Philips and Yuppiechef join The Wedding Expo® in search of the best wedding cake

The Wedding Expo®, South Africa's biggest bridal show, is excited to announce that Philips and Yuppiechef will be joining them in the search for the next best wedding cake in The Wedding Expo® Cake Challenge, held at the Expo on 5 and 6 April 2014.
The Wedding Expo® and its sponsors are inviting all cake makers to stand the chance of being judged "the best cake in 2014" by submitting their wedding cake to The Wedding Expo® Cake Challenge.

"This competition is now in its third year and we are thrilled to see that each year, the standard of cakes has improved!" says Amanda Cunningham, MD of The Wedding Expo®.

"An event like The Wedding Expo® Cake Challenge is the best platform for Philips to partner with to showcase the premium Philips Avance Collection which consists of the best in class kitchen appliances for achieving an outstanding quality cake," says Dimakatso Moloantoa, marketing manager kitchen appliances at Philips.

Fiona Hilton, head of registries Yuppiechef, is proud to be co-sponsoring The Wedding Expo® Cake Challenge, saying, "This partnership is a great way for us to reach, not only the baking enthusiast, but also the bride-to-be who is ready to plan her wedding and her gift registry."

After feedback from 2013 competition entrants, this year's Cake Challenge will feature themed novice and professional categories, as well as a number of enhancements.
