Chicago Flower Show



The Retail Bakers of America (RBA) are breaking the mold to introduce some fantastic changes to their annual National Cake Decorating Competition. New location, new focus, new technology and over $14,000 in prize money!

In partnership with Pillsbury, the RBA is pleased to announce that the 14th annual National Bakers Plus Creative Decorating Competition will be held on March 21-22, 2015 at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show at Navy Pier. This amazing venue allows the RBA and Pillsbury the opportunity to show case to both industry and consumer audiences.

The Chicago Flower & Garden Show welcomes over 40,000 visitors to Navy Pier during the week long event. The Cake Decorating Competition will be center stage over two days allowing guests and fans to watch their favorite decorators at work.

The Cake Decorating Competition committee is working diligently to give the 2015 contest a new look. The focus has shifted to the decorators completing only 3 spectacular cakes during the two day competition. The competition will require decorators to complete a  themed wedding cake, a sculpted cake, and a “creative” cake in which the decorators will learn the theme the day the competition begins.


Thank you to all of the bakeries and decorators that participated in the 2014 CARBA Cake Decorating Competition!  Check back frequently for updates regarding the 2015 competition!
