Cake Expo 2020 in Reno was cancelled...but we’re bringing it to you virtually! Virtual Cake Expo 2020 August 1-2 right here on Facebook! More details coming soon!

For those who'd already started their entries for this year's show: we'll adjust the rules for next year to allow those entries to compete, even though they'll be over a year old by then.

03/11/2020

It is with great regret that the organizers of the National Capital Area Cake Show announce that the 2020 show has been canceled due to Coronavirus.

Even though the threat in our area appears small at the moment, with the recent announcement that WHO has declared a pandemic, along with CDC advice to avoid large gatherings, we feel the safety of our participants and attendees outweighs our desire to continue as planned.

We have been working with our venue, and they have generously allowed us to reschedule for the same weekend in 2021 without losing our deposit. Please mark your calendars for March 26-28, 2021. More details will be released as we have them.

The whole committee is grateful for all the supportive messages we have received from our vendors, teachers, demonstrators, judges, and attendees.

We have a large task ahead of us to process refunds for vendors, students, entrants, and attendees. It will take a bit of time, but if you have paid us for something, expect an email with options for refund vs. credit toward the rescheduled show.

We sincerely hope to see each and every one of you at the 2021 "10th Anniversary Again" show. Meanwhile, please stay safe.

Our Story

TEN YEARS AND STILL COUNTING

This year marks the National Capital Area Cake Shows (NCACS) 10th Anniversary. NCACS brings together artists, hobbyists and professionals who all share the love of decorating. As the largest cake show on the East Coasts, NCACS compiles cakes from beginners ages 4-100! World renown decorators compete in their own special category as well as children. The weekend is a continuum of activity all weekend long. At the NCACS there are classes taught by world class decorators, FREE exciting demonstrations, cupcake challenges, tasting competitions, the Largest Cake Competition, vendors, a tasty bake sale, an entire children’s program, and a huge Bling Party celebrating the National Capital Area Cake Show’s Anniversary!

International Cake Exploration Societé (ICES).

The National Capital Area Cake Show is sponsored by the Virginia Chapter of The International Cake Exploration Societé (ICES). ICES is a “not-for-profit” 501(c)(6) association that focuses on education and sharing the creative possibilities of sugar.

The Societe is staffed entirely by volunteers with a common goal of sharing the beauty of sugar art and this educational opportunity with the ICES membership and the public. Find out more about the International Cake Exploration Société (ICES).
