“Since winning cake international I have received an offer of a television opportunity, which I am doing. In my wildest dreams I never thought I could win ‘best in show’ at cake international. Well, I had a wild dream that came true – never give up!”
– Sarah Carr
Best in Show 2021
“As we emerge from COVID, people have started booking cakes for their get-togethers and are having fun with the ideas they want me execute for them as they have seen what I did at Cake International. Most of these are things I would not have ever dared to do before but I have fun trying! Nothing could have been more surreal than winning Best in Show at Cake International in 2019 & I cannot wait to go back to Cake International again.”
