All participants were given a time limit of 60 minutes to decorate a log cake. Decorating cream (white) weighing 1kg was provided with spatula. The contestants had to supply their own decoration and piping materials, eg candies, lollipops, paper, adhesive, styrofoam and other support materials.

    1. I didn't join. I wasn't aware of this contest until I was at the mall. Log cake is easy to make, no problem. What theme you want? :)

    1. Yes, but for hygiene and health concerns, all the log cakes decorated by the contestants were thrown away after the contest. The contestants did not bring back their works of art.

  3. Cool designs with these cakes. I wonder where does the tradition of "log" come from actually?
