, Technological University of the Philippines, Asian College - Quezon City, Pangasinan State University, Lyceum University - Laguna, Calayan Educational Foundation Inc., University of Cebu and Gabriel Taborin College of Davao integrated the art of fashion, painting and sculpture into their cake creations.
Prior to the 11th Intercollegiate Cake Decorating Challenge, the qualifying teams for this year attended workshops hosted by experts in the fields of fashion design, sculpture and the visual arts. "We made sure to equip our competing cake decorators with different perspectives involving different fields of creativity," Caluya further emphasized.
Guests were also treated to a range of activities such as a DYC (Decorate Your Cake) area for children), a Cake Decorating Workshop plus a display of past ICDC entries and Goldilocks Premium Decorated Cakes.
